A majestic place with excellent scenery with not only carefully trimmed bushes, but also forests with trees growing naturally.

This palace is so awesome. We've been there in spring, summer and winter - all year this place is great. In the spring, the Queen comes to Fredensborg for her summer residency. It seems the entire town gathers in the city center in the evening to "welcome" the queen. They march from the center with torches they carry to the entrance of the palace. This is the only time the general public is allowed inside this area of the grounds while the Queen is there. Once everyone is gathered in that area, the Queen comes outside where she is greeted by song. Several songs are sang. I'm a big fan of Viking history and their march to the palace with torches seems to me to be a bit of a Viking ritual (it is really cool to experience). Once the singing is done, she delivers a short thank you to the public for the welcome and she wishes they a happy summer. There is also a great greenhouse on site that offers tours occasionally one can tour the palace -we did several years ago. The Crown Prince and his wife are currently building facilities there to house horses as that area has several prominent horse breeders and horse farms. The gardens (woods) are great to take a stroll. There are many great sculptures in the gardens too. There is usually a lot of snow there in the inter so sledding is possible there.

But that said, the park is the real gem here. You can go both for a short or for a long walk in this gorgeous park. There is many opportunities here. Both if you're just interested in a short walk or a good long walk.

Check the times specifically for the English language tour! They did a great job walking us around the castle and grounds. They have a great sense of humor and are very informative.
