Changing of the Danish Royal Guard

At Amalienborg Palace in the heart of Copenhagen, I visited the seat of one of the world’s oldest monarchies. On the palace square I watched the changing of the guards. Amalienborg made up of four identical buildings is famous for its royal guard, known as The Royal Life Guard. Every day you can watch the changing of the guards as they march from their barracks by Rosenborg Castle through the streets of Copenhagen to Amalienborg, often accompanied by music.
