Photos of Denmark (June 2017)

Images of Kronborg Castle, the M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark, and Frederiksborg Castle in Denmark – taken in June 2017.

“Kronborg is a castle and stronghold in the town of Helsingør. Immortalised as Elsinore in William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet. The castle is situated on the extreme northeastern tip of the island of Zealand at the narrowest point of the Øresund, the sound between present Denmark and the provinces of present Sweden that were also Danish at the time the castle was built.

“The M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark (Danish: M/S Museet for Søfart), operated by a private foundation since 1915, was for the first 97 years located at Kronborg Castle in Helsingør, Denmark. Its collections cover Danish trade and shipping from 1400 to the present day. In 2013, the museum moved into new underground premises designed by Bjarke Ingels Group around a former dry dock.

“Frederiksborg Castle is a palatial complex in Hillerød. It was built as a royal residence for King Christian IV of Denmark-Norway in the early 17th century, replacing an older castle acquired by Frederick II and becoming the largest Renaissance residence in Scandinavia. Situated on three islets in the Slotssøen (castle lake), it is adjoined by a large formal garden in the Baroque style.”
