To go or not to go? The answer, of course, is go! To Kronborg, that is, the Danish castle that was the setting for Hamlet, one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays.

Kronborg is holding its annual Renaissance Festival in October and will give visitors of all ages the opportunity to try their hand at fencing and archery, master the art of juggling or engage in some old-fashioned arts and crafts.

If you’re peckish, the ‘medieval marketplace’ will be selling pork sausages and pancakes with apple compote for you to munch on while wandering the grounds. Aspiring chefs can even learn how to cook their own medieval food over an open fire.

Those after a show won’t be disappointed; re-enactors will be adding some colourful entertainment with witch trials, jousts, and fighting tournaments that include proper armour-clad knights (cool, eh?).

Tickets cost 125 DKK for adults. Kids aged four and under go free.
