Copenhagen: Roskilde, Frederiksborg & Kronborg Day Tour

1. Copenhagen: Roskilde, Frederiksborg & Kronborg Day Tour

Enjoy a scenic sightseeing tour of North Sealand on an 8.5-hour excursion from Copenhagen, and visit the royal monuments of Kronborg Castle and Frederiksborg Castle and the World Heritage site of Roskilde Cathedral. Ideal for those who want to explore further than the city center to see as much as possible of historic Denmark, but are short of time, you will travel in a small group for a more personalized experience. The tour includes time to explore the imposing exteriors and interiors of Frederiksborg and Kronborg castles, the latter set on the banks of the Sund between Denmark and Sweden, and most notable as the site of Elsinore in Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” Soak up the romantic setting of Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød, surrounded by a beautiful lake and gardens. The guide will take you to Roskilde to visit Roskilde Cathedral, the burial site of 39 Danish kings and queens, including Ingrid of Sweden, spouse of Denmark’s Frederick IX, father of the current Queen Margrethe II. The last stop on your tour will be the Viking Ship Museum to see rebuilt models and excavated ships from the days when the Vikings rampaged their way - and conquered - much of Western Europe and the North Atlantic. Please note, that between November and March and most of April, the tour does not include a visit to the Cathedral's interior but rather a walk around the impressive structure and an introduction to the Cathedral's place in history.

Very well organized trip, in time everywhere, despite of the multiple sites to be visited. Very knowledgeable guide, Frank, passionate and obviously enjoying his job. Fabulous castles and amazing discoveries, the Viking ships in Roskilde. Must see! Also, the Roskilde Cathedral with the tombs of the Danish kings is a real lesson about Danish history. I strongly recommend the trip.

Tutto perfetto, la guida molto puntuale all’orario del punto di incontro. La guida persona professionale, preparato, cortese, molto attento alle esigenze dei partecipanti. Ci ha lasciati davanti all’hotel come gentilmente richiesto. Consigliatissimo a tutti.

Nick did an amazing job, was super knowledgeable, and made the 8.5 hour trip go by super fast with his expert understanding of the history of Denmark. highly recommended!

Great tour. It was very relaxing leaving the logistics to someone else. Only wish we'd had more time at the Viking museum at the end.

It was a great tour and so informative!!! Guide was fantastic.
