Kronborg Castle - Review

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.

Kronborg Castle, Copenhagen Reviews

  • It's a must visit, especially for history and literature enthusiasts. Although the castle is minimalistic and not as opulent as some of the other Danish palaces, it more than makes up for it with it's delightful place in Shakespeare's world, the rather scenic location and most of all, with the live Hamlet play (I suggest checking the dates beforehand). The crew enacting "Hamlet" is terrific and you will be transported back to the 1600's. There is also a dimly lit dungeon/huge underground storage area with a giant statue of Holger the Dane that is very exciting to see. There is also a small beach nearby and lots of small ice cream shops as well as the Maritime Museum. All in all, it would take about 3 hours for a complete tour. The museum shop is also charming and has a wide variety of trinkets to buy.

  • Magnificent Castle in North of Denmark. It is famous to be the castle that inspired the Shakespeare's Hamlet. I will recommend to visit it in spring-summer to have a complete experience of the castle itself and all the area around, which is beautiful, as long as not to be stopped by the extreme cold of the north. Its condition is perfectly preserved. On the first bridge there is an attempt of introduction in some contemporary art installation ( hands trying to go up on the bridge) that unfortunately were not highlighted further on.

  • Just walked around the free and open parts of the castle. Our daughter loved walking on the outer wall and looking at the sea. We also visited the playground that was wonderful in its simplicity. Since we found all these "treasure chests" with games we will definitely return and pay the entrance fee to the inner parts of the castle so we also get a chance to explore these chests . Well worth a visit!

  • Wonderful castle! Great experience. Lovely architecture and a lovely story behind. Inside there are some places for kids to play. You can go on the top and see nice views around! You can walk around to see Sweden on the other side and fishers :)

  • The castle is most impressive, but perhaps even moreso due to just how much of it is open and accessible. The exterior is truly spectacular, but the interior hold even greater wonders, from the gallery and the ballroom all the way to the top of the cannon tower. The sight across the sound is not to be missed! But the most amazing part of the castle is the live Hamlet performance played throughout the rooms of the castle. The play moves from the courtyard through the king's chambers, finishing in the ballroom with the fateful duel. The acting and characterization is top notch, but the setting! You have never seen Hamlet like this, truly the castle brings it to life. Forget spending an hour here, visiting should take all day. See every scene, and only pop out for lunch at the street food market nearby.
