Soaring Scandinavian Castles

The first Scandinavian castle I visited was Kronborg in Denmark. My husband and I took the train from Copenhagen to Elsinore on a cold, bone-soaked, rainy day, questioning our decision for the length of the hour-long journey. We could have luxuriated in our beautiful room at the historic Hotel d’Angleterre and had tea sent up to the room, but we knew we were unlikely to return to Denmark any time soon. The castle and its story linking to Shakespeare’s Prince Hamlet was too much to resist, and our decision to go became a highlight of our stay.

Hotels Paving the Way to a Greener Future

IN THE BACKGROUND, the dusky blue-black ice of the Svartisen Glacier glimmers in a thick wedge of still-frozen slopes above the Arctic Circle. Below, vertical shapes springing from a Norwegian forest provide a living, evergreen contrast to the deep waters stroking the shores of the Holandsfjorden fjord. Rising from the depths, its feet thrust securely into the fjord’s bed, are the wooden legs and underpinnings of Svart. This epic structure, circular and serene in design, is the world’s first Powerhouse hotel constructed in a northern climate, set to open in 2021.
