What You Can Expect

Castles Tour from Copenhagen: North Zealand and Hamlet Castle

Kronburg 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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

This trip was alot of fun, great people good timing. I do wish we had more time to explore the garden at the last castle. Otherwise it was great. Bus driver gave really good recommendations.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Loved the freedom on this tour. They took us to castles, let us in, and left us to explore on our own. We loved going under ground at hamlet's castle and spent most of our time in the gardens at the second castle. The commentary was even interesting on the bus. We liked the sandwiches too. All and all a great trip.
