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.

We used our Copenhagen card to take the train to Hilerod to visit this amazing castle, gardens and town. I especially loved all the art work displayed inside the castle. The grounds were absolutely amazing. The day we visited was a little cold and windy. If you are fortunate enough to visit on a warm sunny day, make sure you... More

I had heard this was the Versailles of Denmark and therefore had high expectations. Happy to say I was not let down! It's very different than Versailles (besides the gorgeous gardens) with ornate ceilings and grand rooms. The audio tour is excellent and getting there by train is simple! We walked from the station through town which was very easy... More

The castle and surrounding gardens are beautiful. We enjoyed the audio tour and it was just the right length for us. If you're in the area it's definitely a worthwhile stop, and worth the little extra for he guided tour.

A wonderful area for a stroll, i walk my dog here all the time and always enjoy the atmosphere and look at the castle. The museum is an interesting place to go just once in a while, they have beautiful furniture, paintings and other decorations.

This a place which will take you to the bygone era though you are very close to the modern civilization. The structure of the castle is beautiful and the surrounding is fantastic. Enjoyed my day by waking along the different areas! Worth visit here.

Could have spent entire day sitting by water looking at the grounds. Seriously lovely, beautiful setting, not far from train station & easy afternoon escape from Copenhagen. Exceptionally clean grounds. A highlight of our Denmark trip.

This is a very impressive castle and museum. We particularly enjoyed the beautiful castle and the views over the gardens. We came by hire car and there is plenty of parking. This is a popular tourist venue to it was quite busy with some queues to buy tickets.

This castle was mostly built during the reign of Christian IV of Denmark. He was larger than life, and so is his castle. There's a wealth of architecture, art and history here--and we didn't even have time for the grounds, which are just beginning to come into bloom in early May. The grand state rooms have either been preserved or... More
