Rosenborg Palace was built in the period 1606-34 as Christian IV’s summerhouse "in the country" just outside the ramparts of Copenhagen.
Christian IV was very fond of the palace and often stayed at the castle when he resided in Copenhagen, and it was here that he died in 1648. After his death, the palace passed on to his son King Frederik III, who together with his queen, Sophie Amalie, carried out several types of modernisation.
The last king who used the place as a residence was Frederik IV, and around 1720, Rosenborg was abandoned in favor of Frederiksborg Palace.
Today Rosenborg Palace is the home of the Royal Danish Collections for instance the Royal Crown jewels. A walk round the museum would thus be a journey through the history of Denmark from Christian IV to the present day.
First Hotel Twentyseven and First Hotel Kong Frederik is located in walking distance from Rosenborg Palace.
