North Sealand ROYAL DENMARK By museum curator Søren Frandsen The first castles in North Sealand were built in the Middle Ages. Søborg Castle was the principle royal castle from the 12th century and Gurre Castle was the principle royal castle during the reign of Valdemar IV (14th century). But it was during the reign of Frederik II that Monarchic North Sealand finally took on the form we recognise today. Royalty of that period had no conception of tourism or national parks. What drove Frederik II was his passion for hunting. The kings’ official residences were in Copenhagen but they came north whenever they could. By the 16th century, North Sealand was already known as the playground of kings. The area was given over to creativity, well-being, nature and leisure. Copenhagen’s green front garden was the place where kings could relax and enjoy life. And when kings wanted to play, that meant hunting. Created from hunting The forest was the king’s playground; his favourite recreational area. He designed animal parks where it was easier to rear and hunt game
and enjoy the Danish chase hunt; a sport where hunters drove red deer until the animals were exhausted, allowing the king to kill the prey. Frederik II (1534 – 1588) was the first king whose obsession for the sport led him to establish a hunting area in North Sealand. He saw the area’s hunting potential and immediately began to establish his royal hunting ground where he could indulge his hobby and allow the royal court to be self-sufficient in meat. Frederik II wanted the crown to expand its estate as much as possible and he achieved this through exchanges of property. The North Sealand noblemen more or less willingly exchanged their country estates and farms with the king. It took the king just 18 months to acquire five private estates and 350 farms in North Sealand. In 1574, the king’s chief negotiator, Herluf Trolle, was the last man who had to relinquish his property – Hillerødsholm – today known as Frederiksborg Castle. It became the king’s official residence in North Sealand. And anything that belonged to the king was the king’s forever. When the Danish constitution came into being in 1849, the popular Frederik VII signed the forests and the properties over to the state.

Experience the interactive exhibition, go on a guided tour in Hamlet’s footsteps and visit Holger Danske in the murky depths of the casemates.
There are few places in the world that are as richly steeped in as much drama and history as Kronborg. It’s where the deadly, cannon-clad fortress meets the lavish Renaissance castle, and where Hamlet’s spirit haunts the hallways. So it comes as no surprise that this magical place has been listed as a world heritage site! Experience one of Denmark’s main attractions Thundering horses’ hooves, whinnying steeds - and cannon balls flying past your head! The dramatic acoustic imagery hits you almost as soon as you set foot on the first stronghold bridge into Kronborg. Then over another bridge and through a large gateway in the rampart: There, surrounded by the wide ramparts stands Kronborg with its towers, spires and copper roofs. Frederik II, the father of Christian IV, built the castle in1574-1585 on the narrowest part of the Sound – the Renaissance’s version of a modern motorway. Trade ships from all over the world sailed past here, each having to pay a toll to the king.
Casemates, Holger and Hamlet A damp, stale odour clings to the air as you make your way down the steps to the casemates under the castle. In a labyrinth of murky passages and rooms, you’ll discover the gloomier parts of the castle: dungeons, storerooms and the soldiers’ quarters. Here sits Holger Danske; at the ready to wake and take action if Denmark needs his fighting skills. So where does Hamlet fit into the picture then? William Shakespeare possibly heard or read about the legendary Danish prince, and as Kronborg was already famous in Europe in the Renaissance period, he probably thought it was Hamlet’s castle. The largest Great Hall in the Nordics Inside the castle, there’s an interactive exhibition explaining its history; all the gold the tolls bought, how the castle was used in Christian IV’s childhood and how the Swedes plundered the castle. And in one of the rooms you’ll be completely engulfed by the strangely fascinating flames from the Fire of Kronborg in 1629. A chequered floor stretches endlessly in the
Great Hall, which at 62m in length makes it the longest in the Nordic region. On the walls further on, you can admire the huge woven tapestries, which Frederik II proudly used to display his ancestors. August: the month of Hamlet Kronborg becomes especially lively during the school holidays, when there’s a wealth of activities on offer. Over the summer months and particularly in August, Hamlet becomes the focal point of what’s going on: The guided tour “In the footsteps of Hamlet,” Hamlet puppet show, and the famous Hamlet play. An all-day experience You could probably see most of Kronborg in less than an hour, but there’s enough to keep you busy for a whole day. Especially if you also visit the new M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark, designed by the world-famous architects Bjarke Ingels Group. Just follow the ramp down to the old dry dock that is located outside Kronborg’s ramparts on Culture Harbour Kronborg. 7
Fredensborg Palace may be rather more modest than its famous French counterpart, but here you can enjoy a peaceful atmosphere without fear of overcrowding.
EXPERIENCE THE POMP AND CEREMONY FROM THE 18TH CENTURY Denmark’s largest baroque garden has just been renovated with endless rows of avenue trees, elaborately patterned grass and gravel surfaces and fabulous sculptures and lavish monuments. Together with the surrounding scenic landscape, this makes Fredensborg Palace one of the main attractions in the area all year round.
Experience one of the Queen’s favourite palaces Fredensborg Palace by Lake Esrum in North Sealand is the royal couple’s most frequented residence during the spring and autumn months. The beautiful rooms and halls often form the setting for major official state visits and royal events. Many of the large royal parties and celebrations are hosted here. State leaders on official visits are received here from all over the world and foreign ambassadors submit their official credentials to the Danish Queen at the palace. A meeting place for the crowned heads of Europe The palace enjoyed its heyday during the reign of Christian IX, who became known as the fatherin-law of Europe. In the late 1800s, he gathered royals from far and near at the palace. His children were given prominent positions in the European royal houses, e.g. Alexandra was married to Edward VII of England, Dagmar with Alexan-
der III of Russia and Vilhelm was crowned King of Greece under the name Georg I. “Palace of Peace” Between the years 1720-26, the architect and head gardener J.C. Krieger created a palace complex, comprising a small main palace with a dome and lanterns and an octagonal courtyard. Frederik IV named the white, elegant baroque palace “Fredensborg” to commemorate the Great Northern War that ended in 1720. In the following decades, the palace was extended several times, but still appears as a complete architectural entity. See the palace halls In the summer months of July and early August when the royal couple are not in residence, the palace halls are open for guided tours. You can see the Dome Hall, where many official dinners take place, the Garden Room and a number of
other representative rooms. Fredensborg’s wellpreserved palace chapel is also included in the tour, where many royals including Queen Margrethe and Prince Nikolai have been confirmed. Palace garden with magnificent grounds The impressive Fredensborg Palace Gardens are some of Denmark’s largest historic gardens. They were laid out at the same time the palace was built, but were later converted to French Baroque style in 1759-69. During this time, the sculptor John Wiedewelt created many sculptures, including the magnificent double avenue, Brede Allé. Nordmandsdalen, with its 70 sandstone statues of Norwegian and Faroese farmers and fishermen, has its own unique spirit. Adjacent to the palace is the Royal private garden, the Orangery and the historic kitchen garden, which supplies fresh flowers and vegetables to the royal household. These three areas are only open to the public in July and early Au-
gust. The rest of the gardens, including the finest baroque landscaping in Denmark have free admission all year round Summer shop with royal plants The Orangery dates from 1995 and houses a summer shop where the Agency for Palaces and Cultural Properties sells plants that have been left over from the royal nurseries and seedlings from the garden. Take screen lilies, geraniums and myrtles home as a special souvenir from Fredensborg Palace Gardens. Plant sales are exclusively for guests who are on summer tours at Fredensborg. Fredensborg is often viewed as Denmark’s Versailles. It may well be more modest, but there is no fear of overcrowding, and it possesses a very special and unique atmosphere and an eternal promise of peace. See more at www.slke.dk or www.kongehuset.dk.
FREDERIKSBORG CASTLE The Museum of National History
Frederiksborg Castle and its Baroque Garden are picturesquely located on the banks of the castle lake in Hillerød. This unique Renaissance castle was built by Christian IV at the beginning of the 17th century to signify his position as a powerful North European monarch. Evidence of this can be seen in the abundance of symbolic and decorative elements, such as the statues and reliefs, the impressive Neptune Fountain and the marble gallery in The King’s Wing. The castle was no longer a royal residence in the 18th century but was still used for official royal functions. Kings were anointed in the castle church during the period of absolute monarchy in Denmark (1660–1848), and a wave of national romanticism in the 19th century resulted in the castle becoming a national memorial. The Museum of National History A terrible fire in 1859 destroyed a great deal of the castle interior. Reconstruction
of the castle was financed by national subscriptions, special arts lotteries and generous private donations. J.C. Jacobsen, founder of the Carlsberg Group brewing company, played an active role in the project and in 1877 he proposed the castle should be the location for a Museum of National History. He donated resources to the project and the museum was created as part of the Carlsberg Foundation, which still runs and funds the museum. The museum records 500 years of Danish history, containing history painting, portraits, furniture and art manufacture, set in the many halls and rooms of the castle, such as the Castle Church, the Audience Chamber and the Great Hall. There are changing exhibitions, fixed tours on Sundays and seasonal activities for children, as the museum encourages people to engage in the past and put Denmark’s history into perspective.

