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.

Rosenborg Castle Reviews
Beautiful setting in center of town for this lovely smaller palace. Exhibits were interesting and well-organized and not overwhelming. We were surprised how much we enjoyed our visit. more »
Meget smukt sted. Var ikke på rundtur på slottet men brugte meget tid i den flotte rosenhave. Det er et virkeligt smukt og betagende sted hvor ens sjæl fyldes med ro more »Very beautiful place. Was not on the tour of the castle but spent a lot of time in the Nice Rose garden. It is a truly beautiful and breathtaking place where one's soul fills with tranquility
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.
