Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen, Denmark, is home to the Danish royal family during the winter months. Constructed in the 1700’s, it is considered one of the greatest works of Danish Rococo architecture.

The Danish Royal Guard march daily from nearby Rosenborg Castle at 11:30 in the morning through Copenhagen, executing the changing of the guard in front of Amalienborg Palace at noon. Every other 2 hours, there is a post replacement, which is what is depicted in my photos here (I believe these are from around 2 pm) from a trip to Denmark’s capital city a couple of weeks ago. The whole spectacle (of the post replacement) lasts about 5 minutes.