ESRUM KLOSTER & MØLLEGÅRD
Room for experiences - time for immersion Esrum Kloster & Møllegård offers more than 800 years of history, stunning nature and loads of great experiences. The Monks’ North Sealand For more than 800 years, Esrum Kloster has been nestled deep in the heart of North Sealand. Ever since the French Cistercian monks built an abbey in the middle of the most idyllic nature with meadows, streams, forests and lakes. Over almost 500 years, the monks filled Esrum with their prayers and work, and Esrum Kloster became an important asset and was one of the largest buildings on Nordic territory. The monks made a solid imprint on North Sealand, which is still very visible, both in terms of its landscape and historic value. The Kings’ Esrum After the reformation, the abbey and its impressive landholdings was taken over by the Crown. And it was greatly valued indeed by the Danish kings. Frederik II reserved a wing of the abbey as his hunting lodge. Christian IV moved the stream that meandered its way over the meadow, a few metres to the east and built a windmill by Møllegården, and Christian V used Esrum both as a stud farm and as a base for hunting with hounds in Gribskov. And even today the Danish royal family are known to pass by from time to time. Exhibitions, events, markets, culinary experiences, hiking trips ... At Esrum you can sit down and relax with a packed lunch and just enjoy the peace in 12
the abbey gardens, or you can visit one of the exhibitions in the abbey, wander round the Medieval Market, Harvest Market or Abbey Christmas Market, listen to interesting talks, eat your way through authentic medieval banquets or just indulge in a delicious Nordic lunch dish, buy yourself something exciting from the abbey or coffee shop, rent a bike and ride around the inspiring nature and culture, or why not let the whole experience settle nicely in a glass of frothy, ice-cold abbey beer. The Pilgrims’ Centre For 1,000 years or more, pilgrims have trod Europe’s country roads and the abbeys were important resting points along the way. In 2014, Esrum opens once more; not just as a destination, but as a pilgrim centre in Sealand. This means that you can use Esrum as a base, from where you can head out for long or short hikes. The abbey will welcome hikers, issue pilgrim passes, make special food bags to take with you on your hike, offer simple accommodation and much more. And it doesn’t matter if you are a bonafide pilgrim on your way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain or if you’re just organising the family get-together for a brisk walk from Esrum to Nødebo along the lake and the ancient beech trees.

The fjord’s charming gem
LYNÆS The harbour in Lynæs opens into Isefjord, and is thus an ideal spot to moor when sailing around the fjord. In the past, Lynæs was famous for the Lynæs dinghy, and many fine examples of the sailboat can still be found moored in the harbour. The marine chandler on the harbour front supplies visiting yachtsmen and local boat owners with the equipment they need – and sometimes with what they don’t! Nowadays, it is probably just as much the windsurfing and kite surfing that make Lynæs a well-known and favourite destination, with the many young sea sports enthusiasts who frequent the beach. Here, the wind conditions, and waves are often perfect for fast sailing and performing daring somersaults in the air – preferably in strong winds and, with a good wetsuit, irrespective of the air and water temperatures. However, there is also space to pursue calmer windsurfing techniques and kayaking, with professional instruction available for beginners. For those preferring to stay on terra firma, a wide selection of fresh fish or warm dishes from the sea’s bountiful larder are sold at reasonable prices at the shops in and around the harbour. The restaurants serve good and substantial meals, and for those wanting to stay longer 16
there are rooms at the inn or the good local campsite. The inhabitants of Lynæs like to party, especially in the summer for the annual harbour festival, which draws the locals and everyone staying in summer cottages, and at the jazz festival which is held in the grocer’s garden, which is another very popular event. Many cyclists follow Fjordstien, a path that goes right around Isefjord and Roskilde Fjord, with many of them falling for Lynæs’s idyllic charm and deciding to stay here. The church in Lynæs is also well worth a visit. It was built of granite boulders in 1901, and blends in well with its surroundings. The accommodation options in Lynæs include the inn, campsite, bed-and-breakfast and, of course, your own boat. Halsnæs’s oldest fishing hamlet, Kikhavn, was built in the 13th century and consisted of small farms sited closely together on the beach overlooking the Kattegat. However, a raging fire destroyed the majority of the buildings, with many of the inhabitants deciding to move to the outermost point of Halsnæs which lies sheltered by high ground. Hence the name Lynæs, “ly” being the Danish word for “shelter”.
Nature, history and special experiences await you
HUNDESTED If you want to meet enthusiastic and engaging people, come to the town of Hundested and its harbour. Situated right between the fjord and the sea with one of the best bathing beaches in North Sealand on its doorstep, you will find this idyllic old fishing harbour with charming art galleries, fishmongers and restaurants. Come and quench your thirst with a locally brewed beer and enjoy the freshly smoked mackerel hand while taking in the sight of gently swaying masts. The fishing boats start landing their catches of fresh fish from first light, nestled among the visiting yachtsmen who enjoy the fascinating sight of busy harbour life. The artistic scene is one of Hundested’s unique phenomena, with visitors being able to watch small lumps of raw material being transformed into the most exquisite glass, or trace the intriguing stories contained within the works of local painters, sculptors and jewellers. There is lots for children to do in Hundested harbour. Learn about different fish on the “stroke a fish” platform, or try your hand at catching crabs. If you have brought a fishing rod, you will find all the facilities you need for cleaning, smoking or grilling your freshly caught fish. Or watch closely when, during the summer, the marine biology students devote themselves to learning
about fish anatomy. Take your family to the sand sculpture festival where, in addition to the incredible sculptures by international sand artists, children will become absorbed in sand’s infinite possibilities. Visit the polar explorer Knud Rasmussen’s House and discover the fascinating stories from his numerous scientific expeditions. The house also has a unique scenic outdoor area which overlooks the Kattegat. This is also Hundested’s protective earthworks from where it was possible to watch over the entrance to the fjord. The four cannon on the earthworks are now only fired on Denmark’s Constitution Day on 5 June. If you want to stay in Hundested, book a harbour cabin, stay at a B&B, at the local inn or check in to the local campsite. You can also come by motorhome and park for the night with fantastic views across the harbour. Hundested has evolved from being a small fishing hamlet at the end of the 19th century to a seaside town with a commercial harbour, fishing harbour, ferry harbour and a marina, which gives the town an authentic maritime feel. The town takes its name from an offshore reef where kings and others hunted seals, which is why there are several sculptures, posters and labels around the town bearing a distinctive little round seal’s head.

