Castles Tour from Copenhagen: North Zealand and Hamlet Castle

Kronborg Castle, Denmark

Leave Copenhagen behind as you head north through magnificent Danish countryside and coastline towards Elsinore and Kronborg Castle. Chosen as the setting for Shakespeare's Hamlet, this magnificent renaissance castle is on the UNESCO world heritage list.

After lunch (own expense), your tour continues towards Fredensborg, where the Queen's summer residence of Fredensborg Palace is attractively located in the middle of a lovely park, bordering the idyllic Esrum Lake.

The next highlight on your tour is Frederiksborg Castle, built by King Christian IV in 1601 - 1625. This pearl of history, built in magnificent Renaissance style with a touch of baroque, is now a national historical museum, containing treasures of painting, tapestry, porcelain, silver and furniture.

I enjoyed the tour and the tour guide, Hannah, was knowledgeble and engaging. As was the bus driver. The tour lived up to everything the ad promised. The only suggestion I'd make is that the 2nd castle Summer Palace? was not worth the time since you could only see it from the outside far outside. I would rather have spent more time at the other 2 castles. But overall, very happy - a nice tour.

We packed a lot into this day tour. Travel was by very comfortable coach. The bus stop was easy to find and the onboard staff were very efficient and friendly. We had enough time to see the highlights of each castle with the tour guide. Lunch was ordered on board and was delicious. All in all, a great day out - highly recommended.
