Frederiksborg Slot castle is located in the middle of Hillerød and contains the National History Museum. Originally built by Frederik II in 1562, it was Christian IV who commissioned the wonderful Renaissance castle we know today. The castle burned down in 1859, and only the church is left; but the castle was rebuilt in 1865, from the outside looking just like before. Brewer Carl Jacobsen invested money so that the interior could be made like the original as well. Frederiksborg Slot contains a fine collection of photographs and portraits.