HELSINGE – a living city Helsinge is one of the liveliest commercial towns in North Sealand. All year round there are many different activities, which together with the rich variety of supermarkets and specialist stores make the town a lively and attractive place to visit. Free parking Wherever you intend to shop in Helsinge, you will always be able to find a parking space nearby. Today there are more than 2,000 parking spaces to choose between, and they are all free. You may have to display your parking disc in one or two parking spots, but generally it is not necessary. Pond and fountain The sound of the impressive fountain mingles with the quacking of the ducks and the cries of the seagulls, often accompanied by the joyful squeals of children playing close by. The green frog lounges on his big grey stone and emits a playful stream of water from its mouth. A wonderful oasis in the heart of Helsinge. Green and verdant. Christiern Pedersen memorial wall The author and translator Christiern Pedersen (1480-1554) spent the last ten years of his life in Helsinge. He was a sup20
porter of Christian II and stayed with the king during his exile in the Netherlands. Later in life, he lived in Malmö and in Copenhagen, and in 1550 he was commissioned to translate the Bible into Danish. A beautiful memorial wall to Christiern Pedersen was erected next to Helsinge’s pretty town pond in 1956. The memorial was restored when the area around the pond was renovated in 2005. Colourful and festive culture night In June, the town undergoes something of a transformation. This is when the annual Culture Night takes place with more than 10,000 visitors descending on the town. A fabulous evening event with lots of music, entertainment, stalls, exhibitions, street shows and shop bargains. Midsummer festival Around midsummer when Danes celebrate “Sankt Hans”, Helsinge is almost turned upside down for the annual town festival.

The steely town
FREDERIKSVÆRK Frederiksværk was named after Frederik V. The city grew up around his cannon foundry, the so-called Gjethus, which supplied thousands of cannons to the Danish army and navy. In the 1850s, the production was changed to pots and pans, and the large iron foundry supplied household items to major towns all over the country. Today Gjethuset is the cultural centre for the whole town. It was at Frederik’s Works that the gunpowder was mixed that the Englishmen sampled at the Battle of Copenhagen, and it was here that the cannonballs were made for the hundreds of cannons at Dybbøl entrenchment
to fire at the attacking Germans. The powder mills are quite unique. They lie like pearls on a string along both sides of the canal. At Krudtværket you can see the old water-powered machines in operation. It gives you a good idea of the manufacturing history of gunpowder and of what a dangerous occupation it was. Here, centuries later, there is still plenty of production. The steel rolling mill spews out the white-hot plates, and sends them all over Europe. These days you can’t smell any smoke or hear the big rollers, so it’s sheer pleasure to walk around this beautiful city that is rightly known as the cradle of Danish industry. www.indmus.dk
With Frederikke on Arresø Set sail on Denmark’s largest lake: Arresø on board the charming wooden boat “Frederikke”. The trip starts from the jetty on Arresødalvej, with the leg stage passing through the narrow canal where you might be lucky enough to spot a kingfisher. Then it sails out on the wider lake, with views of not less than 3 churches. On the way, the skipper explains the lake’s history and shares various anecdotes about life on the lake. There are 1-hour trips daily in the summer season and 3-hour lunch and evening cruises on special days. M/S Frederikke, Arresødalvej, DK-3300 Frederiksværk, tel.

KRONBORG Culture Harbour Kronborg in Helsingør is a unique cultural area, packed with history and offering a wide variety of events throughout the year. The harbour and the sea form the recreational setting around Hamlet’s Kronborg Castle as an international landmark, Kulturværftet as the innovative cultural centre in the old shipyard buildings and M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark as the modern museum created by Bjarke Ingels.

fic sail past on the Sound and Swedish coast. Just in front of you, on the shipyard’s outer pier, you’ll encounter HAN; a shiny steel sculpture of a young man in mermaid position, designed by internationally known artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset. Together, Culture Harbour bears a unique story about Renaissance man’s endeavours to gain power, status and identity, about the industrial story and of Denmark as a maritime nation in a global perspective.

CULTURAL EXPERIENCES Rudolph Tegner Museum & Statue Park The sculptor Rudolph Tegner (18731950) lived and worked in Denmark and France. In 1916 he started to buy plots of land in the harsh and heathery countryside south of Dronningmølle, otherwise known as Rusland. Here he placed many of his sculptures in the open air. He built the museum in 1937-38, and the enormous building is one of the first concrete buildings in Denmark. The museum and statue park show different aspects of Tegner’s work, with more than 250 pieces in plaster, clay, bronze and marble. Museumsvej 19, DK-3120 Dronningmølle, tel.

Back in 1497 the abbey owned 291 farms and villages in North Sealand. Moreover, the monks owned
the three mills and the churches in Tikøb and Esbønderup. Today, the abbey is a fascinating cultural centre with changing exhibitions and, in particular, the annual Medieval Market is well worth a visit. Esrum Møllegård shows how the old watermill operates.

