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 castle was beautiful but they don't let you take in your purse. They have lockers there, you insert 20 Kronen, put your stuff in and take the key. We thought it would be safe. WRONG!!!!! We didn't realize until hours later that someone broke into it, took my wallet out of my purse and also took a money holder from my friends backpack. I didn't think about taking my wallet/change purse with me. Very frustrating.We had to cancel credit cards. WHAT A PAIN!!!!!!
  • Despite the dreary weather outside, inside the palace was gorgeous! So many antiquities to look over and learn about. Would highly recommend if you have a few hours to spare, as there is much to see in this beautiful collection.
  • Fantastic collection of opulent items from royalty. Still guarded by solders and also there is an amazing collection of weapons in the basement. Also a beautiful place grounds with a park and garden. Go check it out!
  • Must see when in Copenhagen. After taking a walking tour and hearing a little history about it and a few tips on why certain things are where they are, visiting the castle made it all the more special. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit through the castle.
  • Though a slight walk from the other main attractions, highly recommend seeing this place. Inside is gorgeous with plenty of things to admire. Vault is even more interesting with the crown jewels, etc.
