You can choose to visit one or more castles or chose the countryside tour if you want to explore the castle surroundings.
Frederiksborg Castle is situated in the centre of Hillerod on three islets in the Castle Lake and surrounded by Frederiksborg Castle Gardens. The Castle Gardens include an English style romantic garden and a more formal French baroque garden, recreated in 1996, to replicate J.C. Krieger's gardens from 1725.
Kronborg Castle, known as Elsinore in English, stands at the seaward approach to the Oresund Sound. It's one of northern Europe's best preserved Renaissance castles. Made famous all over the world, by Shakespeare's Hamlet, it is also the most popular castle in Denmark, with about 200,000 visitors each year.
