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.

Well maintained on the inside as well as the grounds. There is small gift shop on the grounds. There are quite a few steps but it is well worth the trip.

I was married in the church attached to this beautiful castle. It's outstanding in every way. Now I live here and have a key to the boats on the lake and go fishing. Doesn't come much better in summer :-)

A 'don't miss' while in Copenhagen. We took the train from near our hotel (very easy, 40 minute ride) and then walked to the castle (an easy 15-20 minute walk - we went around the lake). The castle is large and beautiful; we'd recommend the...More
