What You Can Expect

Castles Tour from Copenhagen: North Zealand and Hamlet Castle

Kronborg Castle, Denmark

Depart from a centrally located pickup point in Copenhagen and climb aboard a vehicle destined for Kronborg Castle. Admire the spectacular Danish countryside as you travel along the coastline towards Elsinore and listen to your guide’s insightful narration.

On arrival, marvel at the majestic structure of Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed structure used as the setting for the film adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Venture within and enjoy a guided tour of the opulent chambers and stolid towers inside the castle. 

Revitalize with a traditional lunch (own expense), and continue towards Fredensborg, home to the summer residence of Denmark’s queen. Gaze at the regal splendor of Fredensborg Palace, located in midst of a park bordering the Esrum Lake, and then arrive at the next historical highlight of your tour. 

Disembark at Frederiksborg Castle, a pearl of history built by King Christian IV in the 17th century. Marvel at the architectural mélange of Renaissance and Baroque styles and head inside to see a national historical museum replete with paintings, porcelain and tapestry. 

After thorough exploration of the beautiful buildings, return to the vehicle and relax during the journey back to Copenhagen.

Stromma dk basically does all the tours and they are beyond top notch. The bus was amazing and our tour guide and driver....the best.

We also did a canal tour with Stromma dk and Nicolena was such an amazing person and tour guide. I would definitely recommend this tour and all stromma dk tours in Denmark.
