Fountains and lake with swans to rival Versailles--this place is stunning. Interesting tour inside as well, with Carl Bloch paintings hidden in alcove before entering chapel.

Frederiksborg Slot was built as a royal residence for King Christian IV and is now a museum of national history. The palace is located on three small islands in the middle of Palace Lake next to the Baroque style garden. Adults pay a €10 admission. The castle is very interesting – whether you are interested in 17th century Royal Danish... More

We only got to spend 3 hours here and it wasn't enough. Outside there are formal gardens, a cafe, fountains, and walking trails. Inside there are about 50 rooms of treasures on three different floors. The Royal Chapel is stunning and it's organ is from 1620. They offer an audio guide at the entrance that is very informative. It is... More

I spent a few hours here with a tour group. Plan to take the time to go through the rooms slowly - even the staircases. The portraits of the current royalty are so large and real, you feel as though you've actually met them. We didn't get to tour the gardens.

It is a bit north from the city center, but well worth it! The Copenhagen card covers the train to get up there, and the entrance fee. We visited a few castles in our trip around Scandinavia, but this one was our favorite. The inside is so beautiful and intricate, as well as the breathtaking gardens! A definite must!

Out of the way location in Hillerød, but definitely worth a visit. Allow 3 hours for your visit. As well as the huge palace, there are very extensive gardens. Palace closes at 5 pm, so give yourself enough time! Nice day trip from Copenhagen when combined with Helsingør (Elsinore) and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.

A must-see if you are in Copenhagen. The gardens are immaculate and the rooms are full of history. It was very hot that day, so be prepared if so. Get the audio guide.

If you do one day excursion from Copenhagen, make it Frederiksborg Castle. This is the largest palace in Scandinavia and is surrounded by perfectly manicured gardens and a huge lake. It was the royal residence of King Christian IV and was built on the site of an earlier castle by Frederick II. There are four floors of renaissance & baroque... More

The approach to this palace is a treat, and the interior is a feast for the eyes. Take in the Hugh interior, the history and the art. My only disappointment was the modern exhibitions at the top. Can't really understand why it needs a Bob Dylan collection- it felt out of place to the rest. If you have the time,... More

We took the train here one morning and found it worth the time and money. The palace is large and filled with a lot of art that makes it overwhelming. The free audio tour is good. Just ask for it when you buy your ticket. The town close to the palace was a very nice place to have lunch.
