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.

Beautiful setting, with such a historic castle. We were so appreciative that we were able to both see and photograph the Crown Jewels. Can be busy so later in the day ( after the cruise ship groups), can be better.

We visited several castles while in Copenhagen. But, this may be my favorite. Learning about the Royals of the time is interesting even though their penchant to spend is sad. Loved the jewelry collection. The architecture is remarkable.

So many wonderful places in Copenhagen, but we were so glad we visited Rosenborg. Just a little culture-shock jolt getting a small insight into the Danes at the time of the freeing of the serfs. Took a photo of a painting of a galloping horse in a ridiculous pose so our horse-riding granddaughter could have a giggle.

This small compact palace gives you a great insight into the life style of the former royal families. The intimacy and compactness draw attention to the fact that this was just a little place to escape the main bustle of the palace. Lines can be long to get in.

I really liked looking at the royal jewelry collection. It was a lovely collection, not as big as the one in Tower of London, but lovely none the less. The garden was charming and a great place to have a picnic or just stroll through.

This castle is a good place to get a flavor of Danish royal history. The highlight is seeing the various treasures of the royal family, including the Crown Jewels. A deficit of the castle is that one has to buy a special booklet to understand the exhibits. The various displays have no explanatory labels or cards save the names of... More

My 7 yrs old granddaughter who is in the US was fascinated. Use the metro to get there. Afterwards go to israel Plad- many eateries there. You need... More

Just wonderful to see. One admission gets you into the castle and the crown jewels. Very picturesque and the inside has some amazing art and tapestries. I loved seeing it. And was lucky enough to see the changing if the guard which was also very interesting. The rose garden next door was also in bloom and fabulous.
