  • This is another of Copenhagen's beauties and a definite must see during your time in the city. It is located on the grounds of "King's Gardens", which is a thing of beauty in itself. The castle is a nice construction with a regal vibe, filled with history and art. Beginning from the small bridge guarded by lion sculptures that lead to the actual castle and ending with all the incredible rooms hosting beautiful art, Rosenborg castle is just a beautiful spot in the city, which definitely deserves a visit.
  • Stunning castle with beautiful surroundings. Can spend along time just wondering around the grounds of the castle. The castle itself takes you back to the time of the kings of old and how they lived with there vast wealth. Must visit when in Copenhagen, probably the best attraction.
