Friday’s Weekly Travel Photo – Royal Gardens in Denmark

Frederiksborg Castle and Gardens

Located in the heart of the Danish city of Hillerød, the Frederiksborg Palatial complex and gardens offer a wonderful place to relax on a sunny Danish day.  I strongly suggest enjoying a delicious ice cream or afternoon picnic as part of your visit. The Palace sits on a small island in the middle of a large lake, while the gardens sprawl beautifully across the countryside immediately behind the castle. In addition to a variety of blooming flowers the gardens also feature beautifully patterned hedges, carefully manicured and lovingly nurtured.  Frederiksborg palace is hands down my favorite palace in Denmark, and one which I highly suggest exploring!

    The gardens look lovely. Pity I didn’t see this when I was in Denmark.

    Greetings,

      One of my favorite places in Denmark/the greater Copenhagen area! I like it much more than Kronborg castle, though both are worth visiting!
