Copenhagen has a few castles but this is the one you must see. It is beautiful and there is lots to see including the crown jewels.

The signs should be bigger about not touching the statues and any other things that the employees dont wont you to do, they were constantly getting loud about this. The highlights were definitely the Crown Jewels and the Throne Room on the top floor with the magnificent Tapestries and the lions. It is a beautiful castle and worthwhile seeing ...only... More

A self-guided tour through the castle and treasury. We opted not to buy the guidebook, but wish we had. The single sheet of paper with the map of the castle and brief explanations of the rooms was not quite adequate. The palace rooms, the furnishings, the silver and porcelain are excellent. The best thing is that pictures are allowed everywhere... More

We had the misfortune to hit Copenhagen on a Monday, when all the major museums are closed and the royal residences are pretty much the only game in town. Fortunately, the Rosenborg Castle is interesting for its eclectic collections (including a smattering of erotica), connection to Christian IV, and especially the crown jewels. The grounds were lovely as well, and... More

Lots of history, surrounded by a beautiful garden. The museum closes at 4 pm and one has to be very well organized to see it all.

Now a museum dedicated to the royal family of Denmark, this small castle's three floors are full of paintings, furniture, dishes, clocks, the crown jewels and more. There's even the king's special toilet, with it's Delft covering the walls. Talk about excess!

Great castle/palace to look through. Great antiques and the treasury is such an eye opener. The Crown Jewels are just amazing. The gardens are very nice to walk around in or sit and look at the gorgeous trees. Staff are super friendly and very knowledgable. Price to get in is very fair.

Rosenborg castle is beautiful, but bear in mind that this is a summer house for royal family (or was a summer house), so is not very big and rooms are not very spacy. This is ok, unless there is 20 people in hte room in the same time trying to look around. Using lookers is compulsory. There is several other... More

This was an interesting castle to walk through, full of beautiful ceilings, tapestries, thrones, paintings and adornments, but for us the Treasury was the most fascinating part to see -- the royal jewels, the crowns, swords and "costume" jewelry were breathtaking and well presented. The grounds as well were lovely and worth a walk through.
