Amalienborg Palace

Hotels near Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen, Denmark .

The Amalienborg Palace is the winter home of the Danish royal family, and is situated in Copenhagen in Denmark. It has four matching palace façades with rococo interiors with an octagonal courtyard in the center of which is a monumental equestrian statue of King Frederik V, the founder of the palace.

The Amalienborg palace was bought by the Danish royal family after their earlier residence was ruined by fire in the late eighteenth century. It was originally designed for four very big noblemen’s houses.

The atmosphere at Amalienborg is very relaxed but the guards are always keeping a close watch. The guard changes at noon daily and it is quite a spectacle to behold as he marches through the streets to the accompaniment of music just before he takes up his post.

Don’t forget to see the statue of Bishop Absalon, the founder of Copenhagen. The huge statue and key landmark shows him mounted on a horse at the bottom of which are fish which denotes the early source of wealth here at which time fish was so much in abundance that they say you could lift it out of the water with your hands.

Known to be one of the world’s cycling cities, you can take a city safari bicycle tour to get a feel of the place quickly and effectively. The tour takes up to twenty cyclists at a time around the main attractions of the city and the guides speak both English and Danish. For those who prefer the cool of the night, there are tours at night as well all starting from near the Danish Architecture Centre.

Another must-see is Denmark’s Aquarium. It has as many as 70 separate aquariums with over 285 species from the world over.

Choose from the three star Comfort Hotel Esplanaden Copenhagen starting from €92 or the four star Copenhagen Admiral at €113 or the Phoenix Copenhagen at €154. Other hotels include the four star Clarion Hotel Neptun and 71 Nyhavnand the five star D'Angleterre.
