Rosenborg Castle

We visited Rosenborg Castle in Copenhagen on Sunday. It is a fascinating place ,well worth a visit. The paintings provided really good depictions of 17th century uniforms and the Tapestries in the throne room are full of details of the Scanian wars. Some were depicted as illustrations in books l have but many were new to me. Combined with some incredible parade armour and saddles, not to mention Crown Jewels and lovely gardens a visitor needs to leave plenty time to appreciate it all.


  1. A 1,2, a 1,2,3,4 ...
    "Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
    Friendly old girl of a town
    'Neath her tavern light
    On this merry night
    Let us clink and drink one down
    To wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
    Salty old queen of the sea
    Once I sailed away
    But I'm home today
    Singing Copenhagen, wonderful, wonderful
    Copenhagen for me
    I sailed up the Skagerrak
    And sailed down the Kattegat
    Through the harbor and up to the quay
    And there she stands waiting for me ..."
