Hornbæk – 15 August 2018

The breakfast at our hotel this morning was a work of art and it was as delicious as it looked. In addition to fruit, bread and cold cuts there were individual mini omelettes.

After breakfast we drove about twenty minutes south to Helsinger. There we visited the Maritime Museum and the Kronborg Castle.

The Maritime Museum is realatively new. It is built below ground into an old dry dock. I loved the architecture.

The Castle is strategically located. Originally it operated as a toll house to command the narrow straight between what is now Sweden and Denmark. It also played a significant roll in Danish Swedish wars. Perhaps it is most well known as the setting for Hamlet’s Elsinor Castle although Shakespeare was never here.

After we got back to Hornbæk we walked around the lake by our hotel

We walked to dinner and on the way home went down to the beach then stopped for ice cream.
