Dragør - The picturesque fishing village

Join us on a tour in the picturesque fishing village Dragør – just half an hour from Copenhagen. The city is on the top 10 of the most beautiful towns in Denmark! Feel the fresh, cool breeze of sea air coming in from the South, absorb the tranquillity in the charming narrow streets among the distinctive yellow fishermen’s houses. In order to be a true local in Dragør, it is said that you need to be able to trace your ancestors back at least three generations! The first people in the city were Dutch – brought to Denmark by the King to grow vegetables for his mistress. Get a good view of the bridge connecting Denmark to Sweden and listen to the riveting stories of the fishermen in Dragør and how they helped save the Danish jews during the WWII.

Kronborg and walking Tour in Elsinore

A spectacular attraction is of course Kronborg Castle, beautifully located on the coast and with a splendid look to Sweden. This is the home of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and since 2000 on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. The coast of today’s Sweden is so close that is not difficult to imagine that this was bound to a place of strategic importance. Here Denmark showed it’s strength in the nation’s defense. From the fortress you could see the enemy approaching and be ready. At the same time Kronborg and the control of the strait meant that the King could make a fortune collecting sound dues from every ship that asked to pass through the narrow strait to the Baltic Sea. This privilege as tax collector lasted almost 400 years and was of key importance to the kingdom’s wealth and influence in Europe. Feel the atmosphere in the dark and humid casemates under the castles and meet Holger the Dane – an old sleepy warrior, who will wake up and fight for Denmark when it is needed. Hear about the importance of this place in Danish and European history, and find out why Shakespeare chose this location for his story of Hamlet. As a matter of fact he was never here himself! When you have completed your visit at the Kronborg Castle, we can go for a walk in the Elsinore is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Denmark. Very charming with ochre coloured, timber framed houses, narrow cobblestone lanes and, despite of the bridge to Sweden, also a busy sea port with ferries back and forth “the Sound”.

Frederiksborg Castle and Open Air Museum

Frederiksborg Castle was built in the early decades of the 17th century by King Christian IV. It is the largest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia, and it incorporates the very best of Renaissance architecture. A fire broke out in 1859, and the greater part of the interior of the castle was destroyed. The fire was a disaster. Fortunately, the castle was rebuilt by J. C. Jacobsen, the owner of the Carlsberg Breweries. The castle chapel survived the fire and today stands as in Christian IV’s time. During absolutism, the Danish kings were anointed here. Today it is a parish church, with ecclesiastical acts such as worship, baptisms, confirmations and weddings. The Open Air Museum – living history This museum is one of the largest open air museums in the world. You will experience living history when you walk into old farmer houses from all over Denmark and meet people from the past. The place has many hands-on activities and is very suitable for families

Louisiana and the Karen Blixen Museum

Louisiana – Museum of Modern Art Located with a fantastic view to the Sound, this museum is the perfect surroundings for modern art. The collection covers the period from 1945 to the present and includes almost every genre – with an emphasis on painting and sculpture. The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is a leading international art museum and an absolute top attraction in Denmark. Art, nature and architecture combine in a total experience that attracts guests from Denmark and from all over the world year-round.

Permanent highlights include the Giacometti Hall, the Jorn Room and the Kusama Installation. The sculpture park is also a major feature of any visit to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, no matter the time of year. It is a varied and exciting exhibition of the collection’s approx. 60 sculptures. You will fx experience Jean Arp, Calder, Miro and Henry Moore. In the museum’s store, you will find a large and inspiring selection of new and classic items emphasising Danish and Scandinavian design. Just 15 minutes from Louisiana you will find the small and very authentic home of Karen Blixen. Karen Blixen is one of Denmark’s most well known authors. Many will know Karen Blixen from the movie "Out of Africa", where Meryl Streep playes the leading role. Because it is Karen that has written Out of Africa and Seven Gothic Tales. In the city of Rungsted you can visit her private home and explore her fascinating life story. Karen spent 17 years in Kenya and the African life style had a huge influence on her life. The rooms are almost exactly as Karen Blixen decorated and arranged them, giving a vivid impression of the writer’s day-to-day surroundings. Karen Blixen was also a fantastic cook and with her extensive knowledge of French cuisine in particular, she wrote Babette's Feast.

During the 4 hour walk we stopped at the palace and learned about Royal family, visited university, some historic churches, learned about history of Jewish community in Denmark and other sites (sorry, little Mermaid was not on our agenda).
