“Worthwhile visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

The castle and treasury is definitely worth a visit. There are many items to view but you need to hire or buy a small book to give you the history and general information. The guides in the rooms speak excellent English and are happy to talk about the history of the place. Just outside is the Kings garden which is lovely to stroll through. Good time to go would be sring or summer.

“A beautiful peaceful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Rosenborg Castle is located on beautiful park grounds that you definitely need to explore and enjoy when finished with the castle interior. Though the castle rooms are interesting and provide a nice history lesson, I enjoyed the treasures that lay below.
In the basement are the Royal crown jewels that are unbelievable. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to discover all the treasures in the basement. I actually enjoyed this section of the castle the best.

“Interesting sights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

The garden was lovely and so was the Treasury with some very interesting crowns and jewelry. If you have the Copenhagen Card, it is worth making some time for it (the actual Castle closes earlier than the Treasury so take this into consideration).

We were here on morning at the same time as the Queen of Denmark! State rooms are very splendid and the Crown Jewels very impressive.