At the museum, visitors can see works of art from the Italian and north European Renaissance, the Dutch Baroque period and the Danish Golden Age.

LOUISIANA MUSEUM OF MODERN ART Located 25 miles north of Copenhagen, LOUISIANA strikes that rarest of balances between landscape, architecture, and art. Louisiana is world famous. It is a living cultural centre and it is a very special place where art and archi¬tecture meet parkland with direct access to Øresund. Louisiana hosts 6-8 major international exhibitions of modern and contemporary art yearly. The museum has a long tradition of photography, design and architecture exhibitions. The collection covers a period dating back to 1945 and has examples of every genre – mainly focusing on painting and sculpture. The collection has major works by Picasso, Giacometti, Warhol, Rauschenberg, Bourgeois, Jorn, Baselitz and Kirkeby among others. The museum has the largest collection of art in Scandinavia, with over 3,000 works.
Architecture and the sculpture park The Sculpture Park is an integral part of the Louisiana experience. From the park you have a full view of the Øresund and can see how the buildings fit into the landscape. Architecturally, Louisiana is considered one of the finest examples of 50s discreet modernism. The park sculptures are an important part of the museum’s collection and each sculpture is precisely placed so that its expression is fully realised. The sculpture park contains works by Moore, Calder, Ernst, Miró and others. The Children’s Wing, Cafe and Shop The huge 3-storey Children’s Wing at Louisiana offers your children an opportunity to work with their best resources.
The Children’s Wing features several active workshops for kids and their parents, a Lego room, tours. Children and their parents can participate in special Sunday workshop events based on current exhibits. Louisiana Cafe has a panoramic view across Øresund and the outdoor patio is open in the summer. Modern Danish cuisine based on seasonal ingredients is prepared and served in the cafe. Lunch and dinner buffets are available. Louisiana Shop is one of Denmark’s leading design stores, focusing mainly on Danish and Scandinavian design. The selection of goods available in the store reflects the latest design trends but also reflects the museum’s changing exhibitions.

This is a region of rich and varied countryside with dramatic cliffs towering over countless small and intimate bays, long and wide beaches encircled by sand dunes and forests. The Kattegat glints in the sun alongside the coast road, as you pass by charming and romantic fishing villages and lively seaside towns. The towns are popular summer and bathing destinations with lots of activities, shops and eateries; from fashionable cafes, family restaurants and pizzerias to specialist top-class restaurants. Hundested and Gråstenvej Hundested is a marina town that lies in the
Almost 100 km of beautiful beaches. Kissed by the clean waters of the Kattegat and Øresund. A paradise riviera for families, nature lovers and adventureseekers.
west. The popular sandy beach with sand dunes is just a two-minute walk from the harbour and Hundested. The beach is popular with visitors and locals alike and the town’s commercial centre is just a short walk away, offering great food and excellent shopping. There is good parking and a fine view across the mouth of Isefjord and Rørvig to the west. Five kilometres further east, the beach at Gråstenvej is equally popular and more child-friendly. Liseleje – eight kilometres of golden beach Liseleje is a romantic seaside town by the edge of Tisvilde Hegn, with classic timbered houses and hollyhocks and a wide sandy beach. Plenty of
parking space, so the town is easily accessible. The water is shallow but children and bathers must keep clear of the stone breakwaters because of the risk of strong currents and rip currents. Tisvildeleje and Stængehus The old fishing village in Tisvilde is the essence of a very traditional seaside town that has become a fashionable and popular destination with cafes and intimate night life in recent years. The popular beach is studded with classic bathing huts painted in charming colours. The bay behind the jetty provides ideal shelter if the wind gets up. From the large car park, visitors can walk along the beach and enjoy the unspoilt nature and the large sand dunes. Visitors can also drive to the car park by Stængehus; located in the centre of Tisvilde Hegn, about the midpoint of the long beach between Liseleje and Tisvildeleje. Cliffs and small coves The stretch between Tisvildeleje and Rågeleje has steep and impressive cliffs towering over the Kattegat. The view is magnificent. At the foot of the slopes there are rarely-visited small coves with fine beaches. With luck, you can find an intimate beach just for yourself. Use the many sets of steep steps set along this stretch of coast to descend the slopes. Rågeleje Location of a superb and very classic promenade that along with the coast road follows a long stretch of coastline, close to the water’s edge. The beach is very child-friendly and ideal for the family. And on very windy days, windsurfers make an exciting and colourful spectacle as they enjoy ideal windsurfing conditions. Gilleleje The old fishing town continues to fish from a large harbour that is lively and atmospheric. The beaches on either side of the harbour are excellent. To the east lies Strandbakkerne, a
protected and family-friendly beach at the foot of a grass-covered slope in an area scented with wild roses. It has an excellent view of the lighthouse on the top of Nakkehoved, which along with the other lighthouse on Kullen, marks the approach to Øresund. On the other side of the harbour is Veststranden, with slightly deeper water, often with more waves. Hornbæk Hornbæk is the most well-known seaside town on the north coast. It is a lively place with a charming marina atmosphere with timbered houses in the old fishing area. The town teems with life and activities and the beach is large and impressive with lots of fine sand and towering sand dunes. The beach can be very busy on hot summer days. Strandlegepladsen at Hornbæk harbour The new playground on the beach at Hornbæk is designed as a harbour, with timbre pier, bridges, lighthouse, boats, chutes, swings and much more. www.hornbaekhavn.dk Snekkersten and Espergærde Past Helsingør the coastline turns south, where there are lots of small but very charming and intimate beaches. Snekkersten and Espergærde lie side by side with lawns and old sites once used to dry fishing nets hint at a time when fishing for herring in the Øresund was a vital source of wealth. Both neighbourhoods have fine sands and a lovely view of Sweden across the Sound. Rungsted A lovely bathing beach lies next to Rungsted Harbour, where children and adults play in the waves and on the beautiful sands.

