On this five-hour Copenhagen shore excursion, you’ll travel through the Danish countryside to Kronborg, a 16th-century Renaissance castle on the northwest tip of Denmark. Better known as Elsinor from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Kronborg is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Hamlet has been performed inside the castle several times by actors like Jude Law and Laurence Olivier.
On the way to Kronborg, you’ll stop by two other Danish royal sites. First, you’ll visit Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerod. The largest Renaissance palace in Scandinavia, Frederiksborg houses a collection of art known as the Museum of National History.
