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.

  • It is a castle or Palace really curious. All of the rooms are interesting, full of pictures and some objects from the period. It is very well preserved and you can visit almost everything, including the throne room and the House of the Danish Crown jewels. It is important to remember that every day on the parade ground at 11:30 is the Royal Guard, which is directed toward the Palace to perform the changing of the guard. It is curious to see. It is a must-see in Copenhagen. The price of the ticket are 110 DKK per person, but includes the entire route, Castle, and jewelry.

  • A pleasant walk, the baby could take bread to the ducks and fish in the pond. It has an area with many rosales

  • We really enjoyed visiting this historic building and seeing the rich history. Beautifully preserved and easy to look round. The Crown Jewels aren’t as stunning as the ones in the Tower of London (I o...  more »

  • Amazing castle. More modern than most I've visited though. Amazing artworks and statues. The throne room is a must see obviously. The crown jewels are then in the basement. Me and my friend debated whether they were the real ones or not, but we'll never really know. Handy maps in many languages available so easy to see where you are. The grounds are also stunning.
  • A great spot to spend the day. The park around is impressive and very well cared. Lots of friendly ducks children love to play with. Grass area is very big and it is allowed to step. A good place to practice sports around the stream. A great outdoors facility able to hold many people not having the feeling to be crowded
  • Decent place but long wait. Two sets of queue and each one has a logical halt between them. Has restroom (at no charge) and very homely cafe onsite ....good place for kids. I have also attached snaps of buses that come to the place. Very conveniently located and accessible from public transport.
  • One of the amazing castles in Copenhagen. Better to visit during spring as the garden will be filled with flowers. You easily get pictures of swans and ducks in and around castle. The entry seems a bit costly but you can have a good view of castle and the king's garden around
  • More of a small stately home than a proper castle. Disappointing content compared to others although the crown jewels were worth a look. Army guard the castle. Helpful lady at the ticket desk gave us 20DKK for the locker (as no bags allowed inside) as we didn't have any change (we returned it after).
