What people are saying:

The Royal Palace of Amreimburg, on the shore of the Orson Strait in the eastern part of Copenhagen, is the main palace of the Danish royal family. The Queen of Denmark spends most of the year here. The Royal Guards guarding the palace are all around 1.9 meters. They wore bearskin hats, black uniforms, gold buttons, blue trousers, white ribbons, and big boots on their ankles, and white straps crossed in front of them, swords and shackles (ancient fashion bullets, ammunition) hanging behind them, living like the "iron soldier" in Andersen's fairy tale. They stood at a fixed point, with their guns, at times standing in front of the spire, the eight-rowed, red sign; at other times, with their shoulder-fired guns and their hands crossed, and with their feet in front, the two guards walked face to face or side by side from one end of the gate to the other. Then they turned 180 degrees back.

Additional Information


Amalienborg Palace is the place where the Danish royal family lived and the royal palace. When Christian VII ruled in 1794, a fire broke out in Christiansburg, causing members of the royal family to migrate to Amerinburg for refuge. Subsequently, Frederick V decided to build this into a Rococo-style building. To commemorate the king, people built the equestrian statue of Frederick V, which stands in the center of the octagonal square of the palace.
