  • Royal Castle

    While leaving the Castle take a look back. That's a proof of this gorgeous and unforgetable royal creature. Although Frederiksborg Castle today is no longer a Royal palace – it is The National History Museum. But the castle still has very close links to the current monarchy through Christian 4.’s Chapel of Orders, and the Bath House.

    No, actually I think I came in jeans. This is just to show you the dress that king Christian IV's youngest daughter wore. Well...a replica of it :))) There is always something for children at the castle (usually in the old wine cellar or mint). When we were there, this was an exhibition on what it was like to be a royal child. Knowing that you had to be educated to become the future ruler...Children could try to imagine this, try on the clothes and crown etc.

    When you have seen the interior, a walk in the nice gardens is just what you need to get some fresh air and let possible children run around a bit more freely without the fear of them wrecking centuries old Danish heritage :)))

    Apart from getting a nice lakeside view of the castle, you can also walk around the lake and get back to Hilleroed that way.

  • Must

    Denmark has many royal castles which are well worth a visit. Frederiksborg Castle is one of the best. Next to the castle there is a historic baroque garden, built up strictly symmetrically. I've already seen this beauty, but definitelly I'd love to come back there one day.

  • To the outer yard

    Through this gate...you can now hear the fountain in the yard and begin to get really excited. Almost there!

  • Bent bridge

    Then you find yourself on this bridge with its unusual right turn. The reason for this is that the bend was very good for defense purposes. Easier to aim at enemy forces...
