It's a cool looking building, they have army guards (not the classic guards you'd hope), decent grounds: garden (only nice if it's in bloom), lots of grass, a nice pond. It's a cool place to go, i'd probly tell people to check it out, but don't go out of your way for it unless you really want to.

If you're into history this is a must see in Copenhagen. Rosenborg is top of Danish Renaissance and full of furniture, jewelry and art. After your visit you can take a stroll through the park. You can buy coffee, ice creams and soft drinks. There is a great play ground for kids.

the castle is in fantastic shape and gives you an indication of Danish Royal History. The crown jewels are on exhibition. the park beside the castle is very famous in summer for gatherings. Danes like to meet up and bbq in Kongs Have as it is called.

Worth it for Christian IV's bed caps: red velvet, with lace "crown" around. Less keen on the clothes he died in, still showing the bloodstains. The attendants are chatty and knowledgeable; I liked the story of Christian VII, who used to go round Copenhagen giving his Order of the Elephant to people he liked. Ministers had difficulty getting it back,... More

The castle houses a rich collection of objects belonging to the Danish royals. The tour provides a glimpse of what life was like in the Danish court years ago. The pieces are stunningly beautiful, especially the tapestries and porcelains. It well worth the visit.

Copenhagen surprised me with all its castles and amazing architecture. We came through the northside park, with its maze and statuary and first views of Rosenborg. As we walked around the building to the entrance, a military parade of some sort was going on, so that just made it a little more fun to be there! The castle has some... More

We came here earlier in our stay but it was closed because the Queen had a function so we tried back later in the week. We tour the open rooms and were able to see the Crown Jewels in their full splendor and glory. The docents were very helpful in explaining anything to do with the history of a particular... More

Rosenberg Castle is not too far from the Round Tower. The gardens are very nice and well kept. Pack a picnic especially if traveling with kids.

A nice building set in some really well kept park land, the gardens were beautifully maintained. The inside of the castle was worth seeing, some really lavish rooms. The crown jewels were also very impressive. I would recommend a visit when in Copenhagen. We managed to see the guards marching out of the neighbouring barracks when we left, also worth... More
