There are no less than four royal palaces in the city center. The Amalienborg Palace is the residence of the current monarch, Queen Margrethe II. The royal palaces were built by Danish noble families in the late 1700s and are hailed as some of the greatest architectural masterpieces in Europe. The buildings have been beautifully preserved and if you visit at noon, you can witness the changing of the guard. When in residence, the royal coat of arms is flown outside the palaces to indicate the queen’s presence.

The City Hall Square is one of the largest in Europe and can accommodate up to 50,000 people. When major events take place, huge big-screen televisions are often set up in the square and the area takes on a festival-type vibe. Just off the square is the world-famous Tivoli amusement park. Here, you can enjoy rides and rollercoasters, fine dining, live entertainment, art galleries and cafés. Around Christmastime each year, the park is transformed into a magical winter wonderland, complete with colorful lights and special Christmas treats.
