Originally built by King Erik VII in the 1400's, at the narrowest point between Denmark & Sweden. Helsingborg in Sweden is clearly visible across the water just 4km away. In the 1570's King Frederick II extended the castle with money gained from taxing every ship which passed this narrow strait. There is a choice of tickets when you visit. The large ticket costs 80 dkk and give access to the royal apartments, church, casemates and ballroom. The small 40 dkk ticket just does the castle part. Personally I found the casemates and the dimly lit basement corridors a lot more interesting than the royal apartments. If you choose to do both - highlights of the royal apartments are the church and Europe's longest hall. The Castle is World Heritage listed.
