Christian's II Palace is rarely open for visitors. It's often used by the royal family, because the palace is the official place for audiences with the Danish Queen. Amalienborg borders with Amaliehaven, a public park, which is located between the palace and the port. This park doesn't have a long history - it was created only in 1983 by the Belgian architect Delone. Not only natives, but also a lot of tourists spend much time in this oasis in the very heart of the big city.
Every day at 12 o'clock one can watch the guard changing. The guard marches from Rosenborg Castle to Amalienborg. Rosenborg was built in the beginning of the 7th century. Outside the castle is surrounded by beautiful canals and a cozy park. Inside the castle one can see rooms with marvellous paintings, ceramics and jewellery of the Danish Royal family, including the crown of Christian V. The dining room is decorated with fantastic wall carpets with the image of the glorious victory of the Danish in the Denmark-Sweden war (1675-1679).
