To see an exhibit featuring a collection of Danish crown jewels and regalia, head to Rosenborg Castle, one of the country's finest examples of Renaissance architecture. Originally constructed as King Christian IV's country house in 1606, the structure underwent several major expansion projects through 1624. The elegant castle sits in the middle of one of the city's liveliest parks and serves as a royal history museum. In addition to the famous crown jewels, which are displayed in the catacombs beneath the castle, the museum collection also includes a coronation carpet and the throne chair of Denmark.

Spectacular! I have been to Rosenberg Castle many times and each time I discover something new . Definitely take a tour with the tour guides. They have so many interesting informative historical facts and stories to tell . The Royal Jewels are absolutely beautiful. The gardens are free to visit . Take a picnic lunch and enjoy the beautiful gardens .
