Kronborg Castle towers above a very narrow promontory between the coasts of Denmark and Sweden. The renaissance castle stands majestically with its spires, towers, columns, sandstone and copper roofs. Kronborg Castle is a magnificent renaissance castle and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. This year marks the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare. Kronborg Castle is marking this occasion by celebrating Shakespeare's immortal play Hamlet with a cocktail of theatrical adventure, drama and festivities in the magnificent halls of the castle.

So lucky to have been at Kronborg Castle while the live production of Hamlet was happening. The actors roamed the halls in period costume doing scenes from the production. They were happy to stop and chat and take photos. There were signs letting you know...More

Took a train out of Copenhagen (c. 1 hr) to go to Kronborg and had a lovely time. There's lots to see and do, and they've made a real effort with all of the exhibitions. If you have a Copenhagen Card, the train fare plus...More

Me and my boyfriend stopped here on our way to Helsingborg. We were there when they opened which was nice since there is less people. It was cool to watch the actors play scenes from Hamlet. We took two of the free tours during the...More

A fine 15th century castle to visit - you can climb up 145 steps to get a fantastic view of Helsingor as well as Sweden (which is 20 minutes away by cheap ferry and worth a quick visit!). It was summer when we visited so...More

Even if you're not deeply into Shakespeare, you should get a kick out of the little skits performed by the various Hamlet characters roaming about the grounds. The castle is quite interesting and you can visit all parts of it at your own pace, as...More

We didn't have time to wait for its opening but wanted to see the castle. We went there very early in the morning. It is really peaceful and beautiful at that time of the day. It is also good to visit its garden and surrounding...More

A nice place to visit with great views and plenty of hidden gems. Make sure you go to all areas of the castle as there are towers and underground sections that are well worth a visit.

Take train at Copenhagen Central Station to Helsingor, 13 stops, approximately 1-hour, then about a 15 minute easy walk to the castle. You can't get lost, you'll see it as you leave the station. Go into the town square, past... More

You must investigate buying the Copenhagen card. You can buy a 2 day pass. Not only do you get free entry into a whole stack of places, but your busses and train tickets are free as well. We found Kronborg castle to be a big... More
