Fun to watch The Changing of the Guard ceremony everyday at noon. Well worth it. Not only is it free. But you can if you get there early you can get a good spot and get up close to the guards and actually get good pictures and see them in action. Not.. Read more »


Again Copenhagen shows some of it's marvelous architecture. The guards are interesting for a minute, but nothing too special. If you come for the guards, don't bother. If it's the beautiful buildings, this is for you!

Must visit if you're in Copenhagen! It's amazing to see the marching band and changing of the guard when the Queen is in residence. Definitely visit the palace. You can wander the guest area freely. I appreciated that staff would move to another room.. Read more »


It was interesting to see the rooms and studies of the royals, completely filled floor to ceiling with framed photos, pipes, books, and knickknacks galore! It was a hoot - is this really how they lived, or did they just fill the rooms with all their .. Read more »
