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.

    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!!!!!!

    For anyone interested in history this is well worth a visit... An amazing amount of things to see - could easily have spent twice as long. Staff are very knowledgeable and willing to share their knowledge when asked. Highlights for me included Christian IV's toilet, and the treasury...

    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.

    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.

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.
