Today our main destination is the Frederiksborg Castle, located in Hillerød, which is about an hour train ride away from Copenhagen.
After we got off the train, it’s a 10-15 minute walk from the train station to the castle. Not sure if it was because of the Easter holiday or if we were too early, but pretty much none of the shops were opened except for a few cafe and restaurants.
Unfortunately, the garden was in construction so we didn’t get to see the beautiful garden and greenery.
There was some time left in the day for us to visit another castle but we would have to take another train. We were thinking of grabbing a quick lunch before catching the train.
Since there weren’t a lot of restaurants to choose from we ended up at a place with no English menu. We used good old Google translate to order but little did I know, the omelette I ordered was baked and it took over 40 minutes to get our food.
We didn’t have enough time to make it to the other castle so we ended up going back to Copenhagen and explored the city until it was time for our dinner reservation.
The Olive Kitchen & Bar
We made reservations at The Olive Kitchen & Bar for dinner and they were able to seat us earlier than the time we reserved. I would 100% recommend this place! Great service, great food, and great ambience. What more can you ask for.
Blue mussels (white wine, garlic, cream) – The sauce was so flavorful.
Peppercorn steak (sweet potato puree, braised vegetables, peppercorn sauce) – We only ordered 1 order of the steak but they were thoughtful enough to split it into two plates!
French vanilla creme brûlée – sooo good
