Castles Tours from Copenhagen
By Viator, May 2014
After that, explore the Queen's summer residence of Fredensborg Palace, set in a beautiful park bordering Esrum Lake, and then on to the truly amazing Frederiksborg Castle. Built by King Christian IV in the 1600s, this magnificent Renaissance-style castle is now a national historical museum, holding treasures of painting, tapestry, porcelain, silver and furniture.
If you like your castles with a hearty dose of literature, you may want to cut to the chase and immerse yourself in a specific Hamlet Castle Tour from Copenhagen instead, exploring the castles made famous by Shakespeare's immortal play. Be enchanted by the tales of Shakespeare relating to the intriguing Elsinore Castle. You'll see the outer walls and the towers of Kronborg Castle, the historic place where Hamlet talked to a ghost. Once you've had your fill of Hamlet, take in the beauty of the nearby town of Helsingor, with buildings dating back to the 1700s, before traveling back to Copenhagen via the Danish Riviera.
