Since I generally don't travel to Europe compared to other parts of the world, I haven't been to many castles. Europe really seems to be a stronghold of castles. Still, when in Rome... or in this case, when in Denmark, might as well check out a castle, and few can be as culturally famous as that of Kronborg, the setting for William Shakespeare's 'Hamlet.'
While I had intended to try to merely watch an adaption of Hamlet, knowing that reading the play was unrealistic for me, I failed to get around to seeing it before my visit. A fairly popular tourist site, even on a rainy day with storm clouds above, the setting by the Øresund makes for some beautiful scenery along with that feeling of history.
