Marselisborg Palace is the summer residence of the Royal family. During the summer, when the Royal family is in residence at the Palace, the Changing of the Guard by the Life Guard takes place at noon every day. The Palace grounds, including the Queen’s rose garden, are open to the public when the Royal family is not in residence.
Long Royal history
Marselisborg Palace was given by the people of Denmark as a wedding gift to the Crown Prince Christian (later Christian X) and his consort Princess Alexandrine. They used it as their summer residence. The current palace was rebuilt in 1899 – 1902 by Architect Hack Kampmann.
Royal summer residence
In 1967 King Frederik IX transferred the palace to his daughter Crown Princess Margrethe (later Margrethe II) and her consort, Prince Henrik. The Royal couple also use Marselisborg Palace as their summer residence.
