At the Amalienborg Palace you will see Copenhagen's version of the Buckingham Palace. Some may tell you it is 4 times better as it is made up of four identical buildings, all considered palaces within Amalienborg Palace itself. In the center of the complex is a famous statue of King Frederik V which has been standing since 1771. Just across the water you can spot the Copenhagen Opera house, one of the most expensive ever built.
On your way to the modern town center you will have an outside stop of the Rosenborg Castle. This was the summerhouse and creation of King Christian IV who stayed here while living in Copenhagen, it was also the site of his death. Christian IV was the longest-reigning monarch of Denmark who stood in power for 59 years. This castle's greatness matches the length of his reign!
As you pass through the highlights of the city center you will approach the impressive Christianborg Palace where you will have an inside visit. This palace is one of a kind as it is the only one in the world that houses all three of the governments supreme powers; Executive, Legislative and Judicial. A guided tour will bring you to some of the most impressive rooms on the property.
