Overview
More
This historic castle was constructed on three islands and is surrounded by lake and beautiful gardens. Frederiksborg Castle has housed The Museum of National History since 1878. A tour through the museum's many beautiful rooms is an encounter with kings, queens, nobles, the bourgeois, events, and epochs, which have all shaped the country's history and development from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. The museum was founded by brewer J.C. Jacobsen, the founder of Carlsberg.

From central Copenhagan we took the train to Hillerod (free with Copenhagan card) takes about 40 mins. A 10 min walk from the train station along a footpath brings you to the Hillerod Town square. Continue around the lake and you come to the spectacular...More

It's probably the most lavishly decorated interior I've seen in any castle in Scandinavia. Not withstanding that most of it burnt down in the 1800's. The rooms are arranged according to century and tell you a lot of the kings of the time starting with...More
