We went to see the impressive Frederiksborg Castle in Hellirød which had to be rebuilt after a monarch set it alight because his mistress felt cold. An important place for Denmark and its nobility - the large chapel had plaques for people honoured by Denmark. The gardens made me think of Wonderland in Once Upon A Time.

We also saw the outside of Kronborg Castle which became Elsinore for Shakespeare's "Hamlet" despite the historical Hamlet living centuries earlier. The Shakespeare 'connection' is well emphasized. The area is adjusting to life after heavy industry.

We also had a quick visit to try and see the Little Mermaid despite a lot of competing tourists. Happily she was her normal colour after various acts of recent vandalisation.
