Old castle on the background of the picturesque nature, interwoven with the history and legends of these places, luxurious interiors and, certainly, nice walks in the parks – these are the things you can expect during our trip around the Land of the Vikings to the Royal Castles of Northern Zealand.
Three spots near Copenhagen are famous for their beauty, interiors and significance – the castle of Frederiksborg, located in Hillerod, Royal residence Fredensborg, in the town with the same name 30 km from Copenhagenа, and «Hamlet’s» castle of Kronborg, which is situated in the town of Helsingor. All the above castles are located so that it is possible to visit all of them within one day. So, let us do it today.
The first point of our tour is the luxurious castle of Frederiksborg, built in the Dutch Renaissance style. Having looked around the castle and having found out its secrets and legends, we will certainly look into its baroque park, with fountains, water canals and royal monograms, laid out with flowers. Wonderful nature, wild ducks on the lake, paths around the reservoir and secluded spaces in a beautiful and neat park – all this, undoubtedly, promotes romance and will not leave you untouched.
Being inspired by the walk in the Frederiksborg park, we will drive to the summer royal residence Fredensborg. This is a well preserved baroque castle, with a miraculous park and notable guardians wearing high fur hats. The castle of Fredensborg is active as a royal residence and it is harder to get there than to other places. The best time to visit Fredensborg is July. During the other months entrance there is restricted, but it is possible to watch the change of the royal guardians, visit the palace park with various mysterious sculptures, along which the Queen walks with her family, and also look into the palace orangery, which supplies fresh vegetables and fruits to the royal table.
The third castle for this day is the second popular and cult place in Denmark after the Little Mermaid – it is the castle of Kronborg, also known as Hamlet’s castle. In fact, Shakespeare did not ever travel to Denmark, but this did not prevent him from describing the castle the way that some 300 thousands of tourists come here every year. Royal suites, the chapel, Danish maritime museum, the somber beauty of Shakespeare’s tragedy and catacombs, where warrior Ogier the Dane is fast asleep while Denmark is out of danger – all this always attracts tourists and here we will have a walk and even a picnic somewhere near the walls of the castle contemplating the views of the Swedish coast and the town of Helsinborg.
