Overview

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.

Really great place with lots of varying things to see and relatively compact. But you will be on your feet for a while so comfortable shoes are a must! The tickets are timed entry to make sure the smallish rooms dont get overcrowded. Prebook online...More

It was worth the price. We were hesitant at first as we have visited many castles. Usually the cost is not worth it, but this was fantastic. There were many rooms and it was easy to follow even without a map (the rooms were numbered)....More

This is a pretty little castle in the center did the city (close to the Botanical Garden). They have a huge green space for hanging out or picnicking. The lines to get in get long so book in advance if that’s something important to you!

Couple of things to watch out for. Firstly worth booking in advance as queues for ticket office can be long (means you can’t use your Copenhagen card though). they only allow very small handbags, and tickets are timed, so the later you go, the longer...More

At Rosenberg the guards start every day at 11:30 their 30 minutes walk to Amalianborg castle, where they do the changing of the guard ceremony - you can arrive here, and basically follow them to Amalianborg!

Magnificent grounds but the castle and jewels were just ok compared to others around the world. Very approachable and not too crowded. Interesting if you want to get up and personal with the king and his life.

A very eclectic collection of art and artifacts. You must buy a ticket to get a time slot to visit, but its worth the time. Three plus floors to explore and things you don't always see at other palaces or castle, like the "Privy". I...More

From the outside the castle appears rather small, and not that impressive, but there's a lot to see here! There are many beautiful artifacts on 4 floors (Ground, 1, 2, and the basement). The throne room with the silver lions is very impressive, and the...More
