Rosenborg Slot (Rosenborg Palace, in English) is the former home of the Royal family of Denmark.
Rosenborg Slot is set in Kongens Have (The King’s Garden). It is a lovely park with many interesting statues. It looks like the perfect place to have a wee picnic.
It is currently the house of the crown jewels of Queen Margrethe II.
These are kept downstairs in the Treasury, along with assorted gifts to the monarch of Denmark throughout the years. What was really interesting to me, having seen the English queen’s jewels, was that the jewels were just in cases around the room. There was no conveyor belt to keep you moving along. You could stand there gazing at the crowns and tiaras and necklaces as long as you like.
Up top, there are 3 levels of rooms decorated as the various monarchs and their children had them decorated.
Entrance into Rosenberg Slot is 90DKK (60DKK for students). Or you can buy a combination ticket for 140DKK that also gives you entrance to Amalienborg Slot, which is the current home of the Danish Royal Family. If you’re planning on going to both, this is the way to go. I was a little on the fence about going to Amalienborg, but decided to go after hearing the discount on the tickets!
It was really cool to see the rooms done up in the styles of the day. It felt like I was travelling through time. In style. Like most women, I really enjoyed the crown jewels… and I appreciated being able to gawk at them at my leisure!
