When sightseeing in Denmark, the Christiansborg Palace is an
architecture or history lover's dream, and a winter snowfall adds
to its romantically royal appearance. This is further enhanced by
the presence of ruins dating as far back as 1167 AD, when it
existed as Absalon's Castle. The complex consists of several
different buildings, centred by a neo-baroque core, and is home to
important institutions; the Danish Parliament, the Prime Minister's
Office and the Supreme Court. The royal family uses the palace
church, the Royal Reception Rooms and the Riding Ground Complex.
From the front steps of the main castle, there are also some
stunning churches within easy viewing distance. This attraction
embodies the essence of Danish history, architecture and
Opening Time: Open daily (except Mondays form October to April),