– a pearl on the Danish Riviera There is activity in Tisvildeleje all year, but in the summer when the sun is high in the sky, the town really comes to life. Do not be surprised if you bump into a well-known TV personality, actor, politician or celebrity. No, because they are obviously doing what so many others do in the summer – head for Tisvildeleje. Fortunately there is plenty of space on the wide, ten-kilometre-long beach. Many visitors have their favourite spots where they have sunbathed year after year, for example next to the breakwater. However, large numbers walk or cycle through Tisvilde Hegn towards Liseleje. This takes you past Troldeskoven forest, an exciting plantation with large sand dunes before you reach the water. It takes more than one day to explore the beach in Tisvildeleje. Beach huts A special feature of the beach in Tisvildeleje is the colourful beach huts which lie dotted among the dunes between the track down to the breakwater and the main car park. The beach huts have not always looked the way they do now. Originally they were small huts on two large wheels which could be rolled back to the hotel in the evening. Later, interim beach huts were built as changing facilities. People bathed in groups, so that while some were dressing or undressing, others were out in the waves, which obviously required careful coordination. You did not lie down to sunbathe or spend time splashing at the water’s edge. It was not comme il faut to be sunburned, on the contrary. It sounds strange now, but it was actually considered indecent for a lady to be seen in a state of undress, let alone in a bathing costume. Today, the beach huts have almost become a symbol of Tisvildeleje. Lifeguards in the summer holidays There are two lifeguard posts on this popular beach, both manned by trained lifeguards. One is close to where the path goes down to the breakwater, while
the other is near the large car park. Read more at www.nordkysten.net Disabled access There is parking for the disabled just at the descent to the beach and the breakwater. From the parking area there is a concrete path all the way down to and out into the water. Excursions on two wheels When you feel that you have spent enough time on the beach and in the water, there is a very nice and interesting new way of seeing and exploring Tisvildeleje. All the places to stay in Tisvildeleje now provide free, detailed maps with complete descriptions of suggested bicycle routes, for example Troldeskoven and the drifting sand (38 km), or Tisvilde Hegn and Arresø lake (36 km). Tisvilde Hegn Tisvilde Hegn, which lies a stone’s throw from the beach, is Denmark’s oldest dune plantation, but also perhaps the most visited. At a count in the 1970s, it was estimated that about one million people visited the woods each year, a figure which will is unlikely to have fallen. This fascinating and beautiful forest is an adventure playground for both children and grown-ups. It is here that you find Troldeskoven, which consists of old, windblown and gnarled Scotch pines. Kildemarket and opera Over the weekend 2 and 3 August, there’s the opportunity to visit the annual Kildemarked with its exhibition of arts, crafts, music and much more. Admission to the market is free of charge. On Saturday evening, the annual opera concert (ticket sales) is held starring singers and musicians from the Royal Danish Theatre.

Beach & nature in
The white sandy beaches form a beautiful and sharp contrast to the raw stretch of pine trees in Hornbæk Plantage. West of the harbour is perfect for swimming, sunbathing and relaxing on the wide, sandy beaches or up in the dunes, while the east side is great for surfing cycling, running or hunting for amber, stones and shells. Harbour and beach playground Enjoy the intimate and cosy harbour atmosphere with its excellent beach playground for children and the young at heart. You and your family can try your hand at catching crabs or barbeque some food as the sun sets and the children play in the evening sun.
There are plenty of activities at the beach playground throughout the entire summer. Down by the harbour you can enjoy an ice-cream, pick up some fresh fish for lunch or dinner and do a spot of luxury clothes shopping at Hornbæk Skibshandel. The old fishing hamlet and church Go and explore the area around the idyllic old fishing hamlet with its winding paths, charming drying ground and the original fishing cottages. Several of Hornbæk’s famous artists used to live here, and it’s also home to the historic Hornbæk Church with its old naves. In the summer you can join a guided bicycle
Hornbæk is a part of The Danish Riviera – www.dendanskeriviera.dk
or walking tour and see the museum boat SAGA. Wellness and activity Hornbæk is a great place for recharging your batteries. Go for a stroll down by the beach or through Hornbæk Plantage. Try out the Kurbadet, where you indulge in spa treatments and enjoy being pampered. If you feel something a bit more active, you can sail, surf, cycle or run through the forest, along the shoreline or on the titness route around Hornbæk Lake.
Hornbæk – town of light in Royal North Sealand
The seaside town
The old whitewashed “ice house” on the grassy area behind the beach testifies to Liseleje’s origins as a fishing settlement. During the winter, blocks of sea ice were carved up and stored in the ice house under thick layers of seaweed and used to cool freshly caught fish long into the spring. The influx of holiday-makers has made the area one of the best seaside towns in North Sealand with lots of summer cottages. Enjoy the lovely child-friendly beach where lifeguards are on duty during the summer. For the disabled, there is access all the way down to the water. The grassy area behind the beach provides a perfect setting for the annual Kattegat Kite Festival, a magnet for kite enthusiasts and ordinary kite-building fathers and their children every August. All in all, Liseleje is a wonderful place for a good and jolly family holiday. The nature playground Havtyren (or Sea Bull) will keep the kids occupied for hours. According to
legend, several sea cows had gone up onto the beach to graze. However, local farmers stole the sea cows and refused to give them back to the mermen. In response, the mermen sent the Sea Bull up onto the beach. With its long horns, it ploughed up the ground so the area became a victim to drifting sand, forcing the inhabitants to leave. The truth of the matter is, that the drifting sand resulted from overgrazing and deforestation, allowing the sand to get the upper hand. While the children are playing on the swings, climbing frames and obstacle courses in the playground, the rest of the family is able to enjoy a cup of coffee, ice cream or a glass of beer or wine. Liseleje is dotted with friendly restaurants, cafés and bars, all characterised by their relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere. The all-year residents have nicknamed the main high street “intimate street”, where specialist shops, the bakery and grocery stores sit shoulder to shoul-

on the Danish Riviera
der selling a diverse and appealing range of products. There is no avoiding the fact that you are in one of Denmark’s lovely old traditional seaside towns. Go for a nice long stroll along the beach or at Melby Overdrev, a conservation area with numerous birds to listen to and watch. Take a detour through the plantation Liseleje Plantage to Melbylejren, the old military shooting range, which is now used for recreational purposes. Exhibitions and other events are occasionally held here. The north coast path from Hundested to Elsinore passes through Liseleje, making it a popular place to stop off for cyclists following the Kattegat coastline. Many visitors choose to rent a holiday cottage. Bed-and-breakfasts also offer attractively priced accommodation, and the area also has a good campsite, giving you every opportunity to stay in Liseleje, experience the sunset and enjoy the Danish summer at its best.
There’s no mistaking such happy music – the song of children playing gladdens every heart. Be inspired by fun and exciting child-centred play all year round.
FOR KIDS Esrum Abbey & Esrum Møllegård Esrum activities are designed for kids.

