Kronborg Castle, Denmark

After thanking our Swedish hosts one last time we headed to Denmark via a short ferry. On the Denmark side is the almost mythical Kronborg castle which among other things was the setting for Hamlet.

Kronborg Castle

Rebuilt after a fire in the mid 17th Century the castle is a sprawling museum of tapestries, minimally lit crawlspaces some so dark you need a flashlight, and a statue that supposedly comes to life whenever Denmark is threatened. It even has a moat (how cool is that?).  With all that it is hard to imagine a Medieval Times doing well anywhere in Denmark.

After the castle we stumbled south toward Copenhagen. Like a fed bear we have lost most of our gathering instinct so it might take a few nights before we are able to feed ourselves. Until then does anyone know of any Danish relatives we can crash with?
