Show on map
The Frederiksborg Castle is a palace complex in Hillerød to the North from Copenhagen. The castle was built in the XVII century and became the largest Renaissance royal residence in Scandinavia. The complex is located on the three islands in the Slotssøen lake and is surrounded by a baroque park.
Today, Frederiksborg houses the Museum of National History of Denmark, where guests can find a large collection of portrait paintings, visit the chapel, and several interior rooms.
In the old wine cellar of the castle there is a special exposition called the Danish history for children, where children can learn about the childhood of King Christian IV, try writing with feather and ink, and dress up in one of the beautiful renaissance gowns.
The museum is open daily, from April to October - 10:00 to 17:00, and from November to March - 11:00 to 15:00.
