A charming private day trip to Kronborg and Frederiksborg castles by train.
Visit two fascinating Renaissance castles in a day on this fantastic day trip from Copenhagen with all transportation and entry fees included! Take the train to the seaside town of Helsingør, home of Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site and inspiration for Hamlet's Elsinore in Shakespeare's famous tale. Discover the castle and its grounds, hear of Kronborg's exciting history and the Kings who shaped it, and enjoy views of the Swedish coast.
We'll then enjoy a local lunch before taking the train to Hillerød to sprawling Frederiksborg Castle, known as the Nordic Versailles.
