We enjoyed a very nice visit and did the audio tour. My wife likes the detail and there is plenty of it. You can see this in one hour or three depending on your level of interest.

I wasn't expecting to be impressed but was I wrong. So much history and so many treasures and artifacts. Each room had something special to see. Definitely a good place to see. The crown jewels were amazing too!

Rosenborg is a great place to see a history of royalty throughout the years. Each room or section of the castle has artifacts, art, and treasures from the reins of the various kings.

Christian the 4th built this palace to his taste. It shows what was considered "the thing" at the time. Wow! So much to take in and admire. Or at least admire wirth the eyes of its time.

Walked here from Tivoli Hotel ( 45 mins or so) on a cold day. Well worth a visit- some lovely paintings and some interesting clocks to view.

The home of the Danish Crown Jewels and The famous King Christian's Crown. Upstairs is a collection of paintings dating back to 1600 and is also home to a throne carved from narwhal tusk!
