"And the Courtyard was Created!" Top 5 Page for this destination Kronborg Favorite Tip by lmkluque

Kronborg General: 13 reviews and 17 photos


Favorite thing: Frederik II extend the original old fortress, Krogen, from 1574 to 1585 and the courtyard was created.

The castle chapel and the fifty-seven meter Trumpeter Tower are on the opposite side of the courtyard. There was a fountain in the center of the courtyard, but the Swedes took it, along with other treasured items of the castle, in 1658, as the, "spoils of war," when they captured the castle/fortress.

Now, all that remains is this small well type thing where the fountain once stood.
