Kronborg Castle towers above a very narrow promontory between the coasts of Denmark and Sweden. The renaissance castle stands majestically with its spires, towers, columns, sandstone and copper roofs. Kronborg Castle is a magnificent renaissance castle and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. This year marks the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare. Kronborg Castle is marking this occasion by celebrating Shakespeare's immortal play Hamlet with a cocktail of theatrical adventure, drama and festivities in the magnificent halls of the castle.

The castle inside is beautifully kept and restored. The location itself is stunning. The price is cheap and touting around is easy. There is a tower you can climb 144 steps to the top for a picturesque view. There is a cafe to eat at as well. It is an easy trip by train. I spent a couple hours there.

Easy train trip from Copenhagen to a beautiful train station.Then a pleasant walk overlooking the Port to the Castle. We arrived mid to late afternoon and found it wasn't crowded at all. Followed the brochure and explored all areas of the castle. Very interesting. We even explored under the castle, actually we thought we were lost. March is stil outside... More

Lots of history about this castle for sure (I had a guided tour), but gosh, the castle is quite empty and desperately needs some painting and plastering. It quite looks like they carried away all art, cupboards etc. that had some value. Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerod, 30 min. by train from Helsingoer, is much, much nicer. Well, Hamlet of Shakespeare... More

It's the castle where Hamlet was set. That's about all I knew going in, but every local I had talked to recommended it so why not. Got a day ticket on the metro and took the 40 minute train ride out. It's a short walk from the station, and about $10 to get in. It's a very stunning place, and... More

We visited during the Shakespeare Festival (by chance!) and we were pulled into a few scenes of Act 1 (Hamlet encounters the ghost of his father) and we were able to walk down into a tunnel. Actors were great! Beautiful grounds, right on the sea. You can even hop a ferry ride to Sweden, as we did for the afternoon.... More

... from seeing it depicted in filmed versions of Hamlet (espcially the classic Grigori Kozintsev 1964). Admittedly these were all in B&W and it was always raining on the battlements when the ghost is prowling around whereas it was a sunny day when we visited this beautiful castle. So we could admire the rich colours of the stone and the... More

This was my 3rd visit to this great castle. We joined the guided casemates tour this time. The underground caverns are rather dark and gloomy...and creepy. The tour was very informative and worthwhile.
