Many people will probably visit this castle out of association with Shakespeare’s Hamlet, but it’s worth a visit in and of it’s own right. We visited on a rainy Monday in March, and unsurprisingly it was not crowded at all. Unfortunately the castle itself was...More

Easy to find, awesome place to take pictures. Amazing self guided tour. But offers tours in English at set times. Make sure you take the map and go into all 4 entrances in the court yard. To see the entire palace you need to go...More
