The tour leaves Copenhagen passing through rural villages and wooded, undulating countryside to Hillerod, where a visit is paid to Frederiksborg Castle, the beautifully situated Renaissance building which - like so many others - was built by orders of King Christian IV. Today, Frederiksborg is the home of the Museum of National History, the collection of which includes priceless paintings, silver and porcelain items, furniture and tapestries. The castle chapel houses Denmark's oldest organ from 1610. From Frederiksborg, drive on to Helsingor, passing en route Fredensborg Palace, built in 1722, the spring and autumn residence of the Danish Queen. A brief photographic stop will be made here. Upon arrival in Helsingor you will visit the imposing Kronborg Castle, which was the setting of 'Hamlet', the dramatic masterpiece by William Shakespeare. After Kronborg, return to Copenhagen along the coastal road, passing through small villages, fashionable resorts and some exclusive residential areas on the way.
