Owner description: 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.

Reviewed June 4, 2014

This was the royal residence before Amalienborg Palace. Well it's not a castle by British standards. It's more of a large old brick house with turret/spirals! The insides were very dark, mixture of gothic/baroque style. Completely different to Amalienborg Palace. Low ceilings and lots of painted wood, gold, black and some of the weirdest choices of decor I thought in some cases. Quite interesting and nice change from glass, white, ikea.

There is an line written description to walk you through the rooms and free wifi if you have smart device, there is also audio but bring some ear plugs for your device.

Good thing is you're allowed to take photos.

If you're lucky (and queen is in residence at Amalienborg Palace, you'll see the changing of the guards here at 11.30am

Note if you have a backpack or hand bigger than about 20cm by 15cm you need to leave on the locker. You'll need a 20 krone coin for the locker.

“One of the better sites to see”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

We had to make a decision how to spend our 36 hours in Copenhagen and included this site. The day was lovely, so the gardens and parks were being enjoyed by locals. You are not allowed to bring a backpack, even a small one into the castle, so be prepared to check it in a small locker.

The castle itself represents a very wealthy, rather decadent monarchy. The collections are very interesting. We would have liked to also go to the National Museum but it is closed on Monday.

“Wow what a treasure!”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

The artifacts, paintings, silver, goldsmithing and jewellery are simply stunning. The level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is remarkable for its period.

“Crown Jewels”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

It is difficult to find as I expected to see a ton of land with a castle on the hill and this one was in the middle of a city block! Beautiful gardens and the castle provided a glimpse into Danish history. The Crown Jewels were beautiful!

“Beautiful Castle ! stunning gardens !”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

beautiful castle, though not the largest by any standards, but every aspect of it is worth looking at. inside the crown jewels as well as some other artifacts are housed.

The gardens are stunning! worth spending hours in if the temperature permits. well worth a visit.
