Rosenborg and Frederiksborg.

If I only had time for one, I'd pick Frederiksborg in Hillerød.

Heroneya, were you not impressed with Kronberg castle? Is two hours enough to visit Kronberg? I need to be in Helsingbor (Sweden?) by 12:30 to meet someone. If I got to Kronberg as it opens, that should be sufficient?

Didn't mean to hijack the thread. Apologies.

Not really impressed, no. But mainly, because I've being travelling all my life to visit castles all over Europe, ever since I was child. I've seen many and castles made me move to Denmark (Egeskov castle). I find Frederiksborg being far more impressive than K and there is much more to see in Frederiksborg than Kronborg (which is more famous because of Shakespeare).

I agree with Hans: Rosenborg Castle. (I assume with only two days in Copenhagen, you will spend your time in central Copenagen.)

The best interiors are in Rosenborg and Frederiksborg but Kronborg is definitely worth a visit.

If you have 2 days you could visit them all, for instance:

Day one: first Rosenborg (which is in the town and won’t take a long time), later from the station of Norrepørt you can take the train to Helsingør and see Kronborg.

Day two : take the train to Hillerød and visit Frederiksborg (and the lovely gardens).


Day one: Rosenborg and more of Copenhagen.

Day two: You can a take an organised bus tour to see Frederiksborg and Kronborg and will also pass by the scenic costal road.

You can also do it yourself but it will take a longer time: visit Frederiksborg first and from Hillerød you can take a train to Helsingør and visit Kronborg, at least from outside (you can walk around the ramparts and enjoy the view and see the castle’s courtyard).
