This is a lovely tour through the lush Danish countryside. Your first stop will be at Frederiksborg Castle in Hilleroed. Step inside to see this magnificent Renaissance castle which now serves as the National Museum of History. Your visit includes a peek into the small chapel with the oldest organ in the world still in use. Afterwards, continue to the charming village of Fredensborg for a short photo stop at the summer residence of the Royal Family—Fredensborg Palace. Next, head even further north to the town of Elsinore. The last stop on the tour will be a visit to Kronborg Castle, perhaps better known as Hamlet’s Castle, chosen by William Shakespeare as the setting for his play. This castle houses the largest banquet hall in northern Europe. Return to Copenhagen along the coastal road, known as the Danish Riviera, with a beautiful view of the sea on one side and very impressive manor houses on the other.
Participants must be able to negotiate uneven surfaces, cobblestone courtyards and multiple flights of stairs inside the castles. Filming is not allowed at Kronborg Castle. Wear comfortable shoes. Please be advised that no food is included in this tour; eat a hearty meal prior to departure and bring a snack if you wish.
