Beautiful castle almost in the city center. Very easy to get to with public transportation. We bought a city card for 72 hours, so admission for this castle and many more places was free. We spent here a lot of time and enjoyed the beautiful arranged rooms. The treasury is a breathtaking place. Worth visiting!
Just super! I have been there before but went again with some guests and they were delighted and thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the historic castle. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Copenhagen.
