The Palace is fascinating for the rooms themselves, giving an insight into the living conditions of the privileged from previous centuries. When you add the contents, from furniture to art work, to the armoury and the treasury, it becomes difficult to take it all in - there aren't just cases of ivory and amber, there are rooms, and everything else...

Excellent castle restoration. Plenty go wonderful pieces. I was particularly impressed by the clocks. The throne room is very special. A visit to the treasury to see the Crown Jewels is worth the visit. When combined with beautiful grounds make Rosenborg palace a must see.

Spent around 1 hour 30 mins here and really enjoyed it. Not too big, plenty to see and for £10 very reasonable.

I just came home from exploring this lovely castle with my ten year old son. It was a great experience! There is just enough castle for him and just enough history and furniture for me. The treasury with the crowns and jewels and things like that were fun for both of us. The guard in the treasury was sweet enough... More

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
