A Royal Birthday Celebration

King Christian IV of Denmark was born on April 12th, 1577. On Saturday the 15th of April we’re celebrating his birthday with a festive day for children and adults – and a final chance to explore our current family exhibition “The Rose Cannon – The King’s Enchanted Garden”.

Join us for a birthday celebration for the old king who built the Round Tower. Listen to renaissance music composed by his royal court musician John Dowland, wish the king a happy birthday as he walks about his majestic tower and get lost in his enchanted flower garden in our current exhibition.

“The Rose Cannon – the KIng’s Enchanted Garden”

Christian IV was a king who valued growth. Before letting the Round Tower sprout up in the heart of Copenhagen, he created the King’s Gardens where he placed his loveliest rose: Rosenborg Castle. He even made a cannon adorned with rosebuds! 

With a spark of inspiration from the rose cannon and floral objects from Rosenborg Castle, Signe Kejlbo creates an enchanted garden where children and adults can immerse themselves in the secretive world of flowers. Here, paper flowers and poetic stories will unfold among breezy garden tents and secret pathways. 

Come, walk among the king’s flowers and help build the Rose Cannon’s flower explosion by adding your own paper flower creations at the craft tables.

Please note! The exhibition closes at 2PM on April 15th
