Hillerød, as something unique in Denmark, has a castle lake with a castle in the middle of the town. So when the town festival Hillerød Slotssø Byfest kicks off on the last weekend in August, activities on and at the Castle Lake naturally plays a role.

Expect entertaining regatta in historic longboats, children's race around the Castle Lake, a large food market for all taste buds and beliefs and lots of music and family-friendly entertainment with among other things amusement park, children's flea market and a giant sandbox on the square.

Historic longboats in a regatta on the lake

One of the highlights is a regatta with historic longboats, travaljer, on the Castle Lake. A travalje is a rather heavy, open work boat, which was part of the equipment on the warships in the 18th - 19th centuries. Companies, associations, political parties and civic teams are challenging each other in the beautiful boats about winning the prestigious price - good entertainment for the cheering spectators on the lake shore. In the evening, there is a big dining get-together where everyone can participate.

Food market for all tastes

At Posen, the city park on the lake shore, there is a large Food Court packed with food stalls. Enjoy all kinds of meals, from vegan food and spicy Indian food to hot dogs. Also, taste and buy locally produced organic goods for your preparation.

It's for children

The town festival is very much for children and Sunday will be busy with special family activities. Participate in the children's races around the Castle Lake or try pony trekking in the park. At the square, toys can change owners at the children’s flea market, and Ankers Tivoli amusement park provides a carousel tour.

The festival gathers the town

The activities gather around the town centre, the park, the pedestrian streets, SlotsArkaderne shopping mall, the Market Square and not least the Castle Lake.
