The Amalienborg is the winter home of the Danish royal family, and is located in Copenhagen, Denmark. It consists of four identical classicizing palace façades with rococo interiors around an octagonal courtyard; in the centre of the square is a monumental equestrian statue of Amalienborg’s founder, King Frederick V (Source: Wikipedia.org)
A 10 minute walk from the Kongens Nytorv metro station will bring you to the Amalienborg. Its a beautiful sight, when one first arrives at the intersection, on the left of which is the magnificent Danish national church. One is in awe at the sheer size of that beautiful dome and the intricate architecture which adorns the church building as a whole. You turn right from this intersection to head towards Amalienborg. The wide expanse of the beautiful pebble strewn courtyard is a mesmerising sight in itself.
I happened to be at the palace on a lovely evening when the clouds and sun were playing hide & seek. I got some beautiful shots of the palace with the dramatic skies . I then walked along the harbour towards the kastellet, but then it was getting dark pretty quickly, so I turned back from the Citadel. Here are the photos from this trip to Amalienborg.
