Kronborg Castle


Kronborg 2 C


Located in the Danish town of Elsinore (English name derived from the Danish Helsingør) on the narrowest point of Øresund (entrance of Baltic Sea) between Sweden and Denmark, Kronborg is one of the most famous renaissance castles in Northern Europe. Kronborg is best known as the Hamlet’s Castle. Yes, this is the place where Shakespeare set Hamlet in. It hosts a famous Summer Shakespeare Festival. You can experience the rendition of Hamlet from June to August. It’s a delight to witness the in-place performances in different parts of the castle. The castle offers free tours in English and Danish for visitors. The castle was burned to ashes destroying most of the precious adornments. It was rebuilt and remained intact to the present day. Kronborg became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. Helsingør can be reached from Copenhagen in just 40-45 minutes by train or rented car. It’s among the best day trips from Copenhagen. We visited the castle with kids. It turned out to be an amazing experience. The admission is free for kids (0-17) while it costs 140 DKK for adults. By Anjali Chawla from Travel Melodies -
