Advantages Lots to see
Disadvantages Visiting hours are short out of the summer season
|Is it worth visiting?|
After being left underwhelmed with Christiansborg slot palace we decided to explore some more of the castles and palaces in Copenhagen of which there a plenty.
Next on the list was Rosenborg slot castle which took us some time to find as Copenhagen is not big on having signs pointing to where things are. Luckily it is not located too far from the centre and when you get close the castle is quite large so it's pretty hard to miss it.
After being rushed round the interior of the castle we made our way to the small museum that is located underneath the main castle. Luckily this was opened later so we got to take our time to fully appreciate the items on display.
There was a lot of swords and weaponry but also some gorgeous old items such as ornamental boxes and a lot of amber. What did surprise me was the lack of religious artefacts as most castles I have visited have a lot of these types of objects. I am not religious but I did find it curious as to why they were so lacking in the historic buildings in Copenhagen.
Once we finished looking round the museum we went to have a look at the gardens which are the oldest royal gardens in Denmark.
Unfortunately it was snowing during our visit to Copenhagen so there wasn't really a lot to see of the gardens but they were vast and I can imagine they will be beautiful in the summer.
