Although I liked everywhere we visited I was particularly enthralled with Frederiksborg located about 1 hour by train outside Copenhagan.
It is the largest Renaissance palace in Scandinavia.
The oldest parts of the castle date back to 1560, and were built by King Frederick II, after whom the palace is named.
Most of the current palace was built from 1602 to 1620 by Christian IV and follows the Dutch style favoured by Christian IV for his new buildings in Copenhagen.
After Christian IV's death in 1648, the palace was used mainly for ceremonial events
The castle features heavily ornamented doors.
