A royal hermitage set in the King’s Garden in the heart of Copenhagen- Rosenborg Castle features 400 years of
splendor, royal art treasures, 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 its main attractions are the Knights’
Hall with its coronation thrones and three life-size silver Lions (guards of the royal family). The tapestries on the walls commemorate battles between Denmark and Sweden. The interiors are well-preserved and invite you to take a journey back in time. You can experience the king’s private writing cabinet, his bathroom, and see wax figures of
former royal residents. 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.
The crowns of the Danish kings and queens are kept in special vaults and are decorated with stones, enamel and
gold ornamentation. Rosenborg Castle has a sister museum at Amalienborg Palace displaying royal
history from the mid-19th century until the present day. At Rosenborg Castle, you can see portraits of Johan
Friedrich Struensee and Queen Caroline Mathilde. The portrait of Struensee by Hans Hansen dates back to 1824
and is a copy of an original painting by Jens Juel. The portrait of Queen Caroline Mathilde is from 1771, and was
also painted by Jens Juel.
