TOP ATTRACTIONS…

The Danish Riviera from Hornbaek - Dronningmoelle - Aalsgaarde, over Helsingor along the gold coast - Snekkersten and the fashionable Espergaerde.

In the "Happy 60s", the Danish Riviera was named the Nordic Happy Corner with three of Denmark's most distinguished hotels, casinos, etc. - today the Danish Riviera is still referred to as the "Gold Coast" because Elsinore has one of Denmark's highest discharge bases, (i.e. Elsinore is the municipality in Denmark with the most really rich inhabitants)

We welcome our cruise guests with Kronborg on the starboard side, as one of northern Europe's most significant renaissance castles.
