Out there on the great courtyard [HCA bedroom faced the palace courtyard] I would walk, 5 or 6 years ago; no one in the entire city knew me, and now, in the company of a dear and esteemed family, I may revel in my Shakespeare, - Oh Lord, it is just like Aladdin, I too sit at the palace and look down. Merciful God! No, you will not forsake me. I could embrace you! Hans Christian Andersen

Amalienborg is an 18th-century rococo complex of four palaces. The Royal Life Guards (Den Kongelige Livgarde), march from their barracks (Gothersgade 100, Rosenborg Castle) through Copenhagen to Amalienborg, where the changing of the guard takes place at 12:00 noon. The Amalienborg Museum in Christian VIII's palace, allows visitors into the private interiors. - AsNotedIn
