This is the place where Shakespeare based his Hamlet.  It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, built as a fortress in the 15th century that went through multiple rebuildings and expansions. Today, there is much to see here. The grounds are excellent for just strolling around. You’ll get to se the any displays inside the castle, but also go through the underground siege areas. The tour guides here are amazing, full of dramatic flair and deep insight into the place’s history. Bewarned, there is a lot of alking to do here.

  • This is a very nice castle and a great place to visit if you want to know more about the history of Denmark. It does not cost much to go inside the castle and I recommend that you do. If you are travelling as a family the great thing is that children go in for free and there are activities for children inside like colouring.i give it a 5 star rating!

  • Fantastic visit. Lots of information in Danish and English with QR codes to take you to audio guide sections for the different areas of the castle. There is a tour only on Saturday called 'In the footsteps of Hamlet' where an actor guides you around the castle telling the story of Hamlet', which made for a very interesting and engaging visit.

  • Beautiful castle. Entry was inexpensive (little under $15 for adults and kids under 18 were free). You can tour the whole castle in about 2 hours and the grounds and surrounding area was very nice too. You can see Sweden across the strait so that was a plus also. I highly recommend it.

  • The staff are awesome! The castle is very nice but a bit bare compared with a lot of English castles I have visited. A great pity there is no guided tour or an audio guided tour. It's a pity there is some fantastic tapestry but only a little description in English. Which is OK as we are the visitors but an audio set up would open it up to the world for little cost. Still worth a visit if your in the area😉

  • Kronborg castle is one of the most important Renaissance castles in Northern Europe and has been added to UNESCO's World Heritage Sites list (2000). Very beautiful castle with a lot of history about the rivalry between Denmark and Sweden. Nice view of the straits between those two countries. A guided tour is highly recommended.
