Unfortunately we didn't have time to go through the castle, which houses the royal jewellery collection. However, we did get to walk around the grounds of the castle and it was amazing - one of my favourite things in Copenhagen. The gardens are amazing, and there are beautiful swans everywhere. Very romantic and gorgeous!

As soon as you enter you receive a layout of the castle's room making it easy to navigate and identify what each room is. The rooms are decorated with different kings' possessions to give us a feel of how the room looked when that certain king resided here. My favorite rooms were the ornate bathroom with hundreds of tiles lining... More

This was definitely the best castle we visited in our European trip, sure there may be better but this is the best we seen, you actually get close to the displays, the dont look like copies and the place has a feel of character about it, set in a wonderful park, garden area, we were fortunate it was a beautiful...

This old castle is situated in a beautiful park. It used to be a royal residence in the past. Its architecture is great! The long room and the treasure are impressive.

The Rosenborg Castle is a real treasure, just as the treasure it stores in its basements - royal jewelry. The castle itself, in which you can have a tour by paying a decent entrance fee (approx. 10 €), is amazingly well kept and contain loads of interesting history. The park outside is also really nice, perfect for picnic!

I was really looking forward to taking a tour at Rosenburg Castle. Unfortunately they only offer audio tours. You can download an app on your phone and listen to it. I didn't bring earplugs but still purchased a ticket (adult 90 dkk). The castle itself is pompous and slightly over the top. But its enormous and you'll be thrilled in... More

The main attraction of the place is definitely the crown jewels in display and interesting the access and view of it is pretty nice and worth an experience. The information around the whole castle is pretty weak and you have to rely on your understanding to get you to the most of the stuff. The palace grounds are another impressive... More

One of those rare places that re-creates the aura of the time with furnishings and artwork reflecting how they lived. Dark, magical. Find a time with less crowds - spend minutes in a room as it was hundreds of years ago and feel the spirits!

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.
