Hillerod - Northern European Renaissance
Stopping first in Hillerod, you will visit the historic Frederiksborg Palace, which now acts as Denmark’s Museum of National History. The palace, surrounded by an impressive lake and the picturesque Frederiksborg Palace Gardens, was built in the Dutch Renaissance style at the beginning of the 1600s by King Christian IV.
The exhibition at the palace is also worth a visit, showcasing the fascinating history of Denmark and housing a considerable collection of portraits, historical paintings and modern art. Helsingor- Home of Hamlet
Your next stop on this royal castle tour is to Kronborg Castle in Helsingor, which is the setting of one of William Shakespeare's most famous plays- Hamlet. One of the world’s most impressive Renaissance castles, Frederiksborg is a UNESCO World Heritage site and an absolute must for anyone interested in northern European architecture.
Inside you will find an interactive exhibition, which tells the story of the riches brought by the Sound Dues enforced by Denmark and how the castle was used as a strategic power base by Renaissance kings. You must also pay a visit to the magnificent 62 metre long banqueting hall, which was renowned as the longest of its kind in the North. Concluding this fantastic tour of Denmark’s best castles, you will have the chance to relax on the scenic drive back to the centre of Copenhagen.
We built this tour because it invites travellers to journey outside the city and fully experience the wonders and histories of Copenhagen's castles.
