A Royal Affair


Come to the Kingdom of Denmark, and relive the story of love and madness, idealism and intrigue, set forth in the film,”A Royal Affair”. We meet the brilliantly bizzare young king and the young queen, and see the Danish court through the eyes of Dr. Struensee. It is a tour and a tale that will open the doors of palaces for you, and open your senses to the charms and secrets of the King’s Copenhagen.

Our knowledgable guides tell this tale amidst the Rokoko architecture of Christiansborg and the corridors of the Prince’s Palace. We delve into the narrow city streets to hear about the wild year of King Christian VII, before his meeting with Dr. Struensee – not least through his passion for fearsome ”Boot Katrine”. The story ends at New Square the King’s justice was meted out to unfortunate sinners.

It’s a fateful episode of the countrys history, and one of the great royal love scandals of Europe in the age of Kings.

The Standard 2 hour tour includes a visit to the Royal Museum in the Princes’ Palace.

The extended tour includes visits to the Royal Reception Rooms and Royal Stables. This is through special arrangement only,
