    It's a must-go place for a photo and maybe grabing an ice cream, while you walk around. It is beautiful and worth the visit.

    The man at the gate told us that we had to go in, because we thought it was only an attractie park for children. However it is more, it is a beautiful garden with more that only attractions. Only it was a pity that the white peacocks were in a very small cage.

    We visited the Rosenborg Castle on a Friday in June 2024. We arrived around noon and received a time slot at 12:30, so we could enter without standing in line very long. Using lockers for our backpacks was mandatory; bags over 15x23x15 cm must be store there too. Once in the castle, the best route is marked very clearly. We followed the arrows and used a freely available 16-page booklet with floor plans and an explanation per room.

    Via the main entrance we had access to the ground floor, the 1st and the 2nd floor, and the basement. (Additionally, there is a Treasury with an outside entrance. See below.) Rooms in the castle are numbered. They vary in size from very large to very small. Some of the rooms have only one door to enter as well as exit, so people flow in a sort of u-shape, which can feel crowdy some of the time. Luckily, backpacks and large bags were forbidden so it all went well. I didn’t see an elevator anywhere, but I don’t think there is one in such an ancient building.

    There is a lot to admire while wandering around. In fact, we see a collection of treasures, statues and paintings, and luxurious tapestry/ceilings/floors. All of that with the intent to exhibit power and wealth. It is a vehicle to present a powerful kingdom with a good taste for fine art and beautiful furniture. Their purpose was simple: showing all this to visitors as a demonstration, to leave an impression, if only to confirm that the kingdom and the state of Denmark was very much alive.

    I could not help myself wondering who paid for all this, and how much of the ivory and gold was obtained from Africa without properly paying those countries. I know this is an issue with all kingdoms who collected valuables at the time. Denmark is not alone in being guilty of such practices.

    Finally, we visited the treasury via a separate entrance outside. In fact, a vault under the castle with the kind of doors you expect around a vault. It also explains the guards walking their rounds outside, carrying real guns and obviously not there as ornamentation.

    When also including the Treasury in the basement, one can easily dwell in this building for one and a half hour without ever being bored. What we dearly missed was a chair or a bench to rest our legs, or even a windowsill was welcomed. There were some “normal” chairs, but not many. Most “official” chairs were clearly marked as no-go furniture, not-for-us common citizens.
