Kings & Castles Tour - A Tour of Royal North Sealand

Kings & Castles Tour -  A Tour of Royal North SealandJoin us in a full day's tour where we travel up the coast road to Rungsted, where Karen Blixen was born and then drive inland, along Danish country roads, to Hillerød, where you can see the beautiful Frederiksborg Castle, built by King Christian IV. When finished in 1620, it was the largest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. Today frederiksborg contains the largest collection of portrait paintings in Denmark. There are also two lovely gardens. One is the Baroque Garden, laid out in the formal French Baroque Style, the other, the more natural garden, in English Romantic Style.   After our visit to Hillerød, we drive through the woodland of north Sealand to Fredensborg Palace, where we will have a photo stop. Fredensborg means 'Peace Palace' in English. It was built for King Frederik IV between 1720 and 1726 and was where the peace treaty between Denmark and Sweden was signed, in 1720. This treaty has, over the years, turned two enemy countries into firm and steadfast friends.   Finally we drive to Helsingør, which is known as Elsinor in English. Here you can take a photo of Kronborg, Hamlet's Castle, built by King Frederik II in 1585. Near Kronborg is the Maritime Museum and close by is Culture Wharf, where you can enjoy smørrebrød, the famous Danish open sandwich. In Helsingør, you can walk around old narrow streets and visit the Cathedral, which dates back to the 1200s.    At the end of a full day, we then take the road back to Copenhagen and reflect on all the interesting things we have seen. Let's enjoy the Tour.
