Located just a few miles outside of Copenhagen, you'll find the tranquil haven of Frederiksborg Castle, the largest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. It will truly take your breath away. It is uniquely built on three islands, surrounded by a picturesque lake, and beautiful parkland, gardens and grounds. 

Originally built in the early 17th Century to impress the guests of King Christian IV and the royal family, tragically, a fire broke out in 1859, and the greater part of the interior of the castle was destroyed – except the Chapel built in 1600 which remains largely intact and is where the kings and queens of Denmark are anointed to this very day. 

Happily, the castle was restored by J. C. Jacobsen, the owner of the Carlsberg Breweries in the 19th Century and as well as a palace, it is now the home of Denmark’s Museum of National History, with the most extensive portrait collection in Denmark. Your guide will show you all this and more. 

After your in-depth private tour of the castle, you will be able to explore the picturesque symmetrical baroque garden to rival Versailles, and a romantic English-inspired garden home to the Bath House which is still used for entertaining by the Royal family today. 

After a sumptuous royal morning with your guide, you'll return by train to Copenhagen.
