Denmark’s much-loved Royal Family is one of the oldest monarchies in the world, and its seat is Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen. As a visitor to the city, you can experience life as lived by the current Danish Royal Family, as well as their ancestors, as you walk down cobblestone streets and around gilded palaces, as well as in glorious deer parks and in Copenhagen shops.
In 2022, the Royal Family will stand in an even larger spotlight than usual as Queen Margrethe celebrates 50 years on the throne with Golden Jubilee celebrations and events throughout the year.
But no matter when you visit Copenhagen, there are multiple ways to experience the royal city and participate in experiences fit for a queen. Discover castle ruins buried beneath the city going back hundreds of years, and court purveyors offering the perfect souvenir for you to take home. See a throne made of unicorn horns and go behind the scenes at a real royal palace. March beside the Royal Guard down the city streets accompanied by a piped band, and sip tea in a royal court-approved tea shop. Whatever you’re interested in seeing in Copenhagen, there’s almost certainly a royal connection.
