Full description
Join in on a full day’s tour where you will travel up the coast from bustling Copenhagen to the historic city of Helsingør. There you can visit Kronborg, Hamlet’s Castle, built by King Frederik II in 1585. In Helsingør you can visit the Maritime Museum, enjoy Smørrebrød, the famous Danish open sandwich, in Culture Wharf or walk around the historic center of Helsingør. After your visit to Helsingør, you will travel through the beautiful North Sealand countryside to Fredensborg Slot, which translated means Peace Palace, in English. The palace was built for King Frederik IV, between 1720 and 1726. Then travel along some country roads to the beautiful Frederiksborg Palace, built by King Christian IV. When finished in 1620, it was the largest Renaissance residence in Scandinavia. Today Frederiksborg contains the largest collection of portrait paintings in Denmark. There are also two lovely gardens. One is the Baroque Garden, laid out in the formal French Baroque style, the other, the more natural garden in English Romantic style. After our visit to Fredensborg Palace, you will be taken back to Copenhagen.

With Arthur, our driver, and Christian, our guide, the trip was really fun. Christian was able to answer any of our questions and also informed us about the current situation in Denmark. Unfortunately, the weather didn't allow us to do everything we wanted to do, which was walking to each attraction.

In general, it was fine, maybe the departure time was somewhat late, so you couldn't visit Kronborg Castle in Elsinor, you should change
