Rosenborg Castle

Leslie left this morning so I headed out to attempt accomplishing a few touristy things we hadn’t covered.   First stop, Rosenborg Castle.

The castle was built as a country summerhouse in 1606 for Christian IV but stopped being used as a residence in the beginning of the 1700’s.

The grounds were quite nice with some formal gardens but the castle itself was just OK to me.  Partly because it was so dark in there that I would be depressed if anyone expected me to live there, crown jewels or no crown jewels!  No wonder the Royals no longer use it.

I have also seen my fair share of castles at this stage of my life and this one was a bit ho-hum.

One of the most peculiar things, though, was there were a few “busts” of the royals that were essentially like mannequins made in the image of whoever and then encased in a box.   For all the world, they were like those weird fortune-teller things you see at a fair or some similarly odd place.

Not my thing, thank you!