Try whale watching, crab fishing and seining with Øresund Aquarium In Helsingør, you can take a trip with Øresund Aquarium out on the Sound in a large, safety- approved inflatable boat and experience the fantastic “Danish” whale, the porpoise, at first hand. The Sound is well-stocked with this little whale, which reaches almost 2 metres in length and weighs approx. 70 kg when fully grown. Porpoise trips take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays in weeks 26-32 at 16-18 and evening excursions are at 19-21. There is space for 12 people plus 2 crew members, who are marine biologists and/or nature guides. Bookings for this summer’s tours can be made from 9 June at 10.00. You can also try an exciting crab fishing trip in Helsingør Harbour with the guides from Øresund Aquarium. This takes place every weekday during the summer holidays from 11.25 to 12.45. First, you have to make your own crab fishing rod, and then you go with the aquarium’s nature guides down to the harbour’s best crab fishing spot. Later in the day (all weekdays) at 13.15 to 14.45, the guide will take you seining at Kronborg beach to look at the exciting marine life on the sandy seabed. These activities are free together with paid admission to the aquarium. See more at www. oresundsakvariet. ku.dk
NATURE PLAYGROUNDS North Sealand has a wealth of nature playgrounds. The playgrounds are located next to the woods or a beach and built from natural materials. Children can balance, hop, crawl, climb and play in their own fantasy world. Glenten exercise and play area Glenten is a new play and exercise area beautifully situated at the top of a hill in Knorrenborg Vang. There is a playground with huge spiders and webs, and a kite with outstretched wings. These are surrounded by a wide range of wooden exercise equipment, which can be used for muscle building, balancing or just play. Knorrenborg Vang, syd for Fredensborg Nature and activity route at Hundested Sundhedskorridor Halsnæs – Health Corridor Halsnæs – is a new and exciting 10-kilometre route offering various challenges. On the walk there is a labyrinth in a dark pine wood, a forest playground and a combined shelter and bonfire hut with lakeside views. The path passes through a town, woods and a beach and can be walked in stages. Along the way there are audio guides and boards with activity suggestions. For a folder describing the route, visit www.nst.dk or pick
one up from the box at the sports hall in Hundested. Eghjorten At Eghjorten there’s a very popular nature playground in the forest with masses of playground equipment and a covered bonfire area with several grill grates. A pamphlet has recently been published with suggestions for a short route with fun tasks that the family can do together when visiting the playground. Jespersvej 309, DK-3480 Fredensborg, close to Hillerød Havtyren Havtyren (the Sea Bull) has risen from the sea and is now fixed on solid ground. According to legend, the entire area around Liseleje and Tisvilde was covered by sand because the peasants would not give the mermen their sea cows back. So the Sea Bull started shifting the sand. Everything but Tibirke Church was covered. Inspired by this legend, the Danish
Forest and Nature Agency worked with the locals to open an original new playground by Liseleje Strand with the Sea Bull at the front. Among the trees, you’ll discover balancing bridges, slides, climbing frames, swings and a storyteller’s chair with sea creatures. The nature playground is adjacent to the large parking area at Liseleje beach and has just been expanded with new playground equipment.

Find a path in… 14 different nature and forest areas in North Sealand. “Find vej i …” is a simplified version of orienteering. It’s a kind of treasure hunt that takes you around all the special sights in forests, parks and nature areas. There are suggested routes in varying degrees of length and difficulty and you decide your own pace. In other words ‘Find vej i Danmark’ is for everyone: sprinters, Nordic walkers and families with children. Many places also offer information about the local nature and culture related to the posts. Several places have made small pamphlets, describing the history of selected places and have a map indicating where the posts are located. Read more and find a proposal that suits you at www.findveji.dk Call the past and nature In North Sealand’s forests, you can get even more out of your forest trip if you have your phone on you. Many places featuring traces of the past have a sign or pictogram with a phone number. Standard rates apply when you call to hear an interesting story about the place where you are standing. The Danish Nature Agency in North Sealand has collected all the numbers in 6 themed leaflets with GPS points that can be downloaded from the Agency’s website www. nst.dk. The themes are: Hunting, The Ancient World, Monuments, Water, Settlements, and Castles and Ruins. The stories are in Danish. On the disabled path by Esrum, there are also accompanying audio guides at the eight information boards.

The Glass House
Barkholt Nursery Nursery Barkholt Nursery lies on the outskirts of Helsinge, and is considered by many as the most beautiful nursery in North Sealand.

forests and lakes
It’s always a pleasure reading about nature in brochures and on websites, but it’s only when you’re actually there that the experiences come to life. The experience of the silence and the glistening of the sun reflecting on the water’s surface in front of your kayak. The experience of your roots as you stand in front of an ancient passage grave and listen to its 5,000-year story on your mobile phone, or the experience of the beautiful flowering meadows, where butterflies and bumble bees swarm around the flowers with the best nectar. There are plenty of opportunities for these kinds of experiences in North Sealand, but you can also find experiences with more action. Get up on a bike and try one of the many trails, or go exploring with a map, compass or GPS in your hunt for assignments or historical stories. Sealand is a mosaic of forests, large lakes, open farmland and coastlines, all waiting to be discovered. The royal forests Had it not been for the royal hunt, we would probably never have been able to
enjoy the vast forests that today exist in North Sealand. In the 17th century, Christian V returned home from France’s Sun King, much taken with his experiences of hunting with hounds, and decided to introduce the sport to Denmark. In both Gribskov and St. Dyrehave, you can still find the old hunting routes with their star-crossed formations. If you stand in one of these stars, you can almost hear the bugles being blown and visualise the galloping riders and hounds chasing their victim to the bloody end. Your imagination is helped along by the audio guide that you’ll find located by the star formations. However, there’s more to the forests than their hunting ground history. Between the trees, nature unfolds in the form of small forest lakes, marshes, meadows and hilly grasslands. There’s open deciduous vegetation and dense thickets of spruce. And amidst these very different habitats flourish mushrooms, flowers and animals, each adapted to their own environment. You’re most likely to spot larger birds, such as common buzzards, sea eagles, ospreys and
DANISH MUSEUM OF HUNTING AND FORESTRY Visitors to the Danish Museum of Hunting and Forestry are allowed to touch many of the exhibits, and there are several places in the museum where you can experience the past directly on your own body; for example, try on a forestry worker’s or a Stone Age hunter’s clothing and try your hands at almost driving a Ferguson tractor. The museum follows developments from the two-man saw to a harvester, and you can experience how Danes have coexisted with nature over the past 14-15,000 years.

