A royal hermitage set in the King’s Garden in the heart of Copenhagen, Rosenborg Castle features 400 years of splendor, royal art treasures and the Crown Jewels and Royal Regalia. Rosenborg Castle was built by one of the most famous Scandinavian kings, Christian IV, in the early 17th century. Among the main attractions is the Knights’ Hall with the coronation thrones and three life-size silver lions standing guard. Tapestries on the walls commemorate battles between Denmark and Sweden. The interiors are well-preserved and invite you to take a journey in time. You can experience the king’s private writing cabinet, his bathroom, and see wax figures of former royal inhabitants. Rosenborg also houses an exquisite collection of Flora Danica and one of the world’s finest Venetian glass collections, both set in tower chambers.
See Denmark’s crown jewels. The crowns of the Danish kings and queens are kept in special vaults and are embellished with table-cut
stones, enamel and gold ornamentation. Rosenborg Castle has a sister museum at Amalienborg Palace displaying royal history from the mid 19th century unto today. At Rosenborg Castle you can see portraits of Johan Friedrich Struensee and Queen Caroline Mathilde. The portrait of Struensee is from 1824 by Hans Hansen and is a copy of a painting from the hand of painter Jens Juel. The portrait of Queen Caroline Mathilde is from 1771 and painted by Jens Juel.
