Rosenborg Castle was built by one of the most famous Scandinavian kings, Christian IV, in the early 17th century.
When built, it was outside the city limits, but today, it is in the centre of the city in the King’s Gardens.
Among the main attractions is the Knights’ Hall with the coronation thrones and three life-size silver lions standing guard.
The interiors are well-preserved and most of the furnishings are the original. You can experience the king’s private writing cabinet, his bathroom, and see wax figures of former royal inhabitants.
The main attraction are the crowns of the Danish kings and queens which are kept in special vaults and are embellished with table-cut stones, enamel and gold ornamentation.
The crown jewels primarily consist of four garnitures: a diamond set, a ruby set, a pearl set, and an emerald set – the emeralds being among the world’s finest.
Rosenborg also houses an exquisite collection of Flora Danica and one of the world’s finest Venetian glass collections, both set in the tower chambers.
After the tour, you can pay a visit to the castle grounds and the beautiful King’s Gardens, complete with moat and swans and catch a glimpse of the Royal Guards in their colourful uniforms marching on the parade grounds nearby.
