There are guests suites at Amalienborg as well as at Fredensborg. There the most important guests will stay.
Most staff members will probably have to settle with a hotelroom somewhere or more modest accommodation in one of the palaces.

Hairdresser, stylists and advisors must be considered staff.
Security is the responsibillity of the Danish police even though some high profile guests maintain their own security cordon.

According to international guidelines. A delegation at an official statevisit is defined as twenty persons. They will be fed, accommodated and cared for at the expense of the host nation. The visiting nation will have to foot the bill for more than twenty members. (We learned that little detail in the documentary of the DRF behind the scenes).

However, it's more likely that the NRF and SRF only brought with them a minimum of staff. My estimation is as follows:
Perhaps a senior court member.
A couple of adjutants.
A couple of LiWs or someone equivalent to that.
Two to four bodyguards.
A valet.
A chambermaid.
A hairdresser/stylist.

I have visited Christian VII. Palais when i was in Copenhagen some years ago. it is the one which is used for official representation and has guestrooms. There are guided tours during the Summer Months. It is really beautful inside.
Sometimes there are also guided Tours through Christian VIII. Paialis and there is also the Amalienborg Museum in it.
Chritian IX. and Frederik VIII. Palais can not be visited as it are the Residences of the Royal Couple and the Crown Princely Couple.

A Google view of Amalienborg and surroundings, with some additional details:
Amalienborg and surroundings - Kopi.JPG - File Shared from Box - Free Online File Storage

A more detailed view with additional info: http://www.box.com/s/m7qm4hyqp1njuurvdlc9

(You should know the drill by now. Always go full screen first, allowing the file a few seconds to load, then use the slider to zoom in).

(Perhaps a moderator will be so kind and delete the previous post?)

Updated floorplans, part one.

Mezzanin, the private apartment of M&F.
The floor with the small row of windows, right beneath the roof.
This is a screencap from a documentary, hence the poor quality.

Floorplan - Mezzanin - copy 2.jpg - File Shared from Box - Free Online File Storage
1: (Can't remember and can't read it).
2: Nanny.
3: Children's bedroom.
4: Children's bedroom.
5: Frederik's dressing room.
6: M&F's bedroom.
7: Mary's dressing room.
8: (Can't remember and can't read it).
9: Mending room for the chambermaid.
- There are two rooms to the lower left, which are presumably guests rooms for the most personal friends and family.

There are additional guestrooms upstairs, and perhaps Christian and Isabella now have their rooms up there as well?
Frederik and Joachim lived in the "attic" as children and young. - They sometimes climbed out on the roof, freaking out their nanny, Else Pedersen.

Updated floorplans, part two.

(For this, I'll need a bit of help and if someone will provide more details, please do so ).
(Some editing has already taken place, thanks to FasterB ).

The two lower (official) floors of M&F's residence. floorplan.jpg - File Shared from Box - Free Online File Storage

We start at the first floor:
1: Main staircase. Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsparrets nye Amalienborg
2: Meeting room. With the psycedelic ceiling. Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsparrets nye Amalienborg
3: Havesal = Garden Room. http://www.billedbladet.dk/Kongelige...%20-%2012.aspx
4: Butler's pantry, with the painting of Bambi being shot. Note the foodlift from the basement. Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsparrets nye Amalienborg
5: Trongemak. Music and reading. - http://i2-images4.tv2net.dk/s/26/196...718414cef.jpeg
6: The terrace.
7: Waiting room, presumably with a secretary.
8: Mary's office. - The Erik Frandsen painting behind her desk. http://imageupper.com/i/?S0200010060...28429291736794
9: Riddersal = Knights Hall/Great Hall. Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsparrets nye Amalienborg And furnished? http://imageupper.com/i/?S0200010010...85180712544851
10: (Don't know).
11: The private dining room. Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsparrets nye Amalienborg
12: M&F's private kitchen. (The working kitchen's are located in the basement). http://www.purepeople.com/media/le-p...ncesse_m772519
13: M&F's private and very light living room.
14: The day-to-day staircase with the lamps, and toilets. Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsparrets nye Amalienborg

Ground floor:
15: Main entrance.
16: Entrance hall and presumably wardrobe for official guests.
17: Hall.
18: Secretaries.
19: Basically a waiting room, before going to see Frederik. With adjutant?
20: Gobelinsal = Hall of Tapestries. http://www.billedbladet.dk/Kongelige...%20-%2025.aspx
21: Vestibule. Designed as an impressive and stylish little walk to Frederik's office. - The world map painting. Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsparrets nye Amalienborg
22: (Can't remember).
23: Frederik's office. Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsparrets nye Amalienborg
24: The grand dining room. With the chandaliers and mirrors. Notice the pantry to the right, with stairs down to the kitchen. Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsparrets nye Amalienborg
25: Service entrance.
26: PET on duty and portner?
27: Presumably an additional guest room, or more likely accomodation for senior staff. Copy-room, daily depot for secretaries, coffee room for personal staff, secretaries and so on.

- As you can tell there are a couple of blanks.
I would be happy if someone will add details about the function of some of the rooms, and not least the artwork in those room. - I could dig it up myself, but I'm too lazy.

thank you muhler, very interesting. from what I see from the birthday-pictures of the twins, I guess they removed the wall between the private kitchen and the dining room in order to have an open space as it is usual today in modern houses.

IIRC then the photo is from Havesalen /The Garden Room, because this one is from Gobelinsalen...

There must have been a mixup of the captions...

You're a treasure, FasterB

Now, you've been there. Can you, or someone else, identify the room Mary is in in this pic: Image Upper.com - Free Image Hosting - View Image
Grey walls. Which means that it is not Trongemakket.

And this: http://imageupper.com/i/?S0200010060...28429291736794
Grey walls? Mirrors, chandeliers.

Now, need good pics for room #22, M&F's kitchen and if possible living room.

My pleasure Justina & Patra

My best guess is that they are from Riddersalen
It looks like the couch from this photo from Berlingske - Thanks to member Roskilde

PS Du har postet samme billede to gange, er det meningen?

Fixed.
Can't help it, you know. My chromosomes prevents me from multi-tasking.

And that's why I have you to help, FasterB

It can´t be the music/reading room, ´cause that room has purple walls and don´t have the straight lines on the "pillars"

Do the Crown Prince Couple live in Amalienborg all year round or do they move to another castle for the summer? And how long do they stay there?

This is partially correct. They lived at Fredensborg from 2004 until the winter of 2010 (before the birth of the twins). The now live full time at Frederik VIII's palace at Amalienborg.

I thought they also kept the Fredensborg residence (Chancellory House) and divide their time....Especially as there are a lot of outdoor opportunities for the children at Fredensborg property.

I think they kept it, but not using like in previous years. Queen and P Henrik can switch the palaces but for family with 4 young children (2 in school) it would be totally unreasonable.

Agree.

Especially as long as the twins are so young.

As it is now, M&F can walk up the stairs from their office if the twins need some attention. It's simply more convenient than having the twins at Fredensborg and M&F at work in Copenhagen, an hour away.

But in a couple of years when the twins start in the nursery, I think we will see M&F use Kancellihuset as a regular sommer/weekend-retreat. After all it's a great place for the children.

Yes, what outdoor opportunities does Amelienborg Palace have for the kids?
