If you love castles, Denmark has almost as many fairy tale castles as it does fairy tales! Visit the picturesque region of North Zealand just outside Copenhagen where you will see Kronborg Castle made famous as the setting of Shakespeare's Hamlet as well as the magnificent Fredensborg Palace and Frederiksborg Castle.
Leave Copenhagen behind as you head north through magnificent Danish countryside and coastline towards Elsinore and Kronborg Castle. Chosen as the setting for Shakespeare's Hamlet, this magnificent renaissance castle is on the UNESCO world heritage list.

After lunch (own expense), your tour continues towards Fredensborg, where the Queen's summer residence of Fredensborg Palace is attractively located in the middle of a lovely park, bordering the idyllic Esrum Lake.

The next highlight on your tour is Frederiksborg Castle, built by King Christian IV in 1601 - 1625. This pearl of history, built in magnificent Renaissance style with a touch of baroque, is now a national historical museum, containing treasures of painting, tapestry, porcelain, silver and furniture.

    This was an excellent tour for anyone visiting the Copenhagen, Denmark area.

    Kronborg Castle was stunning. It was a beautiful setting and a really cool castle to explore. The tour included a guided tour of the castle and grounds, which really helped to bring the fortress alive. Fredensborg Palace was a brief stop and you could only see the palace from the outside, but it was a beautiful setting in a very quaint town. The guided tour of Frederiksborg Castle was the highlight. It is a magnificent example of what you imagine a castle should be.

    Our guide and driver were fantastic. They took turns pointing out interesting historical, architectural and geographical highlights we passed and kept the longer driving parts of the tour interesting and enjoyable.

    This was a great tour. Well worth the money and time.

    A great way to see the castles and palaces in Denmark. Great commentary from Kim on the way to Kronberg Castle. Tour was well organised- the only thing I would have enjoyed was time to walk around the gardens at one of the palaces. Worthwhile trip if you have limited time in Denmark.
