The beautiful 400-year-old castle is situated in central Copenhagen's popular park, The King's Garden. The castle was built by one of the most famous Scandinavian kings, Christian IV. Today, the glory of the past can be experienced through the numerous art treasures of the previous kings and queens. Among the main attractions is the Great Hall with the coronation thrones and three life-size silver lions standing guard. The crown jewels and royal regalia sparkle behind the thick walls of the treasury beneath the castle.

Not to miss the spring flowers and gardens!

The spring flowers and gardens which set off the Rosenborg Castle are spectacular. There are some uneven walkways, so guests with mobility challenges may want to plan for this.

145 DKK for dual entry to the castle and Amalienborg Slot was good value for money. Make sure you have enough time for both and aim to finish the last visit at 3pm as cafe and shop may be shut. Seeing both is a good contrast in styles. Distance between the two sites is close to twenty minutes. Both are... More

Rosenborg is the home of the Danish Crown Jewels and a large amount of militaria from Danish history. The entire complex (Basement, Ground, 1st and 2nd floors can be explored fully in a little over an hour. The rooms are darker (both in design and decor) than other palaces, so it seems a bit more subdued. The throne room is... More

Freezing temperature, but still had to queue for our tickets. Very popular & deservedly so. Impressive displays from the kings of Denmark, including the Crown Jewels.

There are many beautiful castles throughout Denmark. This is one of the prettiest. Stand in the gardens and imagine the pomp and splendour if bygone eras. It's a place of peace and tranquility.

We enjoyed an afternoon here. Well organized with lots of information both in the booklet and from the staff located throughout. The clocks are fascinating, as was the mechanical orchestra. Tour of the treasury (weapons, crowns and jewels) was a highlight for the kids. The glass and pottery collections in the closets beside then throne room are really something.

A worthwhile visit coupled with the Maritime museum in Helsingor. For Shakespeare lovers with 400 years on from his death, this will be a cool place to visit in 2016. While it is cold and sparsely laid out, the use of audio through wifi to your phone makes this a great place to learn about the real setting of Hamlet.... More

This was on our itinerary for day one of a three day break. Standing in a city park five minutes from our hotel, The Admiral, we had no real expectations. Visiting in February the attraction was quiet and we had plenty of space and time to wander around the three floors. This place can be described only as a riot.... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
