This is the summer home of the Danish Royal family and the queen was in residence the day we were there. We could only view it from a distance as you can only do tours in July and the first week of August. We did,...More

We travelled to Fredensborg via train from Copenhagen (via Helsingor - another amazing place in Denmark!) and although we arrived late in the day and the palace was already closed, we did not mind as the grounds were still open for inspection. What beautiful surrounds....More

We visited this palace on a day trip. It is very large so allow plenty of time. It helps if it isn't raining as it has extensive, beautiful grounds.

We took a guided tour that included the private gardens. The tour guides were wonderful! They told many interesting things that you would never have known walking through on your own. Since the palace is still used by the Royal Family, you see and hear...More

We came with a tour guide, not connected to the summer palace, but really enjoyed time on our own to wander the road down to the lake. Even though Denmark is hurting for rain, the grounds were lovely. It was nice that the Queen wasn't...More

I have been quite a few castles in both Denmark and Sweden - frankly they all kind blend into other. Take Amalienborg in Copenhagen it is beautiful with its view to the Opera House and The Marble Church, which are in a straight line with...More

The private garden of the Danish queen is a true marble. It is like danish design and architecture: minimalistic and unpretentious! It is not a royal garden made to show off. There is not a lot of gold and marble trying to make people small...More
