  • The castle is beautiful and maintained well. Descriptions under each room on whom/why/how is mentioned in detail. It will take around 3-4 hours to see the castle with medium interest level. There is a room in castle on the ground floor where one can eat their packed lunch. Although there is also a restaurant and cafe inside and outside the castle. Ticket cost is 100 krona, and if you visit the maritime museum a discount of 25% is offered.
  • Amazing experience! Close to Copenhagen by train. So if you have time then do visit n also the cute shopping street. Beautifully decorated for Christmas.
