The elegant castle sits in the middle of one of the city's liveliest parks and serves as a royal history museum.

  • Vintage. A very composed and elegant archetype of Danish renaissance. Would recommend to visit in summer - to see the full extent of its pulchritudinous.  more »
  • Been there for seeing the part of Danish history. Great castle with depressingly dark corridors. Do not miss out if u love history.  more »

  • The castle is tiny (relatively speaking for a castle) but absolutely stunning. Every room is completely unique in a different style. Every surface is covered with paintings, carpets and wood decorations. The extravagance is almost overwhelming. Definitely worth a visit
  • Definitely worth a visit. The throne room is luxurious. Pay attention to the thrones, delicate tapestries. Also not to miss: the green glass room (Venetian glass collection) and the treasury ( basement ). Keep the ticket carefully, as you will need it for the treasury. Beautifully preserved castle rooms. Some smaller side-rooms are protected with glass - which is great to keep them in good condition, also make them available to the visitors
