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.

The crown jewels are not the the only the things that glitter with gold in this castle - everything seems to be sumptuously decorated! I loved seeing the amazing handicrafts and little trinkets. Look out for a 20% discount on Minicards that can be found hanging at hotels or that you can download as an app. Also if you're interested... More

It's nice, but small. I enjoyed it though, especially liked the garden with the small river and the little bridge after I came out of the treasury. You can just walk in here, you don't need to buy a ticket for the castle if this is all you want to see.

A beautiful castle set in a huge park in the middle of the city, This castle gives you a history of the royal family from the c.1700 to c.1900. As you walk through the rooms each one is decorated as it would have been by that king, in chronological order. It's a very interesting way of arranging it and their... More

First stop this morning was Rosenborgg Castle and a great way to start our day. we entered through the Kings gardens which was a bonus for me..lovely shaped hedges of lavender and privet and fabulous roses. We started with the vaulted jewel section in the basement. I really had to wonder if those huge diamonds in the necklace and earrings... More

Very interesting place to visit, lots of furniture, paintings and displays of a few hundred years worth of the royal collections over 3 floors. Additionally the basement area has collections of weapons, amazingly carved ivory objects, and lots of other fascinating things including the crown jewels. If it's a cold day, keep your hat and gloves on it's cold inside!

I was walking in the gardens and loved the gardens enough not to really care if I could get into the palace. I'm sure that the gardens would be beautiful during spring and summer.
