Frederiksborg Castle rises majestically above a peaceful lake, situated in lush surroundings on a little Renaissance island of its own. Unlike other castles, it offers much more than just royal chambers and ball rooms. This is where the Museum of National History has resided since the 1800s, offering visitors a glimpse of the people and events that helped shape a nation. This is a place with activities for old and young alike. In the basement children can dress up in historical costumes and learn more about the childhood of the famous Danish king Christian IV, while parents can indulge in historical artifacts.