ravens, soaring high over the treetops. Or maybe some deer, of which there are four species in North Sealand: the magnificent red deer, the numerous fallow deer and the smallest, the roe-deer. Sika deer live there too, but they are a rare sighting. But if you sit quietly by the banks of a forest lake, you’ll spot some smaller creatures too. The green frog: jumping quickly into the water at the slightest sound and looking back at you with just his eyes skimming the water surface. This is where dragonflies hunt their prey, and the little grebe disappears beneath the water before reappearing on the other side of the lake. Denmark’s largest lakes Denmark’s two largest lakes can be found in North Sealand, and here you’ll see a very different kind of life. There is space here for life on a larger scale. Esrum Lake, which has the largest volume of water, lies between hilly farmland and Gribskov. A boat trip along the banks offers many wonderful experiences. Birdwatchers’ paradise, stopping at one of barbecue ar-
to make beaver dens, fell trees and build small dams that flood the landscape behind him. Gurre Lake is a more mystical place. The ruins of Gurre Castle are situated by the lake and Valdemar Atterdag’s fabled connection to the site adds a fascinating dimension. The lake is located in a large forested area with Gurre Vang in the south and Horserød Hegn in the north. The greater part is protected woodland where peace and quiet are greatly respected. A little path snakes its way around the lake. Here you can find the perfect stop for barbequing or sleeping under the stars. The wide open spaces There are several places in North Sealand where you can enjoy a greater sense of space. Hellebæk Kohave is a large grazing area just next to Teglstrup Hegn. Between150-300 animals graze here, naturally encouraging a wonderful explosion of wild flowers in the cropped grass. At Melby Overdrev, between Liseleje Plantage and Asserbo Plantage, heather grows all the way to the dunes. The abundance of flowers in the sunny, open
eas in the forest and the view overlooking Fredensborg Castle with the avenues in the garden and Skipper-huset, the idyllic lakeside restaurant. On a hot summer’s day, there’ll be swimming, barbequing, birdwatching, cycling, sailing and fishing in and around the lake. You can also enjoy a ferry trip around the lake. A little further to the west lies Denmark’s largest lake, Arresø. The lake is a bird sanctuary and it is not uncommon to see marsh harrier soaring over the reed beds on the lake shore or to glimpse an eagle or osprey. Several meadow lakes dot Arresø’s hinterland like pearls on a string. The stream Pøle å flows through Strødam Engsø, Solberg Engsø and Alder Sønderup Engsø, before flowing into the Arresø. The 15-year-old lake, Holløse Bredning, lies just to the north. These lakes are home to an abundance of birds, and have grassy meadows running all the way down to the riverbanks. New bird hides make it easier to get closer to the avian life. Since 2009, when the first beaver family was released, another 20 beavers have been released. They are now starting
areas attracts beautiful butterflies and other insects. Grasshoppers chirp away as the pollen-laden bumblebees buzz busily from flower to flower. Similar nature can be enjoyed by Gilbjerg Hoved, which, like several other commons lies along North Sealand’s long coastline where cliffs or dunes lead out to the shoreline and the Kattegat’s inviting waves. Folehaveskoven Hørsholm This is one of North Sealand’s most fertile forests with excellent growing conditions for many tree species. The forest also contains many ancient monuments in the form of Bronze Age burial mounds and single barrows from the Neolithic Age. You can read about these in more detail in the Danish Forest and Nature Agency’s hiking brochure. You can also find the designated hiking routes described in the folder.

IS TO LIVE

Elsinore has two large and bustling harbours. Helsingør Havn is a traffic and ferry harbour where the large ferries and, in particular, the cruise liners dock. In 2014 visitors will be able to see the ocean liners Minerva and Thomson Celebration and in spring the Royal Yacht Dannebrog will visit the harbour. In fact, Elsinore is the only city in Denmark which can offer anchorages for the largest liners, with views of Hamlet’s
castle, the Culture Yard and the brand new Maritime Museum of Denmark. Helsingør Nordhavn is an authentic cultural environment where residents and tourists enjoy a sense of well-being thanks to the balanced mix between the recreation and leisure and the thriving commercial environment. The driving force in Elsinore’s harbours is the waterborne traffic, which will continue to act as a conduit for external influences.
Helsingør Nordhavn was built as a fishing harbour and marina in 1932-1934, and was enlarged in the early 1970s to its present size. Now there are numerous shops, restaurants and, in particular, the large Øresund Aquarium. Helsingør Havne, Nordhavnsvej 13 DK-3000 Helsingør, tel. (+45) 49 28 10 80 www.helsingor-havne.helsingor.dk

All this can be experienced at the Øresund Aquarium, which is dedicated to the marine life in the Sound. Strandpromenaden 5, DK-3000 Helsingør, tel.

A holiday in North Sealand should always include a visit to Helsingborg. The ferry to Helsingborg is quick and easy. And there are lots of bargains to be had when you shop in Sweden. Take your car on the ferry and visit the attractions outside the city, or leave it in Helsingør if you’re planning to spend the day in Helsingborg.
A TRIP TO BEAUTIFUL HELSINGBORG WITH SCANDLINES Fantastic Helsingborg lies directly across the Øresund and has a wealth of exciting stores, shopping centres, museums, cosy streets and alleys. The city caters for all ages – children included. Four ferries sail between Helsingør and Helsingborg every hour, so there’s never any waiting time. And the short crossing only takes twenty minutes. You can purchase a foot passenger ticket if you only want to visit Helsingborg or are planning to use public transport for the rest of your journey. Or you can pay to take your car and drive to some of the many nearby attractions. On a daytrip you can easily visit the Kullaberg peninsula with its charming villages, Mølle and Arild. Or visit the beautiful Bjärehalvøen just a little further north, where the coastal towns
Båstad and Torekov lie invitingly. Vall åsen is less than an hour from Helsingborg, and its wildly attractive alpine terrain is great for skiing and snowboarding in winter and mountain biking in summer. Or perhaps you just want to take a hike through Scania’s wonderful countryside. The low value of the Swedish krona, makes shopping in Sweden a very attractive prospect. Helsingborg itself has no fewer than around 400 stores, while just outside the city, is the very large and attractive Väla shopping centre, with a wide variety of stores. The romantic castle Sofiero is situated in the northern outskirts of Helsingborg towards Øresund. It is surrounded by an enchanting park that overflows with thousands of blooming rhododendrons in
summer. Princess Ingrid of Sweden (1910-2000), who became Queen of Denmark, often holidayed here as a child with her royal cousins. Frederiksdal outdoor museum is very large and has changing exhibitions – a mini version of Scania that you can walk around. It has an abundance of beautiful gardens, trees, bushes and flowers. There are many attractive bargains on offer on the ferries, including cosmetics and perfumes. You can eat in the onboard restaurants and enjoy an enchanting evening just by sailing to-and-from Denmark and Sweden. A visit to Helsingborg and its surrounding countryside is a wonderful addition to your holiday in North Sealand. Visit Scandlines at www.scandlines.dk for more information and ticket prices.

IN NORTH SEALAND
When you stay overnight in any of North Sealand’s beautiful hotels, you will most likely hear the Nightingale sing just beyond the window. Or perhaps the song of the waves falling on the quiet shore will lull you to sleep. Or perhaps the stirrings of a breeze in the treetops will catch your eye. Or the ghostly tapestry of glistening stars in the night sky will leave you enchanted. The possibilities are endless in North Sealand. And it is beautifully dark at night. The many lovely hotels are all very different, with their own unique charm,
offering the possibility of unexpected adventures. Charm that is free and simply a part of the adventure.

over time. Because of the building’s age, whether you’re staying on the 1st or the 2nd floor, each of the 25 rooms is unique.

