Create an itinerary including Christiansborg Slot
The seat of the country's parliament, the stately Christiansborg Slot stands directly above the ruins of a castle that existed in this very spot nearly 1,000 years ago. Take a guided tour of the palace to see its famous royal reception rooms used by the queen to entertain visiting heads of state. Be sure to visit the largest of the reception rooms, a hall so vast it can seat up to 400 guests. For a crash course in Danish history, visit the remains of the original castle to learn about the palace's long service as a royal residence and seat of legislative power. Check the website for downloadable maps of the palace. Add Christiansborg Slot to your Copenhagen travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Copenhagen holiday planning site.

  • Christiansborg Palace is indeed a gorgeous place worth the visit. The history conveyed as you tour the palace is amazing. You will see much of the important history of the Danish realm and monarchs...

  • Beautiful place, there is stables with horses but keep quiet so they can rest. You can go up to the tower for free but you have to pass a security check, at the tower there is a free toilet and at the tower there a beautiful view. When you go out the second elevator will take you to an automatic door and you will ve outside.
  • The staff were amazing. The app used to tour is so helpful and informative. Of all the museums we saw on our Copenhagen trip I thought this one was the best presentation. I loved the Royal Reception Rooms but honestly no part of this tour disappointed
