Your discount hotel near Rosenborg Castle in Copenhagen won’t likely be surrounded by a moat and decorated with spires and towers. But the castle is. If you are looking for the kind of enchantment associated with the romantic tales of Hans Christian Andersen, this Danish landmark is well worth a visit. Rosenborg Slot (Slot is Danish for castle) was completed in 1606 as a summer residence for King Christian IV, and was the place where he died more than forty years later. It is a red brick Dutch Renaissance palace that rises enchantingly from the painstakingly manicured lawns of Copenhagen’s Kongens Have (King’s Park).
Rosenborg Castle is now a storehouse for various royal collections, including artworks, an armory, and the Danish Crown Jewels. It is also a time tunnel that takes visitors on a chronological trip through the reigns of Danish monarchs. One of the highlights is a 17th century armchair with hidden tentacles that would seize the wrists of anyone who sat in it. The Long Hall is covered with priceless 17th century tapestries, as well as the biggest collection of silver furniture in the world. Among the pieces are three silver lions that once guarded the king’s throne. In the Treasury you can see the magnificent sword of King Christian III, which dates from 1551. Any budget hotel in Copenhagen near Rosenborg Castle will be close to public transit, so you can easily get to this doorway to a Danish adventure.
