Rosenborg also houses an exquisite collection of Flora Danica and one of the world’s finest Venetian glass collections, both set in tower chambers.

stones, enamel and gold ornamentation. Rosenborg Castle has a sister museum at Amalienborg Palace displaying royal history from the mid 19th century unto today.
