Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful palaces in Denmark, and also a functioning palace, Amalienborg still serves as the residence of the royal family to this day. The palace consists of four mansions, united around the square of the same name. Two of them – the mansions of Christian VII and Christian VIII – are open for tourists. Here you can see how the royal chambers looked like in 1863-1947, especially since all the furnishings, furniture and household items have been preserved since then.
