Originally built as a summer house in 1606, the 400-year-old Renaissance castle was Christian IV’s favourite castle. His colourful personality left a strong mark on it and Danish history. Once inside you are taken on an organised tour room by room, including the Winter room which was part of the Kings private chambers by your phone! Unless you have booked a guide. The bay windows are from 1758, the panelled walls from 1620 and the mythological paintings on the ceilings from 1770. To be honest, whilst the video is extensive, you have to see this to take everything in. As a tip, a mother and child together had invented an eye-spy game so the child had to find items and tick them off – what a brilliant idea! Your full ticket includes 6 museums and the country’s oldest royal gardens which includes the only statue of Hans Christian Andersen that is heralded in Copenhagen. It can consume 3 or more hours, less if you skip areas. Find your ship’s chat site + share your pictures + experiences to help othersShips Dock Here – Google Map position
The Danish Royal Guard march from Rosenborg Castle to Amalienborg Palace where the Changing of the Guard ceremony takes place. The ceremony takes place daily with the guard leaving Rosenborg Castle at 11:30 to arrive at Amalienborg Palace for the ceremony at 12:00. See our changing of the guard video.
It is an easy and pleasant walk to Rosenborg Castle, but the queues can be huge. When purchasing a ticket they allocate an ACCURATE entrance time. You cannot get in earlier. On holidays queues can be Vatican like. Entry is on timed tickets and when it’s busy you may not get in easily. We advise booking on line in advance. Here. If you want a tour to take you there then either book through the ship or see our locally organised excursions for further research.
