Changing of the Guard, Copenhagen

Wednesday, 7th December 2005 by

Here in Copenhagen, Denmark you can see loads of tourists hanging around in the middle of Amalienborg Palace, the winter home of the Danish royal family. Notice how they've formed a straight line on the south side? That's because this image was captured at around midday when tourists gather to watch the changing of the guard, which takes here every single day of the year.

The guard have to march through the streets of Copenhagen all the way from Rosenborg castle (where the Crown Jewels are kept), which has some rather pretty-looking landscaping.
