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.

Although a relatively small place there is plenty to see so give yourself a good couple of hours if you like your history. The silver lions and thrones on the top floor are very impressive and if you like looking at serious bling the treasury in the basement is not be to missed

My partner and I enjoyed our time at the castle. We wandered around the grounds before buying our ticket in to the castle to see the treasures and history. I love palaces and castles and thoroughly enjoyed our trip here. It was well organised and easy to get around without missing bits out. Would recommend if you like this sort... More

Nice surrounding gardens to walk through and the interior was well kept. No audio guide but the guidebook had quite a lot of information. Really cool to see the crown jewels and thrones! Well worth the 100DKK

This relatively small palace holds a wealth of different collections from porcelain to exquisite glass, jewellery, and more. There are not many signs explaining anything you see, so you will need a brochure or do your research beforehand. The craftsmanship of many of the articles displayed was for me what made them jewels, rather than the precious materials alone.

We were lucky to time our visit (arriving about 11.30 am) just before the changing of the guard as the troop all collect here before marching down to Fredericksberg Slot. The castle is full of interesting artefacts and fabulous rooms but the crown jewels in the basement are the main attraction. Don't miss it!

Worth the walk to. It's in a lovely park. Holds the Crown Jewels. Open to visit but only short hours. Surrounded by a duck pond and armed soldiers.

This is a moated castle not to be missed. It also was someone's home- royalty in this case. As royalty goes it is cosy or hugge. Give yourself plenty of time, we unfortunately only had 1/2 hour to see the treasury. Well worth the visit. Make sure you also spend some time in the Kings gardens next door. Beautifully done...

The castle is just like taken out of a fairytale and the surrounding gardens are very beautiful. The art collection inside the building is rich and impressive.

If you're going to see these three castles, I'd save Rosenborg for last since I found this to be the most visually stunning on the interior. I will be the first to admit that I'm more interested in admiring beautiful architecture and textiles and less in the history of these places, however.

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.
