The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.

The Royal Kitchen is a part of the riyal Palace complex in Copenhagen, and you can do it after visiting the Palace itself.

The place gives a glimpse about the everyday task of providing food for the Royal family and feasts for guests on special occasions throughout the years. This section is not very big and can be visited in less than an hour.

I visited this place mainly because it was free for Copenhagen Card owners.If it wouldn't, I'd probably thinked twice.It's interesting but not out of common.After all, how impressive could be a kitchen, even a royal one ?!There are a lot of different kind of cooking pots, most of them made by copper.Also you can watch a short film of royal dinner cooking process.

We visited Christiansborg’s Royal Kitchen in June 2024, one day after our visit to the Royal Reception Rooms in the same building. It provided for a good impression what is involved in cooking for a hundred or so VIP-guests and staff. We could borrow a floor plan once inside (not to take home), explaining what we saw and what it was used for.

As expected, we saw all sorts of pots and pans for a variety of meat and fish. Also, steaming vegetables and potatoes seemed practiced at the time, but I could not deduce whether that was common or special then. And, as could be expected, everything was there in abundance and large, logical given the enormous dinner table we saw in the palace yesterday.

Remarkably, the kitchen was not in a building separate from the main castle, very different from Potsdam (near Berlin) where I was earlier, where they were so afraid of setting the main building on fire that the kitchen was built at a safe distance. One can wonder how they kept the prepared food at a proper temperature, but that is a different story and less relevant here where distances to carry the prepared food were not overly large.

Our Copenhagen Discover Card was accepted without any hassle. There were no waiting times to enter the kitchen. Given that we got free access, I cannot comment on the value-for-money aspect of this visit.

While its a short trip through the royal kitchen, if you have the Copenhagen card (which I highly recommend getting as tourist) its free and fun look at what it looked like preparing meals for 250 guests of the royal family. I enjoyed the visit and recommend it to anyone who visits the palace since its on the same grounds and just around the corner from the reception rooms. The rows and rows of pots and pans are a sight to see. If you're not interested in food, cooking, or royal events it might not be for you, but I enjoyed the glimpse into this world.

Boasting one of Europe's largest collections of copper ware, it is well worth pausing here for a spell to marvel at the scale of preparation of Royal banquets.

Restored to its state in 1937 as it prepared a banquet to mark the silver jubilee of Christian X, it’s a great window onto the lives of the Royals.

In addition to the great shiny copper pots and pans, a marvellous black stove with multitudes of ovens is to be seen.

No longer use as a royal kitchen, but very nicely presented to show what kind of things would have been used, stored and cooked in there. A good video inside on how royal banquets are prepared in the modern age.

No labour saving devices in here. Loads of old pots and pans, mostly copper, knife polisher, ovens and hobs. A short video gives an insight into how things were done.
Worth a look as part of the combination ticket

Think you probably need to be into your cooking to really appreciate this place but we loved it. One of the attractions on our Copenhagen Card which makes for good value. Lots of pots, pans, utensils on show but also an insight into the royal kitchen. Worth spending 30 minutes to check out

I found the Royal kitchen fascinating with the various cook stations clearly identified and interesting information (in English) labelled throughout. It is furnished and equipped as it was in King Christian X's time and one can follow the preparations for a gala dinner marking the king's 25th Jubilee in 1937. In addition, there is a video in the Flower Room detailing the preparation of a current day royal dinner.
