Christiansborg Slot, formerly the home of Danish kings and queens, is the current location of the Danish Parliament, the Supreme Court, and the Ministry of State. The exquisite royal reception chambers, the remains from the 11th century, and the royal kitchen are all sights that tourists may enjoy while they are there.

Things to do at Christiansborg Slot:

  • Exploring the beautiful salons and gilded apartments, some of which are still used by the Royal Family for special occasions, is a wonderful way to spend the day:

Two of the Royal Reception Rooms where the Queen of Denmark meets with ambassadors from other countries are the Tower Room and the Oval Throne Room. The lavish Throne Room has a balcony that features a pair of thrones for observers to use while watching the crowning of Danish monarchs. The Alexandra Hall is where the official banquets take place.

  • The collection of tapestries depicts events from the first thousand years of Danish history:

In 1990, in honor of Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II's 50th birthday, the Danish business community presented the queen with 11 tapestries. The paintings that Bjrn Nrgaard did on the full-size drawings served as the basis for the tapestries.

  • Take a good look at the menacing tower that is perched far above the grounds:

If you approach Slotsholmen from Ny Vestergade, you must cross the canal's westernmost section before entering Christiansborg Slot's expansive main courtyard. Slotsholmen is accessible through Ny Vestergade.

This location was formerly utilized as royal riding grounds and still exudes a strong sense of equestrian culture. It is presided over by a statue of Christian IX (1863-1906) on horseback, surrounded on each side by stables and carriage buildings.

  • Investigate the area beneath the earth for any traces of the castle:

At a separate entrance in the inner courtyard, a fee must be paid to view the remnants of the ancient castle's outer wall, which was built in 1167.

In addition, guests can tour Christiansborg Slotskirke, the domed chapel destroyed by stray pyrotechnics in 1992 but has since undergone painstaking reconstruction.

  • Visit the Church at Christiansborg Slot to get in touch with your spiritual side:

It is considered as the most spectacular churches of Copenhagen, and the royal family and the parliament meet there regularly.

  • The theatre, which dates back to the 1740s, is a pretty wonderful spot to see:

The court theatre is a throwback to the past and is kept in the same manner it was built and had a wonderful vibe. When he was younger, legendary author Hans Christian Andersen enrolled at this city's ballet school for one year, even though he was a lousy dancer.
