Christiansborg Palace (Christiansborg Slot) Tours

Christiansborg Palace (Christiansborg Slot)
Once the principal residence of Danish monarchs, Christiansborg Palace is now the beating heart of Denmark’s government—home to the country’s parliament, prime minister’s office, and supreme court. Christiansborg is one of Copenhagen’s most iconic landmarks, holding over 800 years of Danish history.

The Basics
The Christiansborg Palace (Christiansborg Slot) welcomes visitors by guided tour, allowing you to stroll through the Throne Room, where Danish monarchs are crowned; the richly decorated Queen’s Library; the grand Royal Banqueting Hall; and the Great Hall, where a series of tapestries chronicle Denmark’s past. You can also tour the Royal Stables, Palace Chapel, parliament buildings, and on-site Theatre Museum. Beneath the palace foundations, you can explore a series of ancient ruins that date back to the Middle Ages. 

Most Copenhagen city tours include a stop at the iconic palace, whether you want to explore the city on foot, Segway, or bus. Entrance to the palace is by guided tour only. Admission is free with a Copenhagen Card, though you must purchase separate tickets for the Royal Reception Rooms, Royal Stables, Royal Kitchen, and ruins.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Christiansborg Palace is a must for first-time visitors to Copenhagen, especially those who love history, architecture, and all things royal.
  • Large bags, strollers, and umbrellas are not allowed in the Royal Reception Rooms. Cloakrooms and lockers are located next to the ticket office. 
  • There is free Wi-Fi at the palace tower’s viewing platform and upscale restaurant.
  • The palace is accessible to wheelchair users. Visitors should call in advance to reserve the use of wheelchairs and walkers.

How to Get There
Christiansborg Palace is located on the islet of Slotsholmen in central Copenhagen. There is very limited parking in the area around Christiansborg, so it’s best to arrive on foot or via public transportation. Multiple city buses stop at the palace, and the nearest metro station is Kongens Nytorv, located within a 10-minute walk of the palace.

When to Get There
Christiansborg Palace is open year-round but occasionally closes for official political and royal functions. Opt for an early-morning visit to avoid crowds, especially during July and August. 

Copenhagen’s Royal Abodes
Although Amalienborg Palace is now the official royal residence, the Danish royal family was based in Christiansborg Palace until 1794. Rosenborg Palace in Copenhagen and Frederiksborg Palace in Hillerød—both built by King Christian IV in the early 17th century—are also former royal residences. 
Address: Christiansborg Slotsplads, Copenhagen, Denmark

Wonderful Wonderful Walks of Copenhagen

Wonderful Wonderful Walks of Copenhagen

star-5
My "innovative, informative, sustainable and (very) entertaining" walking tours of Copenhagen have been running for seven years, and are open for bookings for Danes, internationals and anyone lucky enough to be here this summer! Copenhagen is back on its feet - and if you'd like to take yours on this 'new normal' walking tour, then I promise to show you why it's such a fascinating, well-run and liveable city. This 3.5 hour experience is about being outside (you can expect correct social distancing procedures) great exercise, information and fun! We'll delve beyond the flashy statistics, and try to get to grips with understanding a little more the national psyche. We'll discover how the Danes cope with the darkness, being 'happy', we'll hear about a the boozing, candle burning and flag waving, also the brilliant environmental efforts which leave the air so fresh. The passion for bicycling, divorcing, and the ever popular royal family. You'll get to see the sights too :-)
