Esrum Sø

Lake in Fredensborg

At 17 sq km, Esrum Sø is Denmark’s second-largest lake. The most popular access point is about 1km west of the Fredensborg palace gate via Skipper Allé. Here you’ll find a lakeside restaurant, Skipperhuset, beside which (with advance booking) you can rent canoes and kayaks or take open-boat tours across to the protected former hunting forest of Gribskov.
