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.

If you are visiting in winter, the castle closes at 3pm. This is due to the lack of daylight. Rooms 1-36 are the best (beginning with the Chapel and ending with the Great Hall. The rooms are lavishly decorated. The castle grounds are impressive and...More

The castle and the grounds are stunning. Highly recommended for adults and children alike. On holidays there are activities arranged for children, e.g. Easter egg hunting around the castle, make your own crown etc.

This is a grand place and reminded us in many ways of Versailles. The grand ballroom and the modern tapestries were very impressive. You need to take your time and enjoy all of it.

This castle is outright gorgeous and very impressive. However, better don't take the audioguide. It goes far to fast, makes you rush through this wonderful building and only gives some explanation about some selected items in the exhibition.

Another beautiful place beautifully preserved and shown. Aren't we lucky to be seeing such amazing places. The history of this incredible place was fascinating and we were so lucky to hear about it and see it in front of us.

A UNESCO World Heritage site. The original palace was burned down and the current structure was a rebuilt funded by Jacobsen (the founder of Carlsberg Brewery) in the late 19th century. Plenty of things to see. Need at least half a day.

Frederiksborg Castle was beautiful, built upon three islands in Lake Slotso. It was a grey, rainy day when we visited, and the weather seemed to make the castle even more magical and mysterious. We enjoyed touring the castle, but did not have time to tour...More

Much anticipated visit. Not disappointed from the moment our coach approached the castle and we started to walk to the main entrance. We were lucky to have specialist guides for the whole of our visit but much of what we saw was self explanatory and...More
