This historic castle was constructed on three islands and is surrounded by lake and beautiful gardens. Frederiksborg Castle has housed The Museum of National History since 1878. A tour through the museum's many beautiful rooms is an encounter with kings, queens, nobles, the bourgeois, events, and epochs, which have all shaped the country's history and development from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. The museum was founded by brewer J.C. Jacobsen, the founder of Carlsberg.

Because it was not raining we were able to go in through the gardens for our visit to the castle. The gardens are beautiful and then when you enter the Castle and it does not disappoint. What a treasure this is for Denmark.

I was here back in the 1990's, and to this day recalling the splendor of the castle brings on tingles. Swans in the ponds, the art museum and sheer beauty of the architecture was burned into memory. I would love to revisit it.

I was blown away. This is an amazing castle, that'll linger on in your memory long after many of the others you've seen segue into each other. Of particular interest are the beautifully manicured gardens.

You should be able to do both in one day. However, you need to watch out for the time and hours. I wanted to do both in one day, but ended up not going to Kronborg Castle after having lunch in Hillerod. When you are at... More
