Hillerød - The castle town in the green

With Frederiksborg Castle as its historical landmark, Denmark’s second-largest forest as a neighbour and a thriving commercial life in the city centre, Hillerød is the ideal starting point for combining culture, outdoor experiences and shopping.

 

Hillerød is the heart of North Sealand. A vibrant city with vital connections to the entire region: historically, in our time, and in terms of traffic itself.

Historically, Hillerød was the sanctuary of the kings – here they enjoyed life and participated in their favourite sport, hunting, which is why the largest Renaissance castle in the Nordic region, Frederiksborg, is located here, as is the UNESCO World Heritage list par force hunting landscape of North Sealand.

Today, Hillerød is still a city where life is enjoyed to the fullest. Within easy reach of Copenhagen, but far enough away that you are close to nature and can breathe freely. A city where history is alive because it is part of everyday life. And a dynamic city where new stories are constantly emerging.

Two absolutely prime attractions in North Sealand

Frederiksborg Castle and the Baroque Garden are two experiences you won’t want to miss. Frederiksborg is the largest Renaissance castle in the Nordic region, a genuine fairy tale castle with pomp and splendour to awaken the imaginations of children and adults alike. The castle park consists of several beautiful spaces of which the formal Baroque Garden is the star attraction. Here you can appreciate the art of gardening in a class by itself, with winding hedges, shaped royal monograms and splashing cascades that fall on terraces down to the Castle Lake.
