Although this palace is on the darker side, it is well worth the visit, and I definitely encourage the combination ticket with Amielienborg Palace. The two castles combined cover generations and give you a good overview of the Danish Monarchy-and a crash course in Danish history. I was able to do that with summer hours, not sure if it's doable... More

East to find and great to walk round. Good views all around it. Not far from the Amielienborg Palace.

We checked the site and a pamphlet before we set out - both of which said the castle is open till 5 pm - got there at 3:45, only to find a sign that says the castle is only open 10-2 pm Sunday through Tuesday. We were not the only ones there with incorrect information. We will try again tomorrow.... More

A tourist facility on anyone's list but for winter visits note the opening times of 10 - 2pm ... allow plenty of time to wander ... I wouldn't suggest this is a place for a quick run round visit!

This is a beautiful historic castle. The nature of the architecture is not as large and ornate as some of other royal castles so some areas can be quite dark and dingy due to the small windows, but we found this interesting rather than disappointing. The armoury and crown jewels were also well worth a visit.

Rosenborg Castle, build between 1604 and 1634, is one of the most exquisite royal collections on this planet. Enter the castle and walk from 1615 through the 1700's and discover unique details of royal furnishing and collecting. finish your tour with the lavish crown jewels in the treasury below the castle. Next door is The King's Garden where people stroll... More

My wife and I made the hour train journey from Copenhagen Central Station (13 kroner each for a 24 hour all zone train and bus pass) to Helsingor so that we could visit Rosenborg Castle, whilst at the same time see some of the countryside outside Copenhagen during our 3 day visit. This is also a much more relaxing and... More

Visiting this castle, and going inside to look at all of the treasures is well worth it. You really get a close up look at all of the jewels, crowns, household items and the like. It is a close up view of the historical artifacts of Denmark. The landscape is beautiful and watching the guard change was equally worth seeing.... More

It is in the center of Copenhagen, looking as if it is part of a movie. But it is very real : built a s a sommerresidens for the king Chr 4, more than 400 yrs ago. Filled with artefacts in all kinds. Ask the guards about history, they know a lot and willingly, they will tell you tales.

I've only visited the outside and the gardens of this estate, so i can't really speak about the museum and all that's inside, but the landscape is beautiful and so is the building. Also if you simply visit the grounds you won't have to pay. The gardens are connected to the castle ground by a bridge but once crossing it... More
