Firstly, you will probably get more from this visit if you have a remote interest in the Hamlet play or in Scandinavian history in general. Without either of these factors, I can see how perhaps people wouldn't be wowed by Kronborg Castle. Nonetheless, I found it a great tourist experience. It impressed me that this museum has moved with the... More

Perfectly preserved seat of danish royalty, full of the history of the danes and their power over the centuries, lovely surroundings too.

It's a castle. With a Hamlet connection. Yawn. What more can I say? You kinda feel like you have to visit when in the area and after traipsing around the castle and pointing at tapestries and dodging the other tourists, it's time to leave again and that was just fine by me. We got in free with our Copenhagen Card... More

With the Copenhagen Card, the train to Helsingor and the castle admission are free. The location was perfect for collecting Sound Fees which Kronborg did for years until the AMERICANS refused to pay (!). It's obvious the castle wasn't a year-round home - it's sparsely furnished - but the rooms are huge and lots of interpretive history in all languages.... More

We approached the castle from the sea, from Sweden on the ferry to be exact. The sight is breath taking especially as we had the sun breaking through the clouds lighting up the walls of the castle against the dark sky and sea. From the ferry landing it is but a short walk to the entrance. The entry fee is... More

This area of Denmark is beautiful. The castle was very interesting, I went on the Grand Day Tour and Adam was fantastic, he guided us through the castle. It is interesting to see the different castles in Denmark and eras they were built in and how different from each other they are. Worth the trip to the area.

One of the most important castles in Denmark is situated in the city of Helsingør (Elsinore) and known by most people as the home of Hamlet,(Legend) Prince of Denmark. Kronborg is a beautiful castle with great views to Sweden 4 Km. across the sound. Visit the Casemates under Kronborg (be careful, though, they are very badly lighted and the floor... More

When we first walked into the fairy tale courtyard it was like being on a film set. We started off in the casemates of the castle where the soldiers lived, it was very dark with only enough light to see the arrows pointing the way but it was how they lived so very tough. We next walked round the castle... More

Quite a place. Located overlooking the entry to the Baltic. Magnificent views in any direction from the parapet. Lovely train ride out from Copenhagen, which is free (the ride) if you bought a CopenhagenCard. Interesting little town outside the station, and a restaurant just before entering the park proper. We toured the underground as well; buy a small flashlight before... More
