The historic town of Hillerød was the royals’ preferred holiday destination for over 400 years. Kings hunted frequently in Gribskov and held functions in the town’s castles and that’s the reason why there is a “kings’ road” (Kongevejen) all the way from Copenhagen to Hillerød.
Here is North Sealand's largest trade and shopping centre. The castle town has over 200 exciting shops, so whether you are looking for the popular chains or the small "crooked" shop, there is a guarantee of temptations in the town by the castle lake.

Today, the town’s beautiful landmark, Frederiksborg Castle, is still in the heart of Hillerød. At the castle, you can take leisurely walks in the romantic castle gardens
featuring a lake and brook. Experience Frederik II’s Bath House from 1580 and Countess Danners Norwegianinspired cabin on Louise’s Island.
Today, Hillerød is still a city where life is enjoyed. 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 vibrant town where new stories are constantly emerging.
When it’s time for lunch, you can take a well-earned break at the cosy Café Havehuset, which is located in a historic building in the heart of the wonderful Frederiksborg Castle Gardens. The menu offers coffee, cake and Danish open sandwiches.
