Elsinore Castle

Highly recommended
Commanding a peninsula that juts out into the Øresund, Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO site, was famously chosen by Shakespeare as the setting for Hamlet. It is also highly symbolic of Danish maritime power, personified by the legendary Ogier the Dane, who is said to haunt the depths, where he lies. Defying the sea by its impressive mass and surrounded by deep moats, it contains some superb rooms, including the chapel, King's and Queen's chambers and ballroom.
