Charming castles, cosy harbours, Viking games, a large commune and magnificent nature await you in the northernmost part of Fjordlandet
Frederikssund is just a 45-minute car ride from Copenhagen in the northernmost part of Fjordlandet. Sail on the fjord, browse in local shops or visit the great art museum Willumsens Museum. All this and more make this unspoiled spot something special.
Be sure to visit the scenic peninsula of Horsherred, located between Isefjord and Roskilde Fjord, right next to Frederikssund on the other side of Crown Prince Frederik’s Bridge. In Hornsherred Frederikssund turns into farmland and idyllic country villages sprinkled with sites such as Jægerspris Castle, Manor House Museum Selsø Castle, the large organic commune of Svanholm and thousand-year-old oak trees. The southern part of Hornsherred near Skibby is part of Skjoldungernes Land National Park. Two great places to stop for refreshments are the dairy shop at Hansens Flødeis in Lyngerup and the many farm shops.
The local Viking Games have taken place in Frederikssund every year since 1952. Over 300 volunteers participate annually.
2. Northern Europe’s oldest oak tree
In the Northern Woods near Jægerspris Castle stands the Royal Oak, which at an estimated 1500 to 2000 years, is believed to be Northern Europe’s oldest oak tree.
3. Denmark’s oldest collective
In 1978 Svanholm Commune acquired Svanholm Manor Estate. Back then, 85 adults, 56 children and 53 pets lived there! Today there are 85 adults, 46 children and even more pets, making it Denmark’s largest commune.

Did you know that the world's smallest kingdom is located in the middle of Roskilde Fjord? 🧡
It's called Elleore and most of all looks like a peaceful bird island when you sail up close. But make no mistake. The Kingdom of Elleore has its own regent couple, royal council, ministers, and their own laws. They even have their own coins and stamps! 😌
Sail past the kingdom on your way to Roskilde Harbor or onboard the M/S Sagafjord. Remember: the island is privately owned and it's therefore not allowed to go ashore ⛵️
