Description

The Danish royal history shows its splendor  when we visit the castles that are north of Copenhagen. Through the charming Danish countryside we head to Frederiksborg Castle, where we will admire its beautiful interior as well as the nearby Baroque gardens. Then we will go to the imposing royal fortress of Kronborg.

Frederiksborg Castle: the largest in Scandinavia, built in Dutch Renaissance style for King Christian IV. It is a gem of Danish architecture of the seventeenth century. It has beautiful French-style gardens and an ornately-decorated chapel where the crowning of absolutist kings took place; high monarchical value, a royal residence until 1859 and is now part of the National Museum.

Kronborg Castle: this former military fortress is 45 kilometers north of Copenhagen and is world famous because it inspired William Shakespeare's famous drama "Hamlet". It was the fighting grounds of invasions and battles against the Swedish army, and is now a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site. From here you can enjoy fantastic views of the Swedish coast.
