Located on a strategically important site between Denmark and Sweden, the Royal castle is of immense symbolic value to the Danish people and played a key role in the history of northern Europe in the 16th-18th centuries. It has remained intact to the present day and is world-renowned as Elsinore, the setting of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
