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 enjoyed our visit to Rosenberg but it would have been so much better if each exhibit had a written explanation. We were given a small booklet but the information was very limited. We enjoyed seeing the Danish crown jewels and the thrones but many of the other rooms were very dark and we didn't know enough about each one.

Nice castle with a good exhibition of weapons and artifacts from the days it was still inhabited. Lovely gardens as well

We loved the interactive guided tour. If you have a mobile phone, you can connect yourself to their free wifi and there is an interactive guided tour. It takes you through each level of the castle, and each room. There is more info for points of interest in each of the rooms and even films to view and hear clocks... More

The castle is nice, but if you've seen Frederiksborg Castle and you're short on time, you can definitely skip this. For us, a short 30-45 minute visit was enough. There's also a nice park in front of the castle.

Much more intimate and less overwhelmingly grand than you might expect. Beautiful but not so jewel-box like that it seems impersonal. Oddly, many visitors seem to forget to tour the basement (a separate entrance from the tour of the main residence) and miss the crown jewels, which are truly spectacular.

Great site. Very interesting. This is very palatial. Not like most of our Scottish castles. Well worth a look.

Beautiful castle with stunning grounds. Closes quite early. You also need to pay to get in although we didn't realise that until we had already gone in...no one stopped us though! The jewels are amazing!

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.
