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.

This is a small but beautiful castle that houses the treasury and a lot of royal antiques. The treasury itself makes the (low!) cost of admission worth it. It's easy to get to via the Hop On Hop Off bus (great way to see the city quickly to see what you'd like to do). Photos are allowed, so be sure... More

I especially loved visiting the Rosenborg Castle. You have the freedom to explore the castle without security guards at every corner watching you like a hawk! The crown jewels, located in the treasury are also amazing to view and again, you can walk around and take your time to view them. The castle is not gigantic so the visit won't... More

Spent a few hours here first seeing the treasures etc then went above ground to visit the castle very interesting guides alot of knowledge they are ready to impart. If you can they had a philosphy that no building should be perfect so the architect left 3 deliberate mistakes see if you can find them.

Tells you about the heritage of Denmark, please do NOT forget to visit the basement, all the treasures are there. As it is far away from the city center, we went there using the Hop ON Hop Off Bus. It got a very good garden, Lots of photos are waiting to be taken.

This castle is small and in the middle of the city, it's easy to find and not expensive. The rooms are adorned with royal antiques and they have a real lived in feel. You are welcome to take photos which is very unusual. They also have QR codes on some of the displays to get more info about them. The... More

This was my first stop in Copenhagen and it got my visit off on the right foot. I did not go into the castle but did go on a stroll through the lush gardens, around the moat, and through the private rose gardens. Beautiful and relaxing.

I heard about the tapestries in the Castle and was lucky enough to see all of them. Such vibrant work. The Royal Family was on holiday. The art workin the Castle was interesting and the structure itself was impressive.
