DENMARK, COPENHAGEN, ROSENBORG PALACE AND CROWN JEWELS
This post may contain affiliate links
Rosenborg Castle is a renaissance castle located in Copenhagen, Denmark. The castle was originally built as a country summerhouse in 1606 and is an example of Christian IV’s many architectural projects. Rosenborg Castle created the setting for everyday life and special occasions for the king and his extensive family. The basement is home to the crown jewels and the royal crowns. But by the 1700’s it was no longer used as a royal residence but became the place where the Kings placed their oldest, finest and rarest objects. And opened to the public as a museum in 1838.
It is structured as a journey through time along the royal lineage. It was very grand and an interesting place to visit.
I did like the Great Hall and The Silver Lions. These are used for special occasions. During the lying in state, when the monarch’s casket is shown to the public in Christiansborg Palace Chapel, it is guarded by the three silver lions from the hall.
We then went down to the treasury to find The Crown Jewels.
All the jewels were saw where beautiful as expected.
And just look at these crowns !
Again, we got entry to Rosenborg Castle thanks again to the Copenhagen Card.
