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.

Do not miss Helsingor castle while in Denmark. It is easily reachable from Copenhagen (75 minutes by train, quicker by car, possibly) and makes for a perfect day trip where you can not only visit this extraordinary castle, but also stroll the beautiful streets of...More

This is one of the most important Renaissance castles in Northern Europe situated at one of the few outlets to the Baltic Sea. Built in the 1420's, it was immortalized in Shakespeare's Hamlet as Elsinore. We didn't go inside but took a photo stop and...More

A great day, or half day, trip from Copenhagen. The castle is full on interesting history. Shakespeare fans will also enjoy the part the castle played in Hamlet. Admission was reasonable and the experience is with it. The workers were helpful and friendly.

From this place, you will enjoy inside of the castle and beautiful view across the channel to see Sweden. The air at the sea side, is so fresh and feel so good to be here.

Get the guidebook before you start. The English hightlight tour of the Caste is just too limited (30 minutes), but the guide was very good and made history humerous. The chapel is the best to explore and spend time. Walked around castle- amazing view and...More

Took the bicycle downtown and bought takeaway food to enjoy from this great view toward Kronborg castle and Sweden. Sweden is just 4 km away.

A wonderful place to visit when traveling in Denmark. Plenty of parking (at 10 DKK per hour or 50 DKK for the whole day) nearby and good signage for entering the castle. We drove into town just for this visit and it was very easy...More

This is a rotten answer, but it depends. If "Hamlet Live!" isn't going, then you can cover it all in half of a day. Throw in the terrific Maritime Museum next door and one of the great pubs in Helsingor, and you have a... More
