The home of the royal family in Denmark is Amalienborg Palace that is situated in the capital city, Copenhagen. The palace was opened in 1760 and was originally used as the home of nobles until the old royal palace burned down, the royals then moved into Amalienborg and have used it as their home ever since. The palace consists of four classical buildings with Rococo interiors that are situated around an octagonal courtyard, which has a statue of King Frederick in its centre. The palace is seen as a must-see for visitors to the city and the changing of the guard is a highly popular event.
The easiest way to get to the palace is by using the public transport system, specifically the bus system. By bus, use either the 1A, 20E, 26 or 350S.
