Rosenborg Castle

Rosenborg Castle (Rosenborg Slot in Danish) is a castle located in Denmark’s capital, Copenhagen.

The castle was commissioned by Danish king, Christian IV. Rosenborg Castle, originally a summerhouse, was built in 1606 and reflects a Dutch Renaissance style, with red brick and gray sandstone.

It is located in KongensHave ("The King's Garden"), or Rosenborg Castle Garden, in Copenhagen. The castle garden is the oldest royal garden of Denmark and a very popular tourist attraction, over 2.5 million people visiting them every year.

Although the castle is a royal one, it was the seat of the Danish kings only until 1710. After that year the castle was used by the Danish Royal family only when emergencies occurred.

The castle houses a cultural history museum that contains royal collections, tapestries, and artifacts representing Danish culture from the 15th to 19th centuries, including the crown jewels, the Danish crown regalia and a coronation carpet. The museum also hosts special exhibitions throughout the year. Traktørstedet, a restaurant and café, lies adjacent to the castle.
