At the edge of Hamlet's Castle, where the fortification meets Øresund (the Sound), is a well trafficked waterway. The strait of water separating the island of Zealand, where the castle is located, from Sweden at this point is just 2.5 miles (4km) wide.
Walking around the grounds, the sky was a bit broody and contemplative, but thankfully remained largely cooperative. Whenever I find myself in a location of such history, I like to imagine what it must have been like at the height of it's glory - teeming with people of all sorts, horses and wagons coming and going, fully suited up soldiers in armor. Good thing is, when all else fails, I can just take it easy on my brain and leave it to the movies.
