- Renaissance castle
north of Copenhagen.
Castle (Frederiksborg Slot) is located in the middle of the town
and is built on three islands in the castle lake. The oldest parts
of the castle were started in 1560 by King Frederik II, for whom
but most of what you see was put together between 1600-1620 and
rebuilt between 1860 and 1884 after a fire burnt it. The National
History Museum has been housed in the castle since 1878. Hillerød
is 25 kilometres north of Copenhagen, a 45 minute train ride.
