Amalienborg Copenhagen Reviews
Not the grandest of them all, but some pretty good photo spots! Jul 12, 2016
If you've visited other grand castles in the Zealand area, you won't find this the most exciting. That said, the external shots alone warrant a visit. And, if you've got the Copenhagen Card, it's free anyway!
The Castle is bang in between Frederik's Church and the river, and the Castle itself is 4 quarter-circle buildings all pieced together with cobbled pavements and a statue of Christian in the centre. There are lots of people flowing through these which makes taking the quiet photo a bit challenging, but definitely injects that tourist life into the surroundings.
Even though there are 4 buildings in the castle, it's only 1 that's opened for tourists as the Royal Family also lives here. The tourist building has 3 floors (well 2 floors of exhibits). I was amazed at the portrait overload in almost every hall. There were also several photos of Christian IX and Queen Louise, who were known as "the in-laws of Europe" because four of their children ascended to the thrones of England, Greece, Russia and Denmark respectively.
Don't budget more than an hour for this place - but it's well worth the time. This could also be clubbed with a visit to both Frederik's Church and the Little Mermaid statue. AND, the Design museum is only a hop, skip and jump away
