A visit to the majestic Amalienborg Palace, especially during the changing of the guards ceremony, is well worth the time and money during a family vacation to Copenhagen, Denmark. Kids love seeing the guards exchange duty as the Royal Guards band plays traditional military marches during the daily, noontime ceremony. The Amalienborg Palace, which is the winter home of the Danish Royal family, actually consists of four identical palaces built in 1750 around an octagonal courtyard near the waterfront. At the center of the courtyard stands the equestrian statue of King Frederik V. Amalienborg was originally built for four noble families. However, when Christiansborg Palace burned down in 1794, the royal family bought the palaces and moved in. Over the years, various kings and their families have resided in the four different palaces. The public can learn more about the royal family by visiting the museum, which allows access to the gala and other rooms containing collectibles and photographs. Amalienborg Palace is a fun excursion for most families while visiting Copenhagen, Denmark.
