Hamlet’s Castle – Kronborg


Kronborg Castle – home of Hamlet

“No jocund health that Denmark drinks today

But the great cannon to the clouds shall tell,
And the King’s rouse the heaven shall bruit again,
Respeaking earthly thunder”

Welcome to UNESCO’s world heritage, welcome to the King’s Castle and to the world of Hamlet. Join us on this tour, where we will take the scenic route along the coast of Oresund to the historic castle of Kronborg.
Thousands of ships passed Elsinore on their way to the Baltic Sea and all of them had to pay a toll, which made the kings very wealthy. On our first stop you will see the fantastic view of the Sound and get a glimpse of Sweden on the other side. Experience the splendid castle inside and hear the love story of King Frederik and Sophie. Experience the huge dance hall and hear about life at court in the 15th and 16th century.

Find out why Shakespeare chose this location for his story of Hamlet, and learn how the famous play is a vibrant part of the Kronborg Castle today.
Feel the atmosphere in the dark and humid cassemates under the castles and meet Holger the Dane – an old sleepy warrior, who will wake up and fight for Denmark when it is needed.
