Amalienborg Palace is the home and official residence of Denmark's Royal Family. Originally built for four noble families in 1760 the palace consists of four identical buildings layed out around an expansive octagonal courtyard. While not as grand as royal city residences in London, St. Petersburg or Paris, Amalienborg does enthrall you with its axical layout and smooth integration with its surrounding landmarks including the Copenhagen Waterfront, Frederik's Church (Marble Church), Amaliehavn (Amalie Garden) and the most recent addition in 2006, the grand Copenhagen Opera House. #AmalienborgPalace #CopenhagenOperaHouse #Amaliehavn #FrederiksChurch #Copenhagen #Denmark
