Rigshospitalet, or simply Riget (as in Lars von Trier's mini-series The Kingdom) - is The Kingdom Hospital in Denmark, situated in Copenhagen. It is part of the Copenhagen University Hospital together with the faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Copenhagen.

Rigshospitalet's mission is to be Denmark's leading hospital for patients needing highly specialized treatment.. Rigshospitalet's main specialist role has been enhanced in recent years by the decision that it should serve as the host institution for many of Copenhagen's speciality departments. Because of this, other hospitals refer patients to Rigshospitalet for the unique expertise available there. Rigshospitalet’s neighbor, Panum Institute, houses the Health Sciences Faculty of Copenhagen University, and this proximity optimizes a close cooperation between the two in the fields of research and development. The Nordic Cochrane Centre and the University Centre for Nursing and Care Research is placed within Rigshospitalet.

With 1,120 beds, Rigshospitalet has responsibility for 65,000 inpatients and approximately 420,000 ambulant visits annually. In addition to its eight thousand personnel (seven thousand full-time equivalents), the hospital trains, hosts, and has the in-service advantages of students of medicine and other health care sciences as well as scientists working within Rigshospitalet under a variety of research grants.

The hospital became internationally famous as the location of Lars von Trier's television horror mini-series The Kingdom.

The Danish government has however in 2006-7 put forth a proposal for a new elite-hospital to surpass Rigshospitalet.
