The city of Hillerød stands on the island of Zealand in eastern Denmark, 25 miles north of Copenhagen. Hillerød may be at the end of the capital's commuter train system but it feels pretty rural. It's surrounded by some of Denmark's largest forests and Esrum Sø, one of Denmark's largest lakes. These are great areas to explore with a hire car in Hillerød. On the shore of the lake you'll find the magnificent Royal residence, Fredensborg Palace. The extensive gardens are open all year round. Further afield, it's easy to reach North Zealand's popular seaside resorts, like Hornbæk, Gilleleje and Tisvilde.
Hillerød's number one attraction is Frederiksborg Castle, an intact 16th-century royal fortress right in the heart of the city. The castle includes a museum, baroque gardens and relics of the Danish kings who once lived here. Visitors with a hire car can tour the rest of Hillerød's sights too. These include the city's own museum of local history, a busy cultural centre and the ruins of two large monasteries. The 'Adventure Park' is an outdoor activity centre with bike tracks, paintball areas and forest obstacle courses. Look out too for the city's golf club and family-friendly waterpark/pool complex.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
