Surrounded by forests, Hillerød is an ordinary small city with some extraordinary features: it's home to the lovely Frederiksborg Castle and within a short drive of the ruins of two medieval monasteries, at Æbelholt and Esrum. Nowadays the town, founded in the 15th century, is an important industrial area.
