Castles of North Zealand

  • Approximate Cost: $199 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 6 hours
  • Location: North Zealand, Denmark
  • When: Daytime tour, lunch included
Explore the beautiful countryside north of Copenhagen and see three of the most beautiful castles in northern Europe. At Frederiksborg Castle, you’ll see the exterior of Scandinavia’s largest Renaissance castle. We’ll also pause for a photo stop at Fredensborg Palace, the Danish Royal Family’s spring and autumn residence. Cultural Discovery: A highlight will be your tour of Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in fabled Elsinore. This exquisite Renaissance castle set directly on the Øresund grew prosperous by levying a tax on all ships that sailed past her. But Kronborg’s real claim to fame is as the inspiration for Elsinore, home of Shakespeare’s doomed hero, Hamlet. During our visit an actor performing as Hamlet’s friend Horatio will lead us through the various chambers, dungeons, and halls where important scenes in Hamlet took place. On our way back to Copenhagen we’ll drive along the scenic Danish Riviera, where some of Copenhagen’s most beautiful soft white sand beaches are. A traditional Danish lunch at a local restaurant will be included.
