Rosenborg Castle

Rosenborg Castle (Øster Voldgade 4A, Copenhagen): Rosenborg Castle in Copenhagen is home to some of Denmark’s greatest cultural treasures. The castle was built by Christian IV as a pleasure castle. In the basement you will find the Danish crown jewels and regalia.  Rosenborg Castle was inhabited by the royal family until 1720. But since 1838, the castle with all its contents has been a historical museum. The museum has a sister museum at Amalienborg Palace, called Amalienborg Museum.

Among the main attractions at Rosenborg are the Great Hall with the coronation throne, which is guarded by three lions of silver. In the Great Hall you will also find the famous Rosenborg tapestries, which have hung here since 1693. They show King Christian V’s victories in the Scanian War 1675-1679.  In the castle’s basement you will find the three treasuries with the crowns and the crown jewels.
