It's really worth a visit. 50 mins from Copenhagen by train. The castle itself is impressive, beautiful! We took the tour with Horatio and it was the best decision ever. One of the most enjoyable things in our trip around Denmark. A lovely way to explore the castle and visit some rooms hidden for those who don't make the tour.... More

The Castle located in Elsinore was built in a strategically important site for Danish People to have control over the stretch of water between Denmark and Sweden and played an important role in the history of Northern Europe. However, it is famous as the setting of Shakespeare's Hamlet.A very nice example of renaissance castle.Not many facilities but worthwhile visiting. From... More

A nice castle made much more entertaining with the dramatised tour with Horatio from the Shakespeare play - Hamlet. The grounds and views are also worth the trip from Copenhagen.

This is one of the BEST Castles I visited in Europe. First, it is the base scenario for Hamlet, with major re-enactements being done every year. Second, it is the home of Ogier, the Dane (Holger Danske), Protector of Denmark, a war myth worth knowing. Third, this was the passing point for all major naval commercial routes for centuries.

The castle is the main attraction in Helsingor so definitely worth a visit. The building and the surroundings are great. Also, the catacombs are interesting. The interior of the castle is almost empty, a few pieces of furniture here and there, but the walls are all whites and it felt like it didn`t preserved much from what it used to... More

Kronborg Castle was high on our list of places to visit whilst in Denmark and we were not disappointed. We took the train from Copenhagen which took around 45 minutes and it was a very nice journey to Helsingoer, the Castle being a short walk from the Railway Station. Unfortunately, on the day we visited, we were not able to... More

Best thing we did on our trip to Copenhagen. 40 min train journey from central CPH, Helsingoer is a nice little town with Kronborg castle as the main attraction. The whole castle area is fascinating to see and impressively designed with a complicated pattern of moat and fortifications. The castle is steeped in history, made more famous because of Hamlet....

We visited Helsingor as part of our "around the sound" train/ferry ticket from Copenhagen (for more details, see reviews on the Oresund Bridge). When in Helsingor, the major attraction is the 16rh Century Keonborg Castle, which was apparently the inspiration for Hamlet's Elsinore Castle. We only saw it from the outside, both at a distance and much closer (walking around... More

This is an impressive building with parts dating back to the 1400's but mainly featuring buildings from the 1600's onwards, so not that old. The guided tour of the underground passages (bunkers) was good and in English, too. The royal apartments were sparsely furnished with only a few information boards here and there and no attendants to ask about things... More

We spent two hours walking in this famous castle, seeing the many rooms where the royal family lived for at least part of the year. The King room is specially interesting, and the ball room is splendid. Do not miss the three models showing the changes in the castle during 200+ years.
