Fredensborg Castle

Frederiksborg Castle


Leaving Copenhagen early we headed north to the North Zealand area of Denmark to do a popular loop which covers Frediksborg Castle, Kronberg Castle and Fredensborg Palace.

From Kronberg Castle you can see straight across the Oresund to Sweden. Being around the right time, Phil & I were keeping a close eye out for any Volvo boats making their way to the finish line in Gothenburg but to no avail!

Our next stop was the Fredensborg Castle where the Danish royal family resides in summer. The 18th century mansion wasn't accessible but the royal gardens where Australian Princess Mary often walks baby Christian was open to the public. A quick stop at the bakery for lovely fresh bread & Danish's and we headed onto Frederiksborg Castle, a rather enormous and impressive castle that spans across 3 islands.

From here we drove onto another island of Denmark & stayed overnight in Odense, the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen. Pizza, being the only thing open, was on the menu tonight and was a good accompaniment to the Brazil - Australia game... the pizza went down better than the result...
