The beautiful 400-year-old castle is situated in central Copenhagen's popular park, The King's Garden. The castle was built by one of the most famous Scandinavian kings, Christian IV. Today, the glory of the past can be experienced through the numerous art treasures of the previous kings and queens. Among the main attractions is the Great Hall with the coronation thrones and three life-size silver lions standing guard. The crown jewels and royal regalia sparkle behind the thick walls of the treasury beneath the castle.

I love to look at how people lived in the past and Rosenborg Castle allows you to see how the uber rich once lived. Don't expect Buckingham Palace. It is small and dark. Your Copenhagen Card works here but you must still line up for tickets. No backpacks or large purses allowed. There are coin operated lockers that return all... More

It is a very interesting place, lots of paintings to look at and the crown jewels are spectacular to see, lots of intricate detail. However, be prepared for inconsistent customer service. Some staff were very friendly and helpful but I also witnessed an extremely rude man working in the gift shop berate some people when they asked about the lockers.... More

A small and charming castle with a neat exhibition of the Crown Jewels and various rooms, furniture, paintings, collections, and miscellaneous artefacts of Danish royalty. You can't bring a bag in but there are coin-operated lockers (refundable) at the entrance to store your stuff, and photography is allowed all throughout the castle. There is nothing much to read in this... More

We had a great time at Rosenborg Castle the displays are laid out well and are easy to walk around. The crown jewels are stunning! The only frustrating thing about this place are the little number of toilet facilities available for such a large number of tourists. It meant we spent a long time queuing.

It was a lovely castle. We walked around the grounds at the castle, there were also gardens across the street, but we didn't have time to get there.

Housed within the Kings Garden the small castle looks impressive. The interiors and artefacts are also marvellous and historical. Worth visiting.

My sister, brother-in-law and I were in Copenhagen for 4 days, an visited the Rosenborg Castle. It was such a gorgeous day, we didn't go inside the castle, but the grounds are beautiful, and we had a delightful walk round. Next time we'll go round the castle!

If you can stand the crowds pay a visit. Wonderful objects dating back four centuries. The Crown Jewels are here as well.

Really enjoyed our visit. Lots to see and well presented. You can't take a bag inside and have to use a locker so give yourself time to organise this and collect at the end. There are additional lockers at the end of the shop. Loos are to the left of the shop across the grass. Don't miss the treasury. Lots... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
