Accompanying person tours


Visit Castles outside Copenhagen and experience historic Denmark

The Accompanying persons’ Tour aims to show you some of the best historic sites outside Copenhagen whilst driving along the coast and through beautiful countryside. We aim to give you a sense of rural Denmark and an opportunity to see typical Danish historic towns whilst visiting famous historic castles, our world UNESCO heritage Cathedral and delving back to the time of the Vikings. The end of June is arguably the best time to visit Denmark when we experience the longest days of the year with maximum sunlight and often lovely weather to match.

Monday, 27th June: North Sealand Castle Tour

On Monday, 28th June, we will take the coastal road North out of Copenhagen to Helsingør, a traditional coastal town and the “gateway to the Baltic.” Helsingør looks out over the waters of “Øresund” to Sweden and is a strategic point to place a castle. Ships passing into the Baltic Sea paid tolls at Kronborg Castle which was founded in 1420, and Helsingør was once one of the most important towns in Europe. In 2000, Kronborg Castle became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was also the setting for Shakespeare’s play “Hamlet” which he called Elsinor. We will go back in time and be shown around the castle by Horatio, Hamlet’s trusted friend!

We will then be ready for a well- deserved typical Danish lunch at an idyllic setting at a thatched cottage restaurant in the woods by a lake not far from Helsingør. The cottage mill is renovated from the days when it was part of a small rifle factory. The two water wheels can still be seen on the outside. We hope for good weather to be able to enjoy sitting outside by the small lake.

Then we will continue our journey along the Margarita route (the scenic route) to Fredensborg, the Queen’s summer residence, where we will have a photo stop before continuing to Hillerød, home to Frederiksborg Castle, founded in 1562. It was finished in 1620. It is home to a unique collection of plaques in honour of special guests who have visited Denmark. You will no doubt recognize a few names on the wall of fame! It also has lovely recently redesigned Baroque style gardens. We will have a guided tour of the palace as well as an opportunity to visit the gardens before returning to Copenhagen to enjoy the famous pancakes at the Town Hall.

Wednesday, 29th June: Roskilde Region and Sailing in Roskilde Fjord

On this day, we will take the opportunity to visit Roskilde, to the West of Copenhagen. Roskilde was the capital city of Denmark and Southern Sweden until 1443 and has a thousand years of history behind it. It is home to Roskilde Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage site where many former Kings and Queens are buried, including Margarethe the First who was Queen of Norway, Sweden and Denmark at the time.

We will have a tour of the Cathedral after lunch, once we have enjoyed the land of the Vikings, by exploring the various Viking workshops next to the Viking Ship Museum on the banks of the Roskilde Fjord. The Viking Ship museum houses ships found in the fjord.

Our lunch on this day will be at a traditional Danish restaurant in the town. We will return to Copenhagen in time for you to return to your hotel before the evening meal at the old University.
