Rosenborg Castle, Copenhagen

4.5
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.

  • This castle is really worth the ticket price. If from the outside does not particularly impress, the interiors are all to be seen! The notes on the brochure give the basic information, which for which was more than enough. Very interesting the rooms of the palace, arranged on 3 floors, including the coronation hall. Don't miss the treasure room, with wreaths and memorabilia belonging to the Danish crown.

  • Wow. Amazing important antiquities that are well worth the price of admission. Don't be like the young Americans who were rude to the military guards and tried to sneak in with out paying. Be better than that. Gardens are great for a rest after riding around Copenhagen.
  • Went here on a solo holiday to Copenhagen and absolutely loved it, hugely recommended. The garden and park next to the castle are gorgeous but the real treat is to go round the castle on a tour and see all the amazing antiques, paintings and decorated rooms. Alongside that, the basement with the crown jewels in is beautiful and well worth visiting. All in all I had a wonderful time.
  • Amazing castle even more wonderful inside the building for me. Thousands of pictures in all walls with some extremely beautiful and ancient decorated rooms, furniture, treasury items... It is a must see in Copenhagen! Really worth it with the price you pay and also well-located in the city centre. Besides, it is surrounded by King's Garden in which you can spend some relaxing time with family or friends.
  • The line for the entry tickets (you still have to line up with the Copenhagen Card) could be better managed, but we found out why it was so slow - they restrict the number of people entering the castle, so when you eventually get your ticket (and coin for the lockers) it has an entry time stamped on it. You have to wait strolling the gardens (be sure to visit the Statue of Hans Christian Andersen and play his welcome by scanning the QR code) until your entry time. Once inside though it is very impressive with so many artifacts and royal possessions - the crown jewels in the basement being the jewel in the crown.
  • This was my second visit to Rosenborg Castle, and I think I enjoyed it even more than the first. They do a great job with the booklets, which are informative, and provide interesting, and sometimes even funny, stories about the past inhabitants. The castle is beautifully preserved, and the crown jewels are amazing. I highly recommend a visit if you're in Copenhagen.
