1. Amalienborg Castle
Amalienborg in Copenhagen is the winter residence of the royal couple.
This castle in the capital of Denmark is an important architectural development in the classical Rococo architectural style.
Amalienborg, in Copenhagen, is made up of four externally uniform but internally quite different palaces around a large courtyard.
In the large courtyard, visitors can see an equestrian statue of Frederik V, who was the founder of the Amalienborg Palace complex and Frederiksstad.
Today, the public can visit two palaces in Amalienborg: the Palace of Christian VIII and the Palace of Christian VII. This is a great attraction worth visiting if you are in Copenhagen, and it is quick and easy to find.
If you plan to take a tour, this castle is part of the Copenhagen Grand Tour.
2. Kronborg Castle
Kronborg Castle (Danish: Kronborg Slot) is strategically located on a very narrow stretch of water between Denmark and Sweden, near Helsingor.
Its location helped medieval kings regulate import and export and were a collection point for river taxes paid by passing ships.
The city of Helsingor is not far from Copenhagen, approximately 49 kilometers (30 miles), and can be found on the northern tip of the Danish island of Zealand.
Kronborg Castle is said to have been used as the inspiration for Elsinore's setting in Shakespeare's "Hamlet."
If you are taking a guided tour, this castle is included in the Hamlet Castle Tour from Copenhagen and the North Zealand Castle Tour.
3. Fredensborg Palace
Fredensborg Castle is an 18th-century palace north of Copenhagen on Lake Esrum.
The castle enjoys a special status among Danish palaces as it is the residence most used by the royal couple for official state banquets, including the 2004 wedding banquet of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.
The palace gardens are always open. Guided tours of the palace are generally offered in July, every 15 minutes in the afternoon.
