  • The first thing that meets on the way from Sweden to Denmark is Kronborg Castle. Ferries across the strait ply every twenty minutes. If you have free time, be sure to visit this castle-because in it Shakespeare has placed Hamlet

  • The road from Copenhagen back and forth plus a visit to the castle takes about three hours. Count the time correctly to see other sights of the capital. The castle is beautiful, but if you are in Denmark for a while, you need to think about the appropriateness of visiting. Ferries to Sweden and back depart every 10 minutes from the pier. The Copenhagen card is free.

  • It an amazing castle where Shakespeare settled his famous tragedy "Hamlet". It is very close to the train station and you can have fun with the Lego inside it. There are many rooms and a fantastic shop with a lot of books and souvenirs. There is a big tower with a very high stair. From there you can see a beautiful landscape of Sweden.
  • I spent good time this weekend here. It's located just next to the sea. Very beautiful and scenic. Must visit place in Horsholm. Next to this Castle there's a Maritime museum and aquarium is also there. I just loved it!
