easy to access around the cruise port area. Interesting and picturesque old stone buildings. Courtyard area easy to access but other than buildings not a lot there. Worth a short visit.

The medieval fortress is an interesting feature that overlooks the harbor. The entrance is free and worth a visit.

Great medieval building hiding many historical events... The inside does not show much, but is worth a visit anyway.

On the fortress property, there is a very powerful statue to the King. It is as smooth as this man was in life. He came to the throne, a former Danish prince, and navigated his newly adopted country away and from under Nazi influence. He...More
