Elsinore, Klampenborg & Lyngby

Part of Greater Copenhagen North

Houses close to water with a city in the background.

Helsingør, Elsinore in English, with its picturesque, cobbled streets, is located right by the sea, just 40 minutes from Copenhagen. It is home to Kronborg Castle, world-famous from Shakespeare's Hamlet and one of northern Europe's most important Renaissance castles and dominates the coastal town. The new cultural harbour includes the modern M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark and connects the castle with the city centre.

The main attraction in Klampenborg is Bakken, the oldest amusement park in the world. Close by is Dyrehaven, a wonderful green park perfect for picnics. If you go on the boat trip Baadfarten you should also pay a visit to the Open-Air Museum Old Denmark.
