Historic boathouse

Skipperhuset can be dated back to 1757 when Frederik V established the Chaluph House and Skipperhuset as it still stands today. Fredensborg Castle was built as a hunting castle for Frederik IV and is now often used for events in the Royal Family.

The Queen and Royal Family use the castle in the spring and autumn, so the tours are held in July. Fredensborg Castle is one of the places that the Queen actually spends most of her time. Esrum lake is Denmark's cleanest and most water-rich lake, where they have both kayak rental and trips in the large boats from the house's neighbour, Bådfarten.
