Description

Enjoy a scenic journey through the charming Danish countryside on your way to the beautiful castles of North Zealand. See the Frederiksborg Castle, the largest Renaissance palace in Scandinavia, and visit the Kronborg Castle, immortalised in William Shakespeare's famous tragedy Hamlet.

Drive through the forests north of Copenhagen and delve into the history of Denmark. The 17th-century Frederiksborg Castle, former residence of King Christian IV, is your first stop. Its bright red walls and green turrets rise up majestically from three islets in the middle of the castle’s lake. Explore its amazingly ornate chapel and collection of portraits and historical paintings – the country's largest.

See the Fredensborg Palace, residence of the royal family, on your way to the Kronborg Castle. Located on the northeast coast of the town of Elsinore, with a strategic position between Denmark and Sweden, the Kronborg Castle has a long history dating back to 1420. This splendid example of Renaissance architecture is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Worth the effort to visit three castles in a day. A decent trip with a guide who explains a few important things about the history etc. A clean and comfortable bus was provided and everything went on like clockwork. Recommended

Good itinerary and well organised. The guide was informative and quite friendly. However, the tour was a bit rushed and could use another 2 hours to make it perfect.
