The castle is beautiful and maintained well. Descriptions under each room on whom/why/how is mentioned in detail. It will take around 3-4 hours to see the castle with medium interest level.

Ticket cost is 100 krona, and if you visit the maritime museum a discount of 25% is offered.
Amazing experience! Close to Copenhagen by train. So if you have time then do visit n also the cute shopping street. Beautifully decorated for Christmas.
