An Evening at the Queens Residence

Copenhagen has grown a lot the past twenty years. But in many ways, Copenhagen is still a very small capital. A good example of this is Amalienborg, the Queens residence: Everyone can just walk into the Queens garden (Amaliehaven and the square in in front of Amalienborg) 24-7, without paying an entrance fee, and without seeing a horde of tourists. That’s quite amazing.

The Metro station Marmorkirken opened in the fall of 2019, so it is also quite easy to go visit the queens residence now. I took an evening walk in order to see the city life around the castle – the axis going from the Opera via Amalienborg to the Marble Church (Marmorkirken/Frederiks Kirke).

And what a quiet evening! But what did I expect from a Sunday evening in November? Anyways, have a look at the photos in the gallery below:-)
