Since 1994, the Danish Radio’s National Chamber Orchestra has held annual castle concerts in Ledreborg Park. As a rule of thumb the concerts are held on the 3rd weekend of August.
Due to the shape and topography of the park as a valley, the acoustics are excellent. For families and friends alike it has become a tradition to go to the concerts at Ledreborg Concert.

11 TIPS TO GET THE BEST OUT OF THE CONCERTS.
To avoid queues at the Amalienborg gate, we have arranged an official meeting area just beside the car park at the end of Ledreborg avenue, in front of the entrance. A large sign indicates the meeting point, which is also close to the bus stop.
REMEMBER TO PICK-UP YOUR PICNIC BASKET – AVOID A DETOUR!
When the gates open, we understand that people are in a hurry to find a perfect spot in the park. But if you have purchased a pre-ordered picnic basket, please remember to pick it up at the kitchen tent on the way down to the concert site. You will find the Kitchen tent along the path, around 100 meters after you pass the entrance at the Amalieborg gate.
NOTE: If you have you already purchased a ticket but would like to order a picnic basket it can be purchased by contacting DR Shop (Tel. 35 20 62 62) 3 days before the first concert.
WITHOUT TABLES AND CHAIRS
This year we have booked an area directly in front of the stage where only picnics on rugs is permitted – no tables and chairs please. The area is reserved for people with or without food baskets but you are allowed to take low beach chairs. We ask everyone with tables and traditional chairs not to use enter the area, which is marked on the map and which is cordoned off with red and white bands.
YOU CAN PURCHASE DRINKS AT THE CONCERT.
No form of beverage can be brought into the concert, as stipulated on the ticket. You can purchase drinks and snacks at the concert. We also provide free drinking water. There are water taps on both sides of the stage. See the location on the map.
Dogs and other animals have are not allowed
TRANSPORT FOR DISABLED
We do our best to provide wheelchair accessibility. From 11 a.m. on both concert days special transport for disabled persons departing at regular intervals from the parking spot near the Amalienborg gate is available. Toilets for the disabled are situated in the toilet area on the left hand side of the stage and in the toilet area at the bottom of the park.
If disaster strikes, we have in co-operation with Event Safety established an emergency team, where first aid is provided. The location of the first aid station is shown on the map. If you are in need of first aid please contact the Danish Radio Concert personnel. Be sure to give a brief description of your ailment.
SECURITY AND A GOOD EXPERIENCE FOR ALL
Give space – and show respect. For security reasons we ask that you please keep all walkways free. Vehicle access routes are marked with signs, which must also be kept free for emergency exits at all times. Use of open fires such as disposable barbecues is strictly prohibited. Once the concert begins we ask that all sun parasols are folded down.
PLEASE CLEAR UP AFTER YOURSELF AND YOUR PARTY
There are rubbish bins located several areas. We encourage everyone to use them, so the area continues to be kept nice and clean.
GETTING HOME SAFELY
When the concert ends, almost everyone is thinking about heading home. But please remember, that several thousand people are gathered in a relatively small area. Why wait in a queue, when you could be relaxing with your family and friends in Ledreborg’s spectacular baroque park .
