Rosenborg Palace (Rosenborg Slot)
The Danish castle, Rosenborg Slot, was built between 1606 and 1633 in the Dutch Renaissance style, typical of Danish buildings of the time, by architetual innovator King Christian IV. Now the castle contains a museum exhibiting the Royal Collections, heirlooms representing the span of royal Danish culture from the late 16th to 19th century. Some of these artifacts belonged to the nobility and the aristocracy in the past.
The castle became state property and was opened to the public in the1830s and to serve the dual function as a royal treasury and a museum. The particularly interesting attractions include the glittery crown jewels, the Danish Crown Regalia, coronation furnishings, and impressive family portraits. The castle is surrounded by the city’s oldest public park, Kongens Have, featuring lovely botanical gardens.
Great, great value in this card. We used it for 72 hours and the freedom you get with going into each event each day is fabulous. Some times we only had 1/2 an hour before a museum or castle would close and we could go in for the short time before the venue closed. Being also able to use it to get to the airport by the metro is a huge plus.
Got a great overview of the city. it was a windy and rainy day so at least we got to see what we could through the window
This was a great investment. We were able to ride trains, get into Tivoli Gardens and other sightseeing venues by just showing the card. Well worth the price in that pricey city.
The upper rooms of the Rosenborg castle are chronologically arranged by monarch to display royal heirlooms. The Renaissance castle and surrounding area is a major attraction, and is particularly beautiful during the blooming summer months.
