Visit to Rosenborg Castle
A royal hermitage set in the King’s Garden in the heart of Copenhagen, Rosenborg Castle features 400 years of splendor, royal art, treasures and the Crown Jewels. Rosenborg Castle was built by Christian IV, in the early 17th century.
The Crown Jewels
The Danish Crown Jewels are the result of the great interest generations of queens and princesses have taken in jewellery and precious stones.
The history of the Crown Jewels begins with Christian VI’s queen, Sophie Magdalene. When she was widowed in 1746, she expected to die of grief shortly after. She therefore wrote her will, in which she specified, that her jewellery was not to be given to a specific person, but should always be “with the crown”. In that way there would always be the most magnificent jewellery available to the any given queen.
After the visit to Rosenborg Castle we will take a taxi to the pier, where we depart for the 1-hour boat tour. The cost is included in the tour price.
1-hour private canal tour
Experience a wonderful homelike atmosphere on a charming boat tour in the canals of Copenhagen, while you enjoy a complementary drink. You are also invited to bring and enjoy your own lunch on board.

The boat tour ends at the pier of the Royal Library, the Black Diamond, only a few steps away from the Danish Jewish Museum.
