Things to do
-Castles: The small city of Elsinore which sits on the north-eastern tip of Denmark grew from a simple trading post to one of the most important cities of the country. Testament to this importance is seen in such structures as the Kronborg Castle. It was constructed originally by King Eric of Pomerania in 1420 who christened it ‘Krogen’. King Frederick II rebuilt it some years later and the name was subsequently changed to Kronborg. One of the castle’s hidden gems is the statue of Holger Danske. Tourists will also want to see the Fredensborg Castle where the royal family lives. Though they won’t be allowed inside, they can tour its beautiful gardens.
-Museums: Zealand’s rich heritage is also housed in an array of interesting museums such as the Toy Museum of North Zealand. Here visitors of any age can find on display a toy they could have played with in their childhood. Art lovers will not want to pass up the chance to visit the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and view the abstract sculptures that are scattered over its lush green park.
