Amalienborg

Amalienborg
 Classical Danish old world courtyard.

Classical Danish old world courtyard.

The winter home of the Danish royal family consists of four identical classicizing palace façades. In the center of the courtyard is a statue of King Federick V, Amalienborg's founder. This is pretty much in line with what I would expect the royal old world to look like.

For those who savor in the historical charms of Europe, you can delight in the fact that these palaces were built in the mid 1700s. Various Danish royalty have lived in the palaces, along with other government institutions being housed there, such as the Supreme Court and Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
