Tours don’t get much more regal than this – you’ll get to tick off not one, but four royal residences. The day starts with a photostop of the UNESCO-stamped Kronborg Castle, often known as Hamlet’s Castle for its starring role in Shakespeare’s famous tragedy. It sits on a picturesque point that peeps over the sound to Sweden and the northern coastline. Take a stroll around the grounds before covering off another fairy tale location – the Renaissance castle of Frederiksborg, home to the kings and queens of yesteryear. Considered to be the most beautiful castle in Denmark, it was built in the 17th century by King Christian IV. You’ll see several rooms on this tour, including the Knight’s Hall, with its intricate wood-carved ceiling. Plus, you’ll see the church where Danish monarchs were crowned from 1671 through to 1840. Then drive through beautiful forest and countryside to the most famous landmarks of Copenhagen, including the statue of the Little Mermaid, the Gefion Fountain and the Rosenborg Castle. You’ll also pass the winter home of the Danish royal family – Amalienborg Palace.
There are about 80 steps inside the castle. This tour involves a lot of walking over uneven terrain. Lunch on this tour will be a traditional Danish meal.
