A royal run-down of Danish history

At Rosenborg Castle you can explore Danish history seen from a royal perspective.

Set in the beautiful King’s Garden, this Renaissance-style castle is an historic building with a fairy-tale feel, built by Christian IV more than 400 years ago. It became the king’s favourite castle and formed the setting for his everyday life and special events alike.

Today, Rosenborg Castle is a very special museum of cultural history. Here, history is presented in ways that amaze, move and fascinate. Right in the heart of the Danish capital.
