This summer, Hamlet and his family, friends and enemies move back into Kronborg Castle.

During the summer, Hamlet, Ophelia, Polonius, the ghost and other familiar characters from the play will move from the pages straight onto the set of Kronborg Castle. From June through August, the famous scenes come to life and the characters roam the chambers and halls.

Experience the characters’ daily lives at close range. Talk to the protagonists and witness their tragic fate as they grip their weapons or poison each other. Sense the atmosphere of tension, fear, intrigue and – true to the spirit of Shakespeare – lashings of comedy.

Every year, the third weekend of august, we celebrate the Soundtoll market in Helsingør. With the skirt’s crackle, crunchy comedies and cannons from Kronborg, we turn the time back to the old Helsingør. With old wooden ships in the harbor, trade stalls with 19th century goods along the waterfront and hundreds of actors in historical costumes, we are reliving for a single day the greatness of Helsingør as a Soundtoll destination, when the historic market resumes in authentic atmosphere.
