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.

  • The rooms in the castle are very well done as is the brochure explaining most of it. the Treasury in the basement is amazing. Well worth the price of admission. the gardens are lovely too.

  • It is set in the heart of the city on vast grounds, which makes it a good public space, for the locals occasionally. The castle is a beautiful Danish Renaissance architecture, but is not the grandest in it's size, yet it has a rich collection of treasures from history. It was a fantasy to see all the various clocks of the time, orchestra, wardrobes, glass room, porcelain room, beautiful pieces carved with amber and ivory, wine from the century, weapons, the crown, etc.. For tourists who love history, should visit the Rosenborg castle, especially when it's so easy to reach.
  • Small yet beautiful and historic castle in Copenhagen. Set in a spacious, green park with tree-lined pathways and a massive rose garden. The moat is filled with giant carp. So many you can pet them. The castle entrance is protected by armed soldiers so don’t do anything stupid.😎 Nice place to get away from the busy shopping area which is only blocks away. Has good washroom facilities. Really nice place to walk around and stop to smell the roses and check out the old statues from Denmark’s history.
  • I wish I had known in advance what was in the basement. I would have organized my time differently and spent half of it there! Not that the rest of the castle is not worth the visit, but the regalia and the treasures are among the most beautiful items I've ever seen and no picture will ever do them justice. I'd go back just for the sake of admiring the emerald set again.
  • Wonderful place! Full of magic... you can see how in the past the Royals were used to live their luxury life and then the rooms of the Jewellery was so GORGEOUS! I couldn't stop taking pics. Highly recommended.
  • The castle is a very impressive building set in the Kings Garden. Inside there are rare antiquities from the reign of the monarchs dating back up to 400 years. A very informative visit which gave a lot of insight into the history of the Royal family.
