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 scenic Danish countryside as you travel along the coastline towards Elsinore and listen to your guide’s insightful narration.

On arrival, marvel at the structure of Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site 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. 

Recharge 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. Take in 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 buildings, return to the vehicle and relax during the journey back to Copenhagen.

Great day trip from Copenhagen! Even if the castles weren't part of the tour which of course they are!, the trip was a great way to see the Danish countryside. Make sure to see the dungeons at Hamlet Castle - so cool!
