Rosenborg Palace was built in the period 1606-34 as Christian IV’s summerhouse ¨in the country¨ just outside the ramparts of Copenhagen. Christian IV was very fond of the palace and often stayed at the castle when he resided in Copenhagen, and it was here that he died in 1648. Today the castle, which is called Rosenborg Slot in Danish, is open to the public as a museum and houses the country’s Royal Collections. The park that surrounds the castle, Kings Gardens, is a popular destination for the people of Copenhagen to relax or play. When you go inside, you’ll find ornate rooms, a huge hall and bizarre collections. You can enjoyed the self-guided tour around the 24 rooms here over 3 levels, in particular the the small rooms on each floor which have become dedicated to unusual collections of things like pottery and bronze figures.
