Copenhagen: Roskilde, Frederiksborg & Kronborg Day Tour

1. Copenhagen: Roskilde, Frederiksborg & Kronborg Day Tour

Enjoy a scenic sightseeing tour of North Sealand on an 8.5-hour excursion from Copenhagen, and visit the royal monuments of Kronborg Castle and Frederiksborg Castle and the World Heritage site of Roskilde Cathedral. Ideal for those who want to explore further than the city center to see as much as possible of historic Denmark, but are short of time, you will travel in a small group for a more personalized experience. The tour includes time to explore the imposing exteriors and interiors of Frederiksborg and Kronborg castles, the latter set on the banks of the Sund between Denmark and Sweden, and most notable as the site of Elsinore in Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” Soak up the romantic setting of Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød, surrounded by a beautiful lake and gardens. The guide will take you to Roskilde to visit Roskilde Cathedral, the burial site of 39 Danish kings and queens, including Ingrid of Sweden, spouse of Denmark’s Frederick IX, father of the current Queen Margrethe II. The last stop on your tour will be the Viking Ship Museum to see rebuilt models and excavated ships from the days when the Vikings rampaged their way - and conquered - much of Western Europe and the North Atlantic. Please note, that between November and March and most of April, the tour does not include a visit to the Cathedral's interior but rather a walk around the impressive structure and an introduction to the Cathedral's place in history.

Our trip was excellent from start to finish. Benji was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He brought the places to life through telling of the history and people. I’m addition, the small bus was one of the cleanest I’ve been on, and I do a lot of tours. We would 100% take a tour with Benji and this company again.

I loved this trip, Nic our guide was amazing and knowledgeable, he made sure that all of us are well looked after even during lunch time, the itinerary of the trip is expertly and excellently organised, I would highly recommend this trip to all my friends

The places are interesting, the guide very knowledgeable. Great sense of humor, too. Never a dull moment. Yes, you must get around Copenhagen primarily... but include this tour of two castles, a renaissance church and a viking museum.

Tour was very well organized and executed. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and articulate and was excellent at presentation.

Very interesting tour with a pleasant and knowledgeable guide.
