Whilst in Denmark we visited Helsingør, or Elsinore, as Shakespeare re-named the town in Hamlet, and spent an afternoon at Kronborg Castle.
It began life as a fortress in the 1420s, with the current castle being built after a fire in the 1600s. As ever, it’s the details I love. This is from the entrance arch:

Outside the moat, the cottages had been renovated and were beautifully preserved:
There was a lovely outdoor cafe where we had our lunch.
