  • Copenhagen: Roskilde, Frederiksborg & Kronborg Day Tour

    1. Copenhagen: Roskilde, Frederiksborg & Kronborg Day Tour

    Enjoy a scenic sightseeing tour of North Sealand on an 8.5-hour excursion from Copenhagen, and visit the royal monuments of Kronborg Castle and Frederiksborg Castle and the World Heritage site of Roskilde Cathedral.

    Really great tour if you are trying to see a lot in one day. This tour takes you to 4 locations. Our guide was absolutely fantastic. It will feel a little rushed if you are someone who wants to really get into the weeds, then this may not be for you. However, I found the time at all locations to be adequate enough to appease my appetite. The only location where I found that a little more time may have been nice was the cathedral, but it was closing early that day. Overall, the price may seem a little high but the value is how much time you save and having direct transportation to and from the locations. (The bonus was the wonderful guide who answered all questions about Danish culture).
