Due to its magnificent architecture and wonderful park, Copenhagen’s Rosenborg Castle is a fairytale-like castle. It has also enjoyed a long tradition as a museum and since 1838, various collections belonging to the Danish royal family have been exhibited within its walls.
For more than 150 years, the rooms and halls of the castle, such as the study of King Christian The Fourth, have been open to the public.
Today, a walk through the rooms of Rosenborg Castle is tantamount to stepping in the footsteps of the Danish royal family. The transformation of the castle into a museum took place in the 19th century.
The idyllic royal gardens of Kongens Have, 'The Kings Garden', are in pleasant contrast to the dominant and historical splendor of the castle.
Along with its park, Rosenborg Castle is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places in Copenhagen.
