Northern Zealand’s coastline is 400 km long which provides plenty of opportunity for enjoying the sea and an ocean of interesting experiences. Away from the coast, fertile fields stretch across the landscape, interrupted only by beautiful nature areas and green forests.
In Northern Zealand, you find small seaside resorts with fine white sand beaches, cosy fishing villages and market towns full of specialty shops and old, cosy streets. Visit e.g. Tisvildeleje, Tibirke, Hornbæk or Gilleleje.
There is a string of sights and attractions spread all over Northern Zealand: Fredensborg Castle, where the queen often visits, and where the crown prince couple reside. Louisiana Art Museum in Humlebæk is a mecca for modern art. Kronborg Castle in Helsingør (Elsinore) was immortalized by Shakespeare in his famous tragedy about Hamlet. Frederiksborg Palace Gardens is located in Hillerød. It is a beautiful baroque garden with fountains, flowers and historic plants.
The area is full of gastronomic offerings and culinary events. The many exciting inns and restaurants of the area offer a diverse menu, where local produce and ingredients play an important part.
