Christiansborg Slot, Copenhagen

The seat of the country's parliament, the stately Christiansborg Slot stands directly above the ruins of a castle that existed in this very spot nearly 1,000 years ago. Take a guided tour of the palace to see its famous royal reception rooms used by the queen to entertain visiting heads of state. Be sure to visit the largest of the reception rooms, a hall so vast it can seat up to 400 guests.

  • The tower is available free of charge, but there is a security check like at the airport, as there is also the parliament in the building. You go up with the elevator, so you can comfortably enjoy the view. The castle should definitely be visited, it is worth seeing. Impressive the large ballroom with tapestries from the modern era. The representation rooms are still used today. The castle ruins can be seen if you like and are interested in them. Great is the castle kitchen in the state of 1937. You can see what a paint job it was at big festivals. The equipment of the kitchen I worth seeing. There are still the royal stables. However, it was already closed when we were through with the castle tour
