The beautiful 400-year-old castle is situated in central Copenhagen's popular park, The King's Garden. The castle was built by one of the most famous Scandinavian kings, Christian IV. Today, the glory of the past can be experienced through the numerous art treasures of the previous kings and queens. Among the main attractions is the Great Hall with the coronation thrones and three life-size silver lions standing guard. The crown jewels and royal regalia sparkle behind the thick walls of the treasury beneath the castle.

Very beautiful building, with interesting and well laid-out exhibitions. Maybe more suited to adults than children, but depends on the children concerned I guess.

This palace is cute. There are more grand places in Europe (or even in Denmark), but it has the most interesting exhibits. One of them is crown jewels.....

My daughter and I had a good time touring this castle. They have a brochure that makes learning about the castle easy. When we went there was an hour wait until we could enter the castle, so it's a popular sight.

The castle offers lots to see and is well-laid out to walk through, but the experience is lessened by the number of people allowed in at any given time, especially the treasury. The outside grounds are beautiful.

Part castle part museum. Lovingly restored by Jacobsen the brewer of the famous Carlsberg beer. A glimpse into the lives of a long line of Danish kings.

An interesting runaround the castle. Love the royal loo, a hole 100ft above the moat. Basement next door contains the crown jewels. I was preoccupied with thinking about how best to rob the jewels. The exit seemed to have thinner physical protection than the entrance....More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
