This historic castle was constructed on three islands and is surrounded by lake and beautiful gardens. Frederiksborg Castle has housed The Museum of National History since 1878. A tour through the museum's many beautiful rooms is an encounter with kings, queens, nobles, the bourgeois, events, and epochs, which have all shaped the country's history and development from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. The museum was founded by brewer J.C. Jacobsen, the founder of Carlsberg.

If you come to Copenhaguen for several days, this castle is a must. Beautiful rooms and old furniture. And the sights of the castle are probably the mostrar beautiful of Denmark

It's definitely a gorgeous castle, Even though it burned down, they have redone so much with it to restore as much as they could to it's original grandeur. Very beautiful and a must see

Easy to get to, short trip from Vesterport (about 45min by train) We did the audio tour. Entry included with Copenhagen card as was the transportation cost. Informative tour and followed by a beautiful walk on the grounds.
