Frederiksborg and its surroundings
Frederiksborg Castle is the largest Renaissance complex in the Nordic countries. Outside you find the Frederiksborg Castle Garden with the Bath House Castle, the Baroque Garden and the Landscape Garden, as well as the Castle Lake with the small ferry M/S Frederiksborg. Looking further afield, Frederiksborg is located right at the entrance to the National Park Kongernes Nordsjælland and within cycling distance to Store Dyrehave, which includes the par force hunting landscape where the kings went hunting, now a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Frederiksborg Castle is open every day all year round. Tickets to the museum are valid for the whole day, making it easy to take a break during your museum visit to enjoy the Castle Gardens. The museum’s restaurant is located in scenic surroundings outside the main castle.
The small ferry sails every 30 minutes from different spots around the lake. The tour is a 25 minute tour with excellent view to the castle and its beautiful surroundings. A walk around the Castle lake takes approximately 30 minutes. Enjoy very nice ice cream at the City Square of Hillerød or the local playground between the Castle and City Square. From both the playground and the City Square, there is a fabulous view to Frederiksborg Castle.
Looking for long term parking? That’s a very good idea! We have a spot for free long term parking next to the Baroque Garden. Take a look at the parking opportunities.
In the summer of 2023, two special exhibitions will supplement the Museum of National History’s extensive collection.
