Must visit if you're in Copenhagen! It's amazing to see the marching band and changing of the guard when the Queen is in residence. Definitely visit the palace. You can wander the guest area freely.

Impressive castle! It's cool to see when you're there passing through but I actually don't know why someone would go there just for this. The soldiers are nice to watch, but that's about it. Nothing to do except walking by to say "I was there". You cannot go in there since the queen and king live there
