Luxury van: Visits inside Kronborg ('Castle of Hamlet') and Frederiksborg with a private guide


On this tour we will visit inside the two large renaissance castles of North Zealand. Kronborg at city Helsinore, located where the Sound between Denmark and Sweden is most narrow. Kronborg is known as the 'Castle of Hamlet', as William Shakespeare was inspired by stories of the castle and the court of Danish king Frederik II and used it in his famous play 'Hamlet'. For more than 400 years (1429-1857) the Danish kings used Kronborg to control the Sound, collecting the Sound Dues from the ships passing by. Kronborg is part of UNESCO's World Heritage List.

Frederiksborg is the largest renaissance castle in northern Europe and is beautifully situated on three small islands in the lake by the city Hilleroed. The great Danish renaissance king Christian IV was born in Frederiksborg in 1577.

A Recent Review of this tour

Anders met us at the cruise terminal with a luxury vehicle and driver so that he had our total attention. We had a custom tour of two castles, one of which was the most extraordinary I've seen. An avid historian, Anders knew shortcuts through the castles, where the hidden elevators are (for my 80+ year old mother who doesn't use stairs) and gave us exactly what we wanted. A+
