I think a must for any visit to Denmark certainly for history lovers! We went with Hamlet Tours and learn't and enjoyed the tour. We didn't have enough time but, that was due to doing the express tour.

This was my favorite attraction in Copenhagen! Please don't be afraid to put this on your Copenhagen agenda due it being 30mins outside of the city. I promise you will not be disappointed. The price is also really great for 75dkk you get admission and a free audioguide which also makes it very affordable! The castle is now a museum... More

It's part castle, part mansion, so expect extravagance inside. We got the audio guide and it took us through the castle. The chapel and room with royal portraits were particularly memorable (the former for all of its shields for world leaders, the latter for proudly displaying an incredibly poorly-made portrait of a queen). The grounds are also very picturesque, so... More

The castle is awesome in its beauty. Loads of small details which one can dwell over for hours. There are many high lights and you don't need to enter the castle itself to have a good day there. The inside is impressive though - especially the church blows you away. I enjoy a stroll in the park in any weather... More

Frederiksborg Castle is situated in Hillerød, north of Copenhagen. It is a renaissance castle build in the 17th century during the reign of King Christian IV. It now houses the Museum of National History. It is a gem for people with an interest in architecture as well as culture and history. If you love to look at details, it is... More

Stopped over on a business trip and brought two sons age 11 and 17 who both liked it. Nice collection of art spanning multiple eras as well as the intricate architecture. If you drive up Zealand coast to Elsinore I would stop by here as well.

I've been to many castles in Europe, and this is one of my favorites. An easy train ride from the main city of Copenhagen, this castle is so worth it. When I went there actually were not a lot of visitors there which surprised me, but it added to the grandeur as I got to walk around this palace and... More

In beautiful surroundings and with a very heavy touch of the danish royal history, you will be taken back in time, with guides and costumed people to help you around. Worth the drive northwards from CPH
