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.

We arrived too late in the day to enter the castle but the grounds and the extraordinary exterior of the castle were worth the walk. Surrounded by a moat and 'guarded' by low fortifications, the castle rises above the lowlands in solitary splendor. The surrounding lands are beautiful, with tree lined allees connecting fields, flower-filled gardens and playgrounds. Our three... More

Lovely castle and surroundings, gardens, lakes, etc. Definitely worth a visit, as it is lovely place to walk around and do some people watching. We didn't go inside so can't comment on the inside.

Coming from the US we don't have castles like this with such history. Truly enjoyed seeing the Crown Jewels and throne room. The grounds around the castle are so beautiful and a joy to walk through.

The tour of the castle is great to see how the Danish royalty lived through the centuries. Upstairs is the "Knights Hall" with the coronation chairs and huge tapestries. Down in the treasury are the crown jewels amongst other precious items!

we were in a hotel very near to the castle. we used our Copenhagen Card to get in so it didn't cost us anything. be aware that if you have a biggish bag, or rucksack you will have to put them in a locker. the guides are very strict about this. the castle is well worth a visit. the crown... More

The architecture is great, and inside the building is interesting, but forgettable. Interesting artifacts inside, but honestly nothing all that special. Watch your head on the way into the main castle also and on the way out, low doorways for tall people

This is the only castle we visited, so I can't compare it to the other ones! The castle is nice and the garden very lush. My daughters 7 and 11, got bored towards the end. Make sure you visit the basement to see the Treasury and the Jewels.

This is a smallish castle with lovely gardens called "the Kings gardens." The changing of the guards starts here. A must stop to stroll through the gardens.

Definitely plan for at least 3 hours - 2 for the main section and another 1 for the lower Treasury. You have to leave backpacks in a locker, but surprising you can take pictures anywhere and with flash.

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.
