Cultural beacons, strong history and unique cultural heritage

Get close to Danish history when the royal castles let you into a world of pomp, splendour, grandeur, and decay. Here are powerful tales of destiny and cultural heritage you won't want to miss. The castle gardens are like artistic green breathing holes, open to everyone, with garden art and inspiration for all those interested in gardening. The proximity to Copenhagen and the rich, varied nature have always attracted artists and creative forces.

Few other places in Denmark have a large concentration of art and cultural experiences. Here you can experience international beacons in modern art and architecture and be surprised by distinguished art collections. Discover small interesting galleries and talented artisans who open their workshops.

Without food and drink

Do not forget the most important thing: You must taste North Zealand: the good life, the excellent food, the good drinks and the unforgettable experiences. When you want to satisfy your hunger, you can enjoy the food and cosiness in one of the authentic harbour towns or one of the two castle towns. The local food producers supply fresh ingredients with juice, power and flavour grown and bred with respect for craftsmanship and animal welfare. Find them in farm shops, harvest markets, and selected restaurants in North Zealand. 

A strong and unique cultural heritage

You get close to Denmark’s history when you get access to three royal palaces. Here, you enter a world of pomp and circumstance, greatness and despair. Do not miss out on the strong tales of destiny and unique cultural heritage. The palace gardens are green cultural experiences where you can breathe freely. They are open to the public who can walk around amazing landscape designs. An inspiration to all garden enthusiasts.
