Tour Details

Royal Frederiksborg and Hamlet Castle

Explore the regal splendor of Denmark on this enchanting Copenhagen bus tour. You will visit several historic castles as you take in the charming countryside just north of Copenhagen.

This Denmark castle tour is the only of its kind to feature both the Frederiksborg Castle and Kronborg Castle in one amazing trip. Your Copenhagen tour begins with a drive up Riviera Road with its spectacular views of the Oresund Strait on your way to Hillerod. First, stop at Frederiksborg Castle to explore its impressive ancient architecture and art. Your visit to this historic royal site includes entrance into the castle, the National History Museum's royal art collection, the Chapel of Orders, and the Knight's Hall. Next, stop at Fredensborg Palace, which the Royal Family used as its summer home. A quick bus trip to Elsinore will bring you to the impressive Kronborg Castle, which is the setting of Shakespeare's play, Hamlet. One of Northern Europe's most important and famous Renaissance Castles, Kronburg was built between 1574 and 1585 on the seaward path to the Sound Oresund to help defend Danish interests in the area and collect tolls as ships passed through the strait.

This amazing journey into Denmark's rich royal history is perfect for history buffs, art lovers, and castle enthusiasts alike. Don't miss your chance to explore these ancient architectural marvels.

Beautiful Castle!

The drive to the castle just took an hour and we really enjoyed it. The castle was beautiful and the information provided was excellent. The tour guide was funny and shared a lot of information about life in Germany. We were on a Baltic cruise and decided we didn't want to take the Berlin excursion because of the amount of driving required. This was a great alternative! We arrived back by 2:00pm and still had time to go to the seaport village and explore.

Beware of the time your ship arrives in port before booking this tour. It takes some time to get to the meeting place. We missed the tour but took an expensive cab ride to catch up. The tour company was awesome trying to connect and we ended up having a wonderful time. Would have liked more time at Frederiksborg castle, but overall just wonderful.
