Owner description: The beautiful 400-year-old castle is situated in central Copenhagen's popular park, The King's Garden. The castle was built by one of the most famous Scandinavian kings, Christian IV. Today, the glory of the past can be experienced through the numerous art treasures of the previous kings and queens. Among the main attractions is the Great Hall with the coronation thrones and three life-size silver lions standing guard. The crown jewels and royal regalia sparkle behind the thick walls of the treasury beneath the castle.

“Nice garden”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Rosenberg Castle is not too far from the Round Tower. The gardens are very nice and well kept. Pack a picnic especially if traveling with kids.

“Must see”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

The castle houses the crown jewels of Denmark which are simply spectacular. It is a must see for all visitors of Copenhagen.

“Grand building, lavish decor.”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

A nice building set in some really well kept park land, the gardens were beautifully maintained.
The inside of the castle was worth seeing, some really lavish rooms.
The crown jewels were also very impressive. I would recommend a visit when in Copenhagen.
We managed to see the guards marching out of the neighbouring barracks when we left, also worth seeing.

“Nothing too special”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

This castle was a little underwhelming, there was really nothing to see inside besides a lot of porcelain really. It was nice enough to walk around but it didn't wow us at all.

We got in free with our Copenhagen cards, if we'd have had to pay I think we'd have been very disappointed.

“Well done self tour”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Wifi and online guides add to the educational appeal of this small but well done attraction. I was amazed that the Crown Jewels only had one guard walking the premises (that I saw) and that everything was self guided. I'm sure the gardens around the castle are lovely in warmer weather. Worth the visit!
