To see an exhibit featuring a collection of Danish crown jewels and regalia, head to Rosenborg Castle, one of the country's finest examples of Renaissance architecture. Originally constructed as King Christian IV's country house in 1606, the structure underwent several major expansion projects through 1624. The elegant castle sits in the middle of one of the city's liveliest parks and serves as a royal history museum. In addition to the famous crown jewels, which are displayed in the catacombs beneath the castle, the museum collection also includes a coronation carpet and the throne chair of Denmark.

  • Very beautiful castle! The chateau is set in a park that is free to walk through. Go to the castle to pay you a small contribution. Very beautiful inside. In the basement are super much. Beautiful jewelry on display. The rest of the Castle you can also see and walk you through different rooms.

  • Castle in a garden. The garden was designed symmetrically. There is a statue of Hans Christian Anderson in the Garden. The castle looks a quite small from the outside, not like Amalieborg. There are m...  read more »
  • Rosenborg Castle visit is to see the contrast between the famous current Danish design (sober, clear, sleek, minimalist...) and tastes of these same Danish in the previous centuries. The decorations of the Castle are extremely dark, overloaded with tables stacked one on the other, cluttered with furniture tarabiscotés... The Treasury is pretty impressive and allows you to wonder about the know-how of the Kings and Lords who were for centuries to make plugging away generations of poor men to be able to afford wreaths, jewelry and costumes of all kinds.

  • Really beautiful building inside and out! It's pretty dark inside as I'm guessing they want to protect all of the paintings. It's relatively small inside so shouldn't take you no more than an hour to do. Be careful of opening times during winter, they shut at 3pm most days which is pretty early for a tourist attraction. The gardens nearby in the grounds are lovely, I suspect it would be a nice walk in the summer! The top floor room is incredible and very regal.
  • Historic and cute castle. However the indoor exhibition is dark and lacks explanation. I'd almost suggest to follow a tour group for learning about its history. Some few items have QR codes attached, scan one and you'll be directed to further explanation; but really, why not just print that next to the QR code and then get rid of the QR code.
  • Absolutely wonderful small castle-palace! Really lovely place. I am not big fan of baroque but this is beautiful!
  • Very beautiful small castle in the center of Copenhagen, surrounded by a nice park and some gardens. The rooms inside are also beautiful and nicely decorated, with have some very detailed objects. Crown jewels look good, but not impressive.
  • Beautiful building and gardens with dense exhibition places inside. Great Medieval collections. If things have not changed, you need to pay an extra fee to take your camera inside the castle,although it is worth it.
