Kronberg Castle in Helsingor

“For many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka

Kronberg Castle in Helsingor is said to be the castle described in the famous Shakespeare’s play “Hamlet”. The castle overlooks the coast of Sweden and the town of Helsingborg, which is fully visible from the castle walls.  Beautiful surroundings of the castle do not take away the grandeur of its rooms and the horror of its underground catacombs.

The impressive dark statue of Holger Danske sitting in the catacombs of the castle will impress anyone seeing this impressive wise man.

On the way out of the castle we were surprised by seeing one of the rarest birds walking quietly in the castle’s moat – a grey heron.
