Copenhagen: Castles, Cathedral, and Viking Ships Tour

Copenhagen: Castles, Cathedral, and Viking Ships 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.

The day trip is great, it includes a lot of places that can't be done if you're on your own and it incluses all entries. the guide is great and really helpfull. i recomend the trip if you want to see 2 castles and some other great places in one day 😊

We had the best Hamlet tour ever! Sillas was the most amazing guide; he always had a smile on his face, made the funniest jokes, knew all the history of each stop, and made the experience in Copenhagen excellent. Would 10/10 recommend this tour.

Our guide Silleas (sorry if I butcher his name), is very knowledgeable and friendly. Small group which facilitates the excursion and allows us to see more or ask more questions of the guide.

Absolutely amazing excursion. Saw more than expected. The guide Zilos was very informative and funny. Strongly recommend

Excellent trip! If you love history this is the one for you! Chris, our tour guide, was outstanding!
