About shakespeare festival

Every year in August you can experience original Shakespeare theatre under the open sky. The stage is built over the moat and has the beautiful Kronborg Castle as impressive back drop. 

The festival site holds a 660 seating, and the theatre bar is open from 4.00 pm and in the break during the performance. It is possible to buy cold and hot drinks, snacks and a program.

All performances are performed in the open air at the Shakespeare Festival. Our visitors are recommended to bring appropriate warm, wind and waterproof clothes. The theatre bar sells warm blankets and waterproof capes, in case you need it.
