About the movie

/A Castle within a Castle

Within its walls, Kronborg Castle in Elsinore contains large sections of another, older castle, Krogen, built by Eric of Pomerania around 1420. Discoveries unearthed during the 1926-1935 restoration of Kronborg made it possible to form a picture of Krogen, illustrated in the film by reconstruction models. The ground plans of the two castles match up perfectly, as Kronborg was built on top of Krogen. Exposed sections of walls, windows and rooms from the old castle can still be seen at Kronborg today.
