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.

Beautiful mid sized castle which is very well maintained and a must view ! The royal court room and other state rooms are fantastic but the Crown Jewels of Denmark are by far it's most spectacular part . They also sell 20 DKK coins when you buy the ticket as they are needed for the locker to place your rucksack... More

....instead just include as part of a broader walk around town. Set at the back of the very nice and peaceful Kongens Have gardens. Not I did not go inside as strolling around for a few pictures was enough for me.

This is a smallish castle, quite dark in parts, impressive with unique exhibits like blood stained coat, glass and porcelain and a small royal toilet,

Located close to Geographical museum and the Hans Christian Anderson statue, this is a must see attraction in the city. Its in the middle of well maintained gardens which is a very relaxing area to be in.

Well worth the price of admission. The basement houses the crown jewels including the heavy jeweled coronation crowns. There are 3 other floors of pictures, gorgeous period furniture and memorabilia of Kings & Queens of Denmark. The Knight's Hall is most impressive.

The building is beautiful. The Crown jewels were fascinating. The castle had lots of paintings, but really fascinating to see it all.

I think this was the first time I saw renaissance castle with such an interior. If you are in Copenhagen it would be a pitty not to visit it!!! Very nice piece of Danish history. Splendid throne room, lovely salons and amazing coronation jewels. One of the best attractions 👍🏻

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.
