The inside story

Rosenborg Castle, located in the centre of Copenhagen, is a Renaissance castle built in the early 17th century by the order of King Christian IV. One of the many architectural projects by the famous Scandinavian king, it was originally built to be used as a summer house.

The castle was designed by architects Hans van Steenwinckel and Bertel Lange, both known for their Dutch Renaissance style. Up until 1710, the castle was used as the royal residence and to host important events. After the ruling of Frederik IV, Rosenborg Castle was only used as a royal residence twice, before it was turned into a home for the Royal Collections.

Both the interior and exterior are well-preserved and look as they did 400 years ago. Explore some of Denmark's greatest treasures, including Denmark's Crown Jewels and other Royal Collections, in the museum and get a first-hand insight on what the royal Danish culture was like from the late 16th century to the 19th century.

Step into Knight's Hall and admire three life-size silver lions standing guard of the coronation thrones of the king and queen. Twelve tapestries align the walls of the hall, depicting the King's victories in the Scanian War (1675-1679). The Hall's ceiling includes the Danish coat of arms surrounded by the Order of the Elephant and of the Danneborg, dating back to the early 18th century.

Take a stroll through The King's Garden (Kongens Have) before entering the castle. This 30-acre garden was developed by King Christian IV just prior to building his castle and it is the most visited garden in Denmark. Souvenirs can be bought at the Rosenborg Castle Shop as a reminder of your visit to this royal castle!

Rosenborg Castle can be reached by car, public transportation, or on a bike tour. The castle is open to the public year-round, with the exception of holidays, on Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 4pm. Keep in mind that the last entrance to the castle is 20 minutes prior to closure.
