Rosenborg Slot is in the middle of the King's park. It also has a barrack next to it and a large garden in the front. Quite isolating in term of the landscape layout.

Our last day in Copenhagen. We went to Rosenborg Slot in the morning. You may consider that this is the Royal safe, the place for the treasure of the royal family. Heavily guarded but lot of royal collection seen. The castle is nicely built too.

The second picture is worth to mention. You can see two different people (brother and sister) from two sides. It is easily done nowadays but this picture is over a few hundred years.

We had our dinner at a modern restaurant serving modern food, mainly French. We had a Denmark beer at the beginning and then their tasting menu with wine pairing. Taste were good and price was reasonable in Copenhagen. Really satisfied.

I found that they like innovation on their food. Our last few meals were full of different ideas, and combination. The soup of this menu is a crocodile soup and they made it a Thai feel. Very interesting.

Almost evening time, before our dinner, we decided to have a canal boat tour, as it is free (using Copenhagen card). The boat will take us around the canals to the marine base, then to the little mermaid and back.

I can take a picture of little mermaid from the back. See the tourists crowding around the little mermaid?

The last picture is the old stock exchange of Copenhagen.

Stable. This castle still keeps a nice and clean stable with some horses. Nowadays these horses are for celebration. They have a collection of all the chariots too.

The entrance of the stable has some tree trimming to a rectangular shape.

From the tower, it gives you a city view and there is a restaurant there. Looking down from the tower you will see the surrounding of the castle. The last picture shows the stable and the sand track.

The castle was burnt down two times in the entire history. So it was built on top of the old one. Below the ground level there are some ruins showing the castle version no. 1.

You can see the type of stone they used for building the castle.

The King's place is grand. The first picture is the entrance, the old wooden door is an automatic door. When you get closer, it will open by itself. It is wide enough for a car to enter and usually when some foreign visitor goes see the king, their car will enter through this door and drop the visitor off inside the building. Second picture is the reception hall for national dinner, Next picture is the dinning table.

The castle also has a large library for King and Queen. Some of the books have a few hundreds year history. The next picture is the grand hall, which an artist has put 16 tapestries on wall about the history of Denmark. Last one is self-explanatory, the place for King and Queen to meet the visitors.

We were back to Copenhagen at noon. After lunch we went to Christiansborg Slot. This may be the only building in the world that put the parliament (legislative), government office (executive) and royal family together. The castle opens a few parts for visitors: the King's place is where the royal family sometime stays, royal stable, royal kitchen, the old castle ruin, the tower and the church. We went to see all but the church as the church was only open on Sunday.

The outlook is fascinating. We went to Royal Kitchen first. In the old days, this was the kitchen of the royal family. Now this is the place for preparing national dinner. A huge kitchen, different area of the kitchen prepares different food, from drink to meat to desserts.
