A place of pilgrimage for Shakespearean scholars from around the world, Kronborg represents one of Europe's most recognizable Renaissance structures and is a World Heritage Site. Built in the 1420s as a stronghold for King Eric VII, the castle shot to fame in the early 17th century when it inspired Shakespeare to use it as a setting for "Hamlet." Follow in Hamlet's footsteps in the soldier's quarters and storerooms, which stretch beneath the castle and contain a famed statue of the legendary Viking chief Holger the Dane. Planning Helsingoer trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

  • Loved taking the time to look at all of the tapestries, read the information posted around the castle, and admire the history with the walls. Self paced visit, which gave me all the time to enjoy...

  • The castle is very interesting and filled with history. I really am thankful for the amazing staff there. They are very good with speaking English and are very welcoming to everyone. Me and my group had a tour guide and he was incredibly funny and interesting. He told us a lot of things I didn’t know about the castles history.
  • Super entertaining castle for kids as well as a very intriguing museum. The story laid put by the staff for the kids to follow was very well thought out and immersive, they all really enjoyed it! It was also interesting to learn about the rich history of this UNESCO site!
