Nice easy walk through the castle, especially the ground and 3rd floor. Disappointed the 2nd floor was closed due to lack of attendants available???? But the Treasury is worth the price of admission, especially the Crown Jewels.

This castle is very heavily decorated, perhaps baroque. It was a little much for me. We went into the castle and some of the rooms are absolutely amazing. We were not able to see the first floor (second American floor) due to the illness of some of the staff, but the first floor included very decorated studies, reception rooms, bed... More

Many artifacts from the history of the royal family. Beautiful items crafted from silver, porcelain, and ivory over the history of the royals. Museum attendants were helpful and very knowledgable. The Crown Jewels were divine and easy to view in display you can walk right up to.

Our visit to Rosenberg Slot was OK, especially as it wasn’t heaving with hordes of other tourists like us, but when you go in, you only get given a single page plan of the place and as you wander around there’s next to no information provided about either the palace itself or the exhibits – shame really, unfulfilled potential.

Really nice palace to visit, doesn't take long plus not at all costly. Crown jewels are fabulous (not a patch on ours of course) and worth talking to the attendant who can explain why the monarchs never get crowned or wear the crowns!

This enormous place is quite dark, but the display of crown jewels is fabulous. They ae very proud of their multi-media information options, but signs would have been easier to use and taken up less time than the cell phone option. On the other hand, the phone option means more languages are available to visitors.

We didn't go inside the castle, but even the grounds and garden around it are worth seeing. Not far from the botanical garden.

Beautiful location, loaded with history, the changing of the guard and royal jewels, what's not to like?

We had been to Copenhagen and the Rosenborg Castle on a previous visit but it was well worth a second look. The history contained in the first, second and third floors was quite comprehensive and interesting. The best, however, was the basement display of the Crown Jewels. An appealing display, well worth the visit.
