Kronborg castle is a well kept castle sorrounded by history. I have been there many places during different sessions, always with children who love the place. They keep opening stays as the work on the refurbishment. The place offers couple of areas where kids can...More

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