Originally constructed as townhouses for Danish nobility in the mid-18th century, the Amalienborg Palace has been home to the Danish royal family since their original residence (Christianborg Palace) burned down in 1794. The four identical residences built around an octagonal square are some of the finest examples of Rococo architecture in the country and two of the palaces, Christian VII and Christian VIII are open to the public from July through September. Aim to visit at midday, when the Danish Royal Life Guard march through the streets of Copenhagen to perform the changing of the guard at the center of the square. Other highlights of the palace include the Jean Delange–designed gardens of Amalienhaven, set between the palace and the harbor, which overlooks the impressive Copenhagen Opera House.
