Rosenborg Castle is so preposterously pretty it looks like an illustration from a fairy story by local hero Hans Christian Andersen. Built around 1606, it’s surrounded by a moat and it is topped off with verdigris-covered towers and turrets. The beautiful gardens, which are the oldest royal gardens in Denmark, feature box hedges clipped into star patterns. The only downside is that its popularity can lead to long lines of visitors who have come to see the Danish crown jewels and the throne which are both here.
