Located in the town of Helsingor, Kronborg Castle is a short walk from the train station, and makes a nice day trip from Copenhagen. When entering the castle grounds, you will have to go through 2 gates, to get to the castle courtyard. From there, you can go to different parts of the castle.
You enter into a gift shop, which is where the entrances to both the Royal Apartments and Casements are located. And both of these are enough reason to check out the inside of the castle.
The Royal Apartments is a series of rooms, with period furniture and paintings on the wall or ceiling. Some of the rooms include the King's Chamber, Queen's Chamber, the Little Hall (the one with the tapestries), and the Ballroom. All are nice to look at. And all have English descriptions, making it more worthwhile.
The Casements are the underground part of the castle. With a vending machine for flashlights, that should tell you what kind of attraction this part is. There are 2 levels, with the upper one being the home of Holger the Dane, of Danish legends.
Then comes the lower level, which is an adventure in itself. It was where the soldiers stayed, getting ready in case the castle was attacked. Going through there, can be dangerous, as it is very dark, and only lit by small electric candles through the place. There are arrows pointing the way, but they can be hard to see. So you may need that flashlight, or use your mobile phone to find your way around. But really worth it, and fun!
There is also a Chapel, which is small and nothing really special. Plus you can go to the top of the tower, but I did not get to do that.
Also, walking around the castle is worth doing as well, as you get a good view of the castle itself, and the sea. Walking around the castle grounds is free, but you have to pay admission to enter into the castle itself.
Still, I think walking through the Casements and the Royal Apartments are enough reason to check out this place, and maybe even the tower, if you have a Copenhagen Card.
