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.

In terms of the exhibits and the castle itself they are just the average European standard. However their staff are the worst I have ever seen in Denmark ! Just because the site has a lot of Chinese tour groups visiting and allegedly some of them gain entry without tickets therefore the staff there assumes all visitors of Asian appearances... More

I was reluctant to visit the castle as it cost 105Kr. but it was well worth it. You cannot take your bags with you (just a very small purse is allowed), so we kept our bags in the lockers provided (for 20Kr. which was returned later). We started in the basement looking at the guns & ammunition, the beautiful crown... More

Well worth the short train ride to the Castle. The audio tour is very good. We were there on a beautiful day so we strolled the gardens which are well maintained. Nothing can compare to Versailles, but this is an impressive Castle with a rich history,

The castle is in the walking distance from the main station of Copenhagen. The castle is worth visiting.

I actually rode my bike around this scenic site and walked through the park and enjoyed many sites along the way including King Square.

Small but rich castle but big in history and treasures. Very good conditions and excellent displays, I have see many castles in Denmark and Sweden in the 19 days 2016 Scandinavia tour, this is definitely one of the best I have visited. yes, it get busy in weekends and peak season but still worth seeing it. Set up in a... More

Unfortunately my friends and I couldn't visit the inside because we arrived a bit after 4p.m., the closing time. We took a tour of the garden which is really suggestive and very well looked after. A part of the garden is reserved to roses: here lots of roses of every color have beel placed close to each other in a... More

We did not enter the Rosenberg Castle as we missed the open time. Yet the garden outside was extremely beautiful. We walked down in between the plants and lied on the grass to look up at the beautiful sky. It was so relaxing and full with great pleasure.

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.
