A pleasant train ride away from homebase Copenhagen, this castle houses a very high quality museum of the history of the country that goes well beyond the Hamlet reference. Great educational displays and very informative staff made the visit a real treat...The site is breathtaking....More

The elsingor castle is also known also Kronborg castle or the Castle of Hamlet . Due to the famous banquets of king Frederik the second Shakespeare was inspired to chose this place as the scenery . Worth the visit

Nice exterior not very impressive on the inside. Its right next to the sea with a trench full of water encircling the castle with a lot of open space and grass for children to play. On the inside it is nothing much.

Maybe 3-4 hours. The time you spend inside the castle depends on your interest.
