«The first leg of our Baltic excursion began with a driving tour of Copenhagen and included a visit to Hillerød to see Frederiksborg Castle, which was built during the reign of Christian IV of Denmark (1588–1648).» The castle was rebuilt after a fire in 1859 and today functions as a museum with a collection that includes portraits, history paintings, and decorative arts. A particular highlight is the castle's ornately outfitted chapel, which dates from the 1680s.
