Kronborg Castle

Kronborg Castle in Elsinore is probably best known for Hamlet, Shakespeare’s famous play from 1603. The castle is within walking distance of Elsinore Station and can be visited all year. Learn about King Frederik II, who fought the Swedes in the Nordic Seven Years War and experience Denmark’s most extraordinary ballroom with unique Kronborg wallpaper.

If you dare, visit the gloomy, cold and damp casemates where the legendary, Danish hero, Holger the Dane, is asleep. Legend has it, that his statue will come to life on the day Denmark is under siege. The underground passages in the casemates have protected many soldiers when enemy bullets were fired into Kronborg. It’s well worth a visit! Read more here.
