Private Guided Castle Tour of North Sealand with Private Vehicle
Tour Participation Requirements
Destroyed by fire in 1629, conquered by Swedes in 1658, and used as a prison until the last century, the castle where Hamlet is set has seen almost as much drama as Shakespeare's fictional prince. There may even be ghosts in the shadows at Kronborg Castle. It's said that Holger the Dane, a mythical king, dwells in Kronborg Castle, sleeping until he's needed to save Denmark.
The real and current royal family sleeps in Fredensborg Palace which is why you won't be going inside. They do hate unannounced visitors. That said, the "Versailles of Denmark" has plenty to marvel at from the outside. The castle gardens alone are worth the visit. You will be invited inside to Frederiksborg Castle, the largest Renaissance palace in Scandinavia, built by King Christian IV, Scandinavia's longest-ruling monarch. Its over-the-top, gilded to the rafters interior is magnificent, particularly the Coronation Chapel the only part of the castle to have remain untouched by the fire that destroyed much of Frederiksborg in 1859. Hamlet may have thought, "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark." But a GoBe tour of his country's castles would have brightened his outlook. Bewitched Business In the years before his death at Frederiksborg Castle, King Christian IV became obsessed with witches, or rather killing witches. The most famous was Maren Spliid, who was accused of sorcery by one of her husband's business rivals. Despite two earlier acquittals, the King had her tortured into confessing, then burned at the stake. No word if her hubby's rival benefitted in the end, but that's one way to get rid of the competition.
