Amalienborg


Turn right down Frederiksgade from Marmorkirken to reach Slotsplads, a square surrounded by the four palaces of Amalienborg, the centrepiece of Frederikstad and home of the Danish royal family since 1794. Designed by Eigtved, the four almost identical places are functional rather than sumptuous, and the whole ensemble is striking for its accessibility and openness rather than its grandeur - you're free to wander around Slotsplads, though you'll be challenged by the bearskin-hatted Livgarden (Life Guards) if you get too close to the palaces.
