Private Guided Copenhagen Sightseeing Drive and Rosenborg Castle
Tour Participation Requirements
They call him "the builder king," and King Christian IV sure built himself one fine home. Rosenborg is an enchanting fairytale castle, complete with gables, turrets, and a moat.
You'll spend an hour exploring the former residence of Denmark's kings and queens, where the upper rooms display the belongings and portraits of each monarch in chronological order, from Christian IV to Frederik VII. While your basement may be the receptacle for all your junk, Rosenborg's holds Denmark's crown jewels. And while you may find this castle absolutely humongous, King Frederik IV felt so cramped that he ditched Rosenborg for a roomier palace in the 18th century. Another of Copenhagen's royal residences, Amalienborg Castle, is actually four 18th-century palaces set around a huge cobbled square. They were the homes of four noble families, but after Christiansborg Castle burned to the ground in 1794, the royals purchased the properties.
Today, it's where the modern royal family spends the winter months. Everyone should have a winter home like this. The royal bigamist It's good to be the king, particularly if your name is Frederik IV. He was one of Denmark's most brilliant monarchs, but his real claim to fame was his love for the ladies. He never divorced his first wife, Queen Louise, but that didn't stop him from marrying Elisabeth Helene von Vieregg. After she died, he wed a 19-year-old countess, despite her mother's protests. After Louise died, Freddy felt ready to elevate the countess to queen.
