A day filled with extravanganca and the history of the danish monarchy

The order of the sights may vary depending on opening hours or special events.
We start out by visiting Roskilde Cathedral so I get a chance to tell you the history and background of Denmark and the Royal family.
From Roskilde we go back to Copenhagen where we visit Rosenborg Castle and the Crown jewels, we go by Amalienborg Palace - the residens of the Royal Family, if time at all permits we will watch the Change of the guard and then We en up at Christiansborg Castle (the Parlament) where we take a tour of the Queens Representation rooms and the Royal wing and if open and we have time, we will also see the queens stables, horses and chariots.
