Outside the castle there is a large garden overseeing it.

The castle is beautiful and classic. Good use of the colour and pattern. A lot of craftwork too. I had visited quite a number of castle in Europe but this one is worth to visit. The last picture is the entrance hall to dinner room. Interesting colour matching.

We activated our Copenhage Card the next day and started our 3-day activities in Copenhagen area. The first day was a day of outing. We took an hour train to Hillerod. We went there to visit Frederiksborg Castle. This is the official introduction: Frederiksborg Castle is the largest Renaissance Castle in Scandinavia. The castle was built by King Christian IV in the early decades of the 17th century and incorporates the best of Renaissance architecture and craftsmanship. Now this castle is the national museum and a world heritage.

You need to take a 15 minute walk from rail station to the castle but part of the path is along the lake, which gives you a good view of the castle.

Foods in Copenhagen are generally very good, but the highly rated restaurants need early reservation. We went to have steak that night and we are satisfied from entree to dessert, wine too.

Nyhavn is the restaurant and hot tourist spot for clubbing / drinking. A bit like Venice or Amsterdam.

When we walked back to the city center from the little mermaid, we passed by the St Alban's Church and Gefionspringvandet. They are the church for the barrack.

we entered the Kastellet from south and exited at north. Close to the north entrance there is the landmark of the Copenhagen, that every one has seen this before. The size is not so big indeed, a bit dirty but lots of people taking pictures, including me.

To do all the sightseeing in Denmark grand Copenhagen area need more than 3 days. As you know, the cost of living in Denmark is very high so in order to save cost, we do recommend you use Copenhagen Card. This card can offer you free admission to almost every important sightseeing spots and museum in Copenhagen area. Besides, you can use the bus, train, metro, all transportation free. The card is not cheap but I did a calculation and found that this card can help me save up all the transportation cost, i.e. the admission fees that I have to pay for my visit are good enough to cover the cost of Copenhagen card.

Hence, we bought a 3-day card about 90 Euro and as you expect, we would squeeze all those tourist spots that need to pay admission fee into these 3 days. Therefore, on the first day we were in Copenhagen, we went to all sightseeing points that are admission free.  Grin

After we went to Frederiks Kirke, we walked to Kastellet, an old barrack for Denmark but it is still in operation today. They open a part of it for visitors. The barrack is in star sharp and guards are standing at the entrance. It is very quiet inside but nice and beautiful buildings are found.
