What makes this tour special

You will be escaping Copenhagen’s busy city centre and taking a royal timeout at the historic Hillerød, just north of Copenhagen. Here you will explore the fairytale-like royal palace of Frederiksborg that sits majestically in the middle of the serene Castle Lake. 


Northern European Renaissance 

Originally built in the 1600s, during King Christian IV’s reign, the castle was designed solely to impress visiting guests of the monarch. Although extensively rebuilt in the middle of the 19th century by Jacob Jacobsen, owner of the Carlsberg Breweries, the palace and extensive grounds are no less impressive. During this tour you will have the pleasure of exploring the richly decorated rooms, including bedchambers, dining rooms, audience halls, and portrait galleries, and the magnificent Castle Chapel with its gilded vaulted ceilings, which have amazingly survived since their construction in the 1600s. 

Denmark in a Nutshell

Not to miss is the impressive collection housed within Frederiksborg, showcasing the fascinating history of Denmark with an extensive collection of portraits, historical paintings and modern art. Your expert local guide will be more than happy to field any questions you may have about the stunning interiors and art that adorns the building. 

Fairytale Gardens

Frederiksborg is also known for its absolutely stunning gardens, designed in the English-romantic style and characterised by rolling parkland and beautiful planting. In the grounds you will also find King Frederik II's small Bath House Palace (Badstueslot) which is still used by the Danish Royal Family for wining and dining important dignitaries. The grounds also include a picturesque baroque style garden that was recreated in 1996, based on original 18th century drawings by the immensely talented landscape architect Johan C. Krieger.

Touriocity Tip:
