Visiting "Hamlet's Castle" was high on our list as history and literature buffs -- and the in this case, the journey was as interesting as -- if not more than -- the destination. Even though Kronborg Castle is in Helsingor (Elsinor in Hamlet) Denmark and...More

Situated at an hour's train ride from Copenhagen, the beautiful town of helsingor hosts this castle. Very well maintained, clean, with amazing views. You can walk around for 3-4 hours soaking in the amazing views.

We came looking for Hamlet’s castle and Dick reed an amazing site which taught us a lot about Denmakr’s history, especially a time when it was a hugely successful political and military forces in Europe. Be sure to take time to admire the tapestries.

The castle is very large, but most of it is not open to the public. There are actors running around reenacting scenes from Hamlet. All very entertaining. And you can easily get there by train, which is also included with the Copenhagen Pass.

It is a bit of a hike from the parking area across cobblestones to reach the entrance, probably a 5-10 minute walk depending on your speed. The castle is impressive in size but I was disappointed that most of the rooms we visited were unfurnished....More

Maybe 3-4 hours. The time you spend inside the castle depends on your interest.
