Rosenberg Palace

Wouldn't you like to live in a Castle like this? This is Rosenberg Palace, one of the most beautiful structures in Copenhagen and home to the Crown Jewels. Here is some info from frommers.com: Christian IV conceived of the palace in 1606 but it began with Kongens Have, the King's Garden, which still surrounds the palace today, and is one of the more delightful places in Copenhagen for a stroll. The king liked the place so much he built a summer pavilion here, which eventually led to the creation of this monumental red-brick slot (castle), inspired by the Dutch Renaissance style.

It would be fun to have a home away from home like this. But one might have to sell the Crown Jewels to be able to pay for the upkeep!

Could that fit on a Manhattan block? Somehow I could see that building in NYC.
