This historic castle was constructed on three islands and is surrounded by lake and beautiful gardens. Frederiksborg Castle has housed The Museum of National History since 1878. A tour through the museum's many beautiful rooms is an encounter with kings, queens, nobles, the bourgeois, events, and epochs, which have all shaped the country's history and development from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. The museum was founded by brewer J.C. Jacobsen, the founder of Carlsberg.

This was my favorite castle in Denmark that I visited. The place is huge and you can walk throughout almost the entirety of it and the grounds outside so its a great place to spend several hours. There is room after gorgeous room to walk through and so many paintings and portraits to look at. The gardens offer stunning views... More

Well worth a visit inside and out. The gardens are well kept. Lovely long walks around the grounds and lake. Inside the castle my children loved the huge rooms, thrones and organ in the church.

We embarked on a short day trip from Copenhagen and visited Frederiksborg Castle, an elaborate Dutch Renaissance palace on palace lake built in the 1600's (rebuilt in the 1900's after destruction by fire in 1800's). Frederiksborg Castle is now the home of the Museum of National History and also has an extensive portrait collection. The castle grounds also include a... More

Once upon a time. If you take an interest in the King and Queen history in Europe and Denmark it is a must see. You can go deep in the culture by visiting the castle inside and also outside you get an idea of the past.

The castle itself is breathtaking. There are literally hundreds of years of history on display. The outside of the castle offers many opportunities for great pictures and the garden in back of the castle is gorgeous. The town of Hillerod also offers many nice shops to visit, some quite unique, and a variety of nice dining options.

It is hard to explain what a wonderful and beautiful place this is to see. It is set on the adge of a lake, has beautiful gardens, a boat on the lake and a nice nearby village/town. There was building work going on when we visited but that did not spoil our enjoyment. The exterior of the castle is beautiful... More