TASTE OF NORTH SEALAND The Taste of North Sealand is an association comprising local food producers and small food processing companies in Royal North Sealand. Fruit, vegetables, juice, eggs, milk, meat, sausages and cold cuts are all produced here. And also the more exotic foods and beverages that have become a part of Danish food culture over the centuries. All these producers are passionate food lovers and this passion for quality ingredients can clearly be tasted in the food they serve. This quality also stems from our Nordic climate, which allows crops to grow more slowly, thereby adding a more intense taste to many products. The association members listed here sell their products from farm shops scattered all over North Sealand. These shops are typically part of rustic old farms and the journey to the shop is an experience in itself. In some places you can also explore the local area; admire the forests, see the animals grazing in the fields or watch farmers hard at work. Ask for a guided tour in the shops.

ALONG THE DANISH RIVIERA Along the Danish Riviera in Royal North Sealand
The children are ready, bucket and spade in their hands. Swimwear, towels and sunhat. Check. The sun is shining- there’s no time to lose. You stroll along the water’s edge, while the children have already found their favourite dune. Sand between your toes and fingers, and then there’s a sandcastle. It’s no surprise that artists over the years have been attracted to the atmosphere and this picturesque scene. And not just Krøyer and Drachmann, but also Kierkegaard were often drawn to North Sealand’s coastline. Like pearls on a string, the old towns and seaside resorts dot the coastline. Life is still just as charming in Sletten, Hornbæk, Lynæs,
Liseleje, Gilleleje and Tisvilde. Spa enthusiasts, culture vultures or foodies will not be disappointed by what’s on offer, just as active families can easily fill several weeks with outdoor fun and nature experiences, both on land and at sea. The beaches along the Riviera are among some of the best in Denmark. Clean water. Pure sand. Shallow, child-friendly beaches with lifeguards. And if the weather lets you down, the nature guides and snorkelling instructors at the Øresund Aquarium are waiting to tell you about the rich marine life. Relax at one of the many cosy coastal cafés as you watch harbour life and children catching crabs.

ROUTE 1 UNPRETENTIOUS LUXURY Imagine waking up to clear blue skies and the sound of rippling waves. Watch the sun warming the horizon as you put on your swimwear and dive into the frothy waves. As the new day starts, you can enjoy freshly-baked bread, freshly squeezed juice and coffee together on the hotel’s wooden terrace. The beach, the light, the dunes and plantation – high skies and fresh sea air that leave you with the most wonderful sense of inner peace.
ROUTE 2 ENJOY LIFE OVER AND UNDER THE SEA The beaches along the Riviera are among some of the best in Denmark. Clean water. Pure sand. Shallow, child-friendly beaches with lifeguards. If you’re after exotic adventures, then swim a little further out and dive under the surface to greet a porpoise or pat a carp. And if the weather lets you down, the nature guides and snorkelling instructors at the Øresund Aquarium are waiting to tell you about the rich marine life.
ROUTE 3 DIVE INTO SUMMER LIFE Like pearls on a string, the old towns and seaside resorts dot the coastline. Life is still just as charming in Sletten, Hornbæk, Lynæs, Liseleje, Gilleleje and Tisvilde. Golfers, culture vultures or foodies will not be disappointed by what’s on offer, just as active families can easily fill several weeks with outdoor fun and nature experiences, both on land and at sea. Why settle for passive relaxation, when you can enjoy golfing, shopping and snorkelling instead?
ON A BIKE
Are you and your loved one yearning for new, exciting experiences together? Do you need to taste the freedom that riding a bike can give you? “Love on a bike” is a romantic mini-holiday set in one of the most culturally interesting and naturally beautiful areas of Denmark.

Royal North Sealand’s romantic backdrop is perfect for tranquillity, intimacy and sensuality – just what you need to make your holiday truly memorable. Stay at one of the lovely seaside hotels, hostels and Bed & Breakfasts, where you’ll be gently woken by the fresh sea air, and cycle
around the local farm shops that sell a wide range of their own produce from bottles of wine to boxes of chocolates. Or what about seeing some art on walls and in a park? Visit the picturesque small harbours with their charming cafés and restaurants, and give your day the perfect ending as you watch the sun setting behind the local fishing boats in Gilleleje Harbour. Royal North Sealand gives you the peace to rediscover one another, and with unforgettable holiday experiences on two wheels, we promise there’ll be romance, rosy cheeks and a smile on your lips.

Discover North Sealand’s rich cultural life on charming bike rides together. In the evenings you can relax by the open fire, enjoy an intimate dinner and savour your quality time together.
ROUTE 3 LOVE WITH A VIEW From the romantic and luxurious Helenekilde Badehotel in the traditional beach resort of Tisvildeleje, you’ll ride your bikes around to a number of unforgettable natural sights along “The Danish Riviera”. Slow down, give yourself time to dream and fall in love all over again.
GO ON A CULTURAL HOLIDAY IN ROYAL NORTH SEALAND Find inspiration from “Sources of New Nordic“ One focal point is Nordic modernism, as it manifests itself in many different forms. It is especially evident in architecture: with clean lines and clear-cut shapes, often closely connected to nature. Where do these ideas come from? Where are their roots? And most importantly – who breaks with tradition and paves the new way forward? New Nordic cuisine, modern open sandwiches, TV series, fashion, design and architecture. New Danish cultural products distinguish themselves by their common elements of naturalness, tradition and functionality. In North Sealand, more
than anywhere else, you’ll sense the cultural foundation of these innovations: the modernist tradition. Explore this foundation and find the recipe to the good life on “a Sources of new Nordic” holiday.
Get inspiration for holiday experiences and find places to stay – see more at www.visitnordsjaelland.com ROUTE 1 NEW NORDIC ORIGIN Are you ready for a challenge? Great art and exciting cultural experiences do something special to us. They inspire us. They force us to question our traditional ideas. They take us away from the mundane, the safe. This route gives you the opportunity to immerse yourselves in and reflect on the times we live in.
ROUTE 2 NEW NORDIC PRODUCE On this trip you’ll delve deep into modern North Sealand, where the thinking is innovative, but is also with a great deal of respect for traditions. The Nordic modernist design tradition, with its simple, clean-cut forms, is closely linked to nature, and many of the new producers that you’ll visit share a considerable awareness of sustainability and ecology.
ROUTE 3 NEW NORDIC CHILDHOOD In North Sealand, children are perceived for what they are – namely children with their own needs and preferences, which should be respected on an equal footing with adults. Children want to play and have fun, but this can easily be combined with gaining new insights and knowledge. On this tour you can immerse yourselves in castles and museums as well as getting out in the fresh air to let off some steam.
