  • I found the castle very good. I strongly recommend that those who visit Copenhagen book a day pars go to Hilerod and Helsinki. I suggest we do Hilerod in the morning, have lunch over there, and make Helsinki in the afternoon. To go to all of them by train leaving from Copenhagen Central Station. As for the castle, very beautiful, you can take good pictures taking a stroll around the castle. It looks like a fortress. For those who want to enter you can have a notion of the lifestyle of King Frederik, his quarters, the ballroom, the kitchen of the palace, you could stroll underground. I found it very good, however the FrederiksbOrg castle situated in Hilerod of a bath in this.

  • Beautiful castle almost in the city center. Very easy to get to with public transportation. We bought a city card for 72 hours, so admission for this castle and many more places was free. We spent here a lot of time and enjoyed the beautiful arranged rooms. The treasury is a breathtaking place. Worth visiting!
  • Just super! I have been there before but went again with some guests and they were delighted and thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the historic castle. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Copenhagen.
