Fredensborg Palace and the Palace Gardens are the town’s main attractions. You can visit the palace gardens throughout the year, while the private garden, the orangery and parts of the palace can be visited on guided tours during the summer (generally all of July and the first week of August). On Slotsgade there are many beautiful historic houses and gardens, and Fredensborg Store Kro is also situated here.
When HM Queen Margrethe is in residence at the palace, a unit of the Royal Life Guards accompanies her, and you can see the changing of the guard ceremony every day at noon and the Life Guards on parade through the town every Thursday.
The town’s pedestrianised high street, Jernbanegade, connects the palace with the town centre, which boasts a vibrant shopping scene with many excellent speciality shops and supermarkets.
From the palace, Skipper Allé leads down to Lake Esrum and Skipperhuset, where you can join a boat excursion in the summer or rent a canoe or kayak.
