The Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle
Frederiksborg Castle is beautifully situated on three small islets in the castle lake in Hillerød. Inside the castle walls, great cultural experiences await the whole family, while the beautiful natural surroundings invite you to peaceful garden walks and sailing trips. The Danish King Christian 4th built Frederiksborg Castle at the beginning of the 17th century, and it is the largest renaissance construction in Scandinavia. The new buildings were meant to enhance and strengthen the position of Christian 4th as a powerful European monarch. Therefore the castle is richly ornamented with symbolic and decorative elements.
