Hillerød - Castle town & shopping center
With Frederiksborg Castle as its historical landmark and thriving commercial life in the city centre, Hillerød is the ideal starting point for combining shopping, culture and outdoor experiences.
There is a very special feeling and energy in the towns of North Sealand. Location, nature, history and transport routes have determined the development of the towns and resulted in the interesting places they are today. Some of them have arisen around royal palaces, other picture the early Danish industrial history and many have a past as fishing hamlets along Oresund and the North Coast. Go exploring today’s modern towns which are full of experiences with shopping, delicious food and not least culture and history.
Gilleleje, Sealand’s most northerly point offers a busy commercial life with many exciting shops, cosy cafés and good restaurants. The fishing harbour and the beautiful cultural centre, Kulturhavn Gilleleje, are worthy attractions with deep roots in local life. Together it´s worth a visit....
At the entrance from the Kattegat to Isefjord and Roskilde fjord is the charming and authentic port town of Hundested. Hundested has a unique blend of modern cultural town and an active commercial port, where fishing boats arrive with the day's fresh catch in the early morning hours.
Beautifully located between Arresø and Roskilde Fjord, Frederiksværk is also known as “Little Venice” because of its canal and numerous iconic bridges. The old houses in the streets and alleyways bear witness to the town’s past as Denmark’s first industrial centre. But it offers much more....
Sand, as far as the eye can see, and clear blue-green water that tempts for a dip. Large, sun-warmed stones in the beach dike because Liseleje has slightly more hours of sunshine than most places in the country. It's a beach holiday like in the old days.
Nivaa is located on the wide, shallow Nivaa Bay on the Øresund Coast. The area is home to rich birdlife, an idyllic harbour and a lovely beach park. The city was once an industrial centre with brickyards, and today it is known for its Ring Oven and the Nivaagaard Collection.
By Oresund and along the North Coast and its backing you find cosy, small towns – each of which has a charm of its own.
