Overview

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.

Bastions and towers and Hamlet live in various spots around the castle. The actors get the audience involved in the play. Worth the train ride theu the countrydise and the walk from the Elsinore station.

This is a well preserved and maintained castle in what was a strategic stronghold. The roving Hamlet show as you walk through the impressive rooms is a fun addition. Make the effort to climb the tower to see the view of Sweden so close across...More

This castle is beautiful and a wonderful experience. Make sure to leave enough time to fully explore. The little show is marvelous, and the dungeons are very cool.
