THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WALK TO<br />

FREDERIKSBORG CASTLE<br />

No matter the season, the walk along Slotssøen is the most beautiful way from Hillerød Station<br />

to a visit to Frederiksborg Castle and its extensive gardens.<br />

From the station square at Hillerød Station, cross Nordre Jernbanevej and continue down<br />

Vibekevej, Østergade, and Kannikegade to Hillerød Torv. Here you will be greeted by Frederik<br />

VII, who stands proudly on his pedestal overlooking his city and Frederiksborg Castle, where<br />

he lived with Countess Danner until the castle burned down in 1859.<br />

Along Søstien to the Castle and Back through the City<br />

From the square, follow Søstien eastwards. From the lakeshore, there is a beautiful view over<br />

the water and the Baroque Garden, which gradually comes into view.<br />

The castle can appear completely different depending on the weather. On a sunny summer<br />

day, the castle is reflected in the lake. On an autumn day with mist and fog, only the spires and<br />

walls are visible, and on a clear frosty winter day with snow, it all looks like something from a<br />

fairy tale. Frederiksborg Castle majestically sits on three small islands in the middle of<br />

Slotssøen and is known as "the largest Renaissance complex in the Nordic countries" with its<br />

impressive buildings, beautiful Baroque Garden, and Castle Park.<br />

Set aside 2-3 hours to explore the castle and its gardens. On the way back, walk along the<br />

beautiful new cobblestone pedestrian street through Hillerød city center to Torvet with the<br />

statue of Frederik VII. From here, take the same route back towards Hillerød Station.<br />
