What to expect

The oldest Monarchy in the world has kept the kingdom together for over a thousand years through conquest and defeat, splendor and tragedy, reformation, occupation, and democracy. To better understand the influence of the many kings and queens is best to explore the castles surrounding Copenhagen and walk through the halls telling the stories of the people in power and how the many kings have shaped the history of Denmark.

On this tour, you will travel 45 kilometers north to the town of Hillerod to enjoy a guided visit to the imposing Frederiksborg Castle, the largest Renaissance castle in northern Europe, and now part of the Danish National History Museum. The castle dates back from the 17th century and it was built as a hunting lodge surrounded by a lake and royal gardens. Important events such as coronations, weddings, international treaties have taken place here.

Then you will travel further north for a photo stop at Fredensborg Palace, the royal family’s summer residence, before arriving at Kronborg Castle, guarding the entrance to the Baltic Sea for over six hundred years. From this point the Danish king controlled the trade into the Baltic, generating revenue for the crown. This is also the place William Shakespeare choose for the tragedy of Hamlet, therefore it is best known as Hamlet’s Castle.
