Visit the fairytale 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. In the main courtyard, take a look at the spectacular Neptune fountain and the peppering of 17th-century copper spires. Then drive through beautiful forest and countryside to the most famous landmarks of Copenhagen, including the statue of the Little Mermaid and the Amalienborg Palace – the winter home of the Danish royal family. Not far from the palace you’ll find the waterfront district of Nyhavn, lined with gabled houses from centuries past. Spend some time here, shopping or strolling at your leisure.
The unguided drive to Copenhagen takes about an hour and a half. You'll meet your guide before entering the city. There are around 100 steps inside the castle.
