The elegant castle sits in the middle of one of the city's liveliest parks and serves as a royal history museum.

  • If you're into 1500-1800 history and art, beautiful plates, paintings, vases, etc. and some crown jewels then this is the place to go. It's in Kongens Have (really worth a visit in itself) and is a wo...  more »
  • One of the best-preserved palaces we've seen. Full of furniture, works of art and jewelry. They offer you free wifi door to remove entries on the internet at the moment, very comfortable. It's not cheap, but nothing is cheap in copenhagen.

  • 4/10/2017 This is one of the castles in the city of Copenhagen that has a museum of the crown jewel. It's pretty small compared to the other castles around the area. The adjacent garden/park is beautiful and nice to just take a stroll and enjoy the greenery. Admission is included in the Copenhagen card and the museum has alot of really cool jewelry, shiny stuff. Oh I love shiny stuff. The castle is very cool to look at, it has the classic Renaissance structure with lots of rooms, hallways and corridors. It would be really fun to play hide and go seek here. There was a room with an extensive collection of swords, I'm sure they are priceless. Loved this place, must visit when in Copenhagen!
  • Interesting historic castle on beautiful grounds in central Copenhagen. Tour the castle then visit the vault to see arms and gorgeous gems! There is an audio guide you can download (which wasn't working when we visited, unfortunately). Children really enjoyed visiting, and there is enough to see to keep 6 and 7-year-old children engaged.
  • One of the most well kept palaces that I’ve seen. It has some really neat artifacts and history. It’s not extremely huge but if you like history and excess opulence then you should definitely go.
  • Firstly, as a side note, Copenhagen's number one tourist attraction (on trip advisor) closes at 2pm on a Sunday. That's 2 in the afternoon if you are in any doubt. A great place to spend an hour or two, however, if you've been to an equivalent in any of Europe's other big cities there is not a lot to knock your socks off...
  • Historically significant palace in Copenhagen. You can see the crown jewels and other historical antique items. You can easily spend half a day here, but a quick overview is going to take around an hour. There is student discount.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
