Rosenborg Castle, the fairytale castle across from the Botanical Gardens, King Kristian IV’s exquisite palace in Dutch Renaissance style is now a museum. It contains three centuries worth of royal treasures, as well as the crown jewels.
The garden surrounding it, Kongens Have (King’s Garden) has been a favorite with Copenhageners for centuries.
