The flying winger agreed on personal terms of his four-year deal with The Addicks on Thursday evening after the two clubs agreed on the transfer fee last week.
Valley boss Alan Curbishley is keen to add international quality to his squad in a bid to bolster their position in the top half of The Premiership.
The deal had to wait until Denmark ended their Euro 2004 campaign but Rommendahl has now become a Charlton player.
The Dane says that he was desperate for a change after spending so long at PSV, and said international team-mate Claus Jensen helped persuade him to join Charlton.
"I wanted to try something new and I've always liked the way they play football in England," Rommedahl told the club's official website.
"I spent eight years with PSV playing the same kind of football every week and playing against the same teams every season, so I needed some fresh air.
"I watched some of Charlton's games on television last year and saw that they wanted to play good football.
"Claus told me what a good club it was and I knew that I could trust him. And when I spoke with Charlton they made a good impression on me.
"I played with Claus back in Denmark at Lyngby and when he went to England I went to PSV.
"It helps if you already know some of the players when you move to a new club, it helps with life outside of football as well."
