The seat of the country's parliament, the stately Christiansborg Slot stands directly above the ruins of a castle that existed in this very spot nearly 1,000 years ago. Take a guided tour of the palace to see its famous royal reception rooms used by the queen to entertain visiting heads of state. Be sure to visit the largest of the reception rooms, a hall so vast it can seat up to 400 guests. For a crash course in Danish history, visit the remains of the original castle to learn about the palace's long service as a royal residence and seat of legislative power.
