In Helsingør, known also by its english name, Elsinore, there is the Kronborg castle, famous worldwide for being the location of the action of Hamlet, the play by William Shakespeare. As a curiosity, Shakespeare never visited this place, so all the descriptions he provides are openly inaccurate.
Not far away, and unfairly overshadowed by its most famous neighbour, we can find the Frederiksborg castle, in Hillerød, which seems quite more spectacular. Inmense, surrounded by remarkable gardens, and settled on three islands on an artificial lake, I am sure this castle will easily fulfill our expectations.
After quite some kilometers, in the evening we will arrive at Lübeck, already in Germany. Lübeck is an hanseatic city that we did already visit last year. We liked it a lot, so we will the chance to go again since it is in the middle of the way.
After having dinner and whatever we are going to do in Lübeck, we have the intention to drive as many kilometers we can to get closer to the dutch border, even if it means to get deep into the night. This, anyway, will depend on the moment.
