You can spend about two hours here, quite an interesting place. They've kept royal treasures including the Crown Jewels in the basement.

Pagaentry, majesty and jewels like you have never seen. If you appreciate traditional, opulent art and design, do not miss this castle. If you don't appreciate it, you will by the end of your visit.

We spent a couple hours here exploring the castle, the crown jewels, and the garden. The Rick Steves tour book on Scandinavia has a guided walk through the castle that we found beneficial.

Relatively cheap considering the prices in Copenhagen. You can see a beautiful palace and the prize jewels and crowns at the end of the tour.

As far as European cakes go, Rosenborg can't really compete, but it is still quite pleasant. The main attraction is that the royal crowns are there and they are beautiful. How they are placed is also very approachable and you get a full 360 degree view. The handout they give provides a one line description on each room, which is... More

What a great castle, situated on lovely grounds. The basement houses the Danish treasures including the crown jewels. The Long Hall is magnificent with the coronation thrones guarded by the life size lion statues.

We were doing a walking tour and came across the Castle by accident. The entrance to the gardens was lovely, set out in beautifull patterns and different types & colors of flowers- a great place just to sit and relax. The Castle itself was amazing, the history behind it was very interesting and the artifacts including the furniture, the glass,... More

This castle (fortress) is fantastic and was used by Shakespeare to write Hammlet. You can easily go by train from Copenhagen. It takes one and half hours by train to get there.

This castle is set in lovely grounds that is used as a park. Lots to see within the castle itself and for historians a great way to get to know the background of the royal family of Denmark. The crown jewels exhibition is very relaxed. A great way to spend some time sight seeing and combine with just sitting in... More

The gardens are lovely - roses and espaliered crabapples, and a "folly" that is beautifully set out. Inside the castle is interesting, if a little austere. Wonderful dining halls and grand rooms with beautiful furnishings.
