Treasure hunt in Hamlet's castle

To meet or not to meet. That is the question.

Give your meeting a historical twist and take your delegates to see the settings of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Kronborg Castle – a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here delegates can experience an alternative type of sightseeing – a historical treasure hunt taking place in and outside the castle. 

Every year plays of Hamlet are put on at Kronborg castle and festivities are gearing up for the 400 year anniversary in 2016.

All events start with a grand tour of Kronborg Castle and its many towers while feeling the presence of royalties and the legendary Hamlet and end in the spooky dungeons where the Danish national hero Holger the Dane sits watching over Denmark. If you are looking for a large and extravagant meeting space, the Great Knights Hall from 1582 offers an area for up to 420 seated guests.

Frederik II’s Kronborg is a monumental military fortress beautifully situated with a view to Sweden on the other side of the water. The castle had its peak in the late 1500s, where guests flocked from near and far to party with Frederik II – often for days. They were spoiled with gourmet dishes and all the beer they could drink.
