  • The chapel

    Kronborg Things to Do

    The chapel is the top point of the visit to the castle. With its Renaissance decoration it is a festival of colors, in a style looking heavy and dense to my Latin eyes, but all of it is harmonious and respectful. There are different tickets, according to what you wish to see, but this chapel should be your top priority.

  • The castle

    Kronborg Favorites

    We went to Kronborg expressly to visit its castle, immortalized by Shakespeare, when he made it the setting for Hamlet. I think that the same happens to most visitors, who bring fromm the city the same idea that we've got - nothing. The castle is all, and it is a nice though sad building, with so much history that I would need several pages to tell...

  • Humlebaek Town

    Humlebæk Things to Do

    I don’t think any tourist would ever visit the small town of Humlebaek if it wasn't for the Louisiania Museum of Modern Art. We were there for the same reason so we didn’t care that much. On our way to/from the museum we noticed a bakery (very helpful if you want to spend much at the beautiful but overpriced café of the museum), a pizzeria and...

    I realise that being a huge Karen Blixen fan, I might be subjective, but really, this is the cosiest and the most charming museum I've been to. I visited there in January 2008, very obviously off-season, and was fascinated to discover that I was in fact the only visitor at that point of time. A very nice lady at the ticket desk simply took a key,...
