Highlights of the Queens Palace
Enjoy a close-up experience of royal history at Christiansborg Palace
For more than 1000 years a king or queen has sat on the Danish throne. For centuries the centre of their power was the most influential island in Denmark, Slotsholmen, where Christiansborg Palace is located today.
Behind the palace walls, in the magnificent Royal Reception Rooms, Her Majesty carries out her official duties as the queen of Denmark
The guided tour Highlights of the Queens Place is a royal journey through history. The tour will take visitors through the Queen’s palace, giving them a real sense of Her Majesty’s role, rituals and duties.
A spectacular, dramatic visit to a royal palace
This tour takes visitors through all the attractions at Christiansborg Palace, which are still used by the court today.
Walk through the Royal Reception Rooms, where gold, chandeliers and art treasures add a touch of glamour to the Queen’s official role in galas and state visits: equally when people have an audience with Her Majesty and when foreign heads of state are in Denmark.
