Arrangements at Kronborg Castle

Kronborg - the exclusive framework of your next arrangement
Kronborg was built to demonstrate power and prosperity of the kingdom. The everyday life at the castle was characterized by luxurious parties, and the great architecture served as framework around the king and his Court life. Here, the king was staged in extreme luxury, and that inspired Shakespeare to place his famous act, Hamlet, at the castle in Helsingør. In 2000 Kronborg was entered on Unesco’s World Heritage List.

Reception or dinner
Kronborg has opened the doors and we are happy to give you the opportunity to explore this unique framework. It is now possible to book parts of the castle and be king & queen for a day - even outside normal opening hours. Every arrangement includes a special guided tour of the castle. You will be given a tour of the otherwise closed off towers or experience the horrible casemates.
