I visited in September, weather happened to be good. Hillerod can be reached by train. It's 35-40 min time from Copenhagen Central Station, trains leave every 10 minutes during the day, it's in the outer zone, zone number 9 in the public transport system. Then you can either go by foot (around 10-15 mins but not sure cause I stopped... More

Absolutely fell in love with Frederiksborg Castle, the gardens and the town of Hillerod. Even though the day we visited was rainy, the beauty of the Castle and gardens were not diminished. It is worth spending some time to explore the gardens and town of Hillerod. We took the train from Copenhagen, which was easy as Hillerord station is a... More

A beautiful castle with stunning gardens, even though I visited them in January! The location is wonderful and the walk through the gardens is extremely relaxing. I would go back again during the summer just to see the flowers from the garden during the summer.

The castle is out of the main city but is easily reachable by train, and if you have a Copenhagen Card the train fare is included. This castle really is a fairy tale castle; it is massive and grand the and grounds and garden are also excellent. We spend a long time inside as it really is large but the... More

This castle is private property of Carlsberg and it could use some modernization here and there. Not many services for visitors for example. The castle is beautiful and situated in the middle of a lake in the center of town. Easy to get there by S-train and a ten minutes walk. The exhibition is impressive especially the collection of portraits... More

The castle is unique, the collection is excellent, the place and the atmosphere is exquisite, the history is captivating and J.C. Jacobsen helped restore it! This is Danish history at its best.

The Slot is a big wedding cake, with icing on top. The site is well take care off and the gardens are a nice place to visit when you're with kids.

When you visit the Copenhagen region, this is a must! The buildings dating back to early 17th century are fabulous, the interior even more so. Follow the signs for visiting and you are taken through the luxury of the royalty and noble Denmark over centuries. The heraldry of many famous people are shown when you climb the stairs up to...

As for me it was most interesting during my short trip in Copenhagen and county. Nice exterior and garden zone with lake. I made a lot of good pictures. Interior isn't rich,esp.in comparison with french and russians palaces. Only one thing I was disappointed-bridge reconstruction at inner yard.

Actually, you could hide Frederiksborg Castle and its magnificent gardens in Versailles, but that just means that you get to visit most of the nooks and crannies in this terrific and well kept attraction. This was my 2nd visit, the first being last summer when the little ferry boat took us from downtown Hillerod to the castle grounds. This time... More
