North Sealand stretches from Copenhagen northwards, surrounded by the Danish Sound and the Kattegat. With its popular beaches, first-class inns, and active nightlife, many call it the Danish Riviera. One thing is certain: Copenhageners and visitors alike enjoy the area to the fullest. North Sealand is home to Hamlet's castle, Kronborg, and to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, one of the world's finest.
As we leave Copenhagen and head north, for almost a whole hour, the coastline of Sweden follows us. We drive through the magnificent Danish countryside and pass the coastline to Elsinore and Kronborg Castle.
It is quite easy to understand why William Shakespeare chose Elsinore Castle as the setting for his famous play 'Hamlet'. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings and feel the atmosphere taken through the Chapel and the Knights' Hall (the longest room in Northern Europe) and the dark casemates. Lunch en route (not included in the tour price).
After the break, our tour continues to Fredensborg. The Queen's summer residence of Fredensborg Palace is attractively located in the middle of a lovely park, bordering the idyllic Esrom lake. The next highlight on this tour of many highlights is Frederiksborg Castle, built by King Christian IV. This pearl of history, built in magnificent Renaissance style, is now a national historical museum. It contains paintings, tapestries, porcelain, silver and furniture of great historical value.
