Rosenborg Castle – Copenhagen

Rosenborg Castle – Copenhagen

Rosenborg Castle was built between 1606 and 1633 as the summer residence of King Christian IV, one of the most important royals in Danish history. 

Since 1833 the Palace has been used only for official receptions and to guard royal treasures. 

The elegant Danish Renaissance architecture blends perfectly with the surrounding landscape thanks to its gardens.

Among the many rooms in the Palace, the most important are the Throne Room, protected by three silver lions, and the Hall of Tapestries with textile works representing episodes of the wars between Sweden and Denmark. 

The Danish Crown Jewels are kept in the basement of the Castle and trace the history of the monarchy in Denmark.

Some of the jewels that can be admired are still used and worn by the Queen on special occasions (state visits, New Year’s Eve receptions or royal weddings) and only on national soil. 

The most important jewels in the collection are the crown of absolutist kings, the scepter and the imperial globe in gold and precious stones.
