1554年、ルネッサン様式の美しい城は森一つ分の樫の木を使用して建立された。城の頂上部分に入るとその堅牢さ
を確認出来る。池の中に映える城の姿はどこから見てもすばらしい。当時は広大な敷地に鹿が放され狩りの対象と
されたようだ。城はオーデンセの中心地から南へ30分くらい走行したところにある。付近には茅葺き屋根の民家が
点在する。

1998年、オーデンセのあるフユン島とコペンハーゲンのあるジーランドとを隔てていたストア海峡が世界で2番目に
長い吊り橋によって結ばれた。その結果、デンマークは欧州大陸と陸続きとなった。Great Belt Bridge and Tunnel
と言われる構築物は鉄道と自動車道とが併設されている西橋と自動車道路のみの東橋とに分かれる。鉄道は東橋の
部分で海底トンネルをくぐる。鉄道と自動車道との全長は18キロ、この長い長い橋を快走する開放感はやはり車で
しか味わうことは出来ないだろう。すばらしい体験であった。

コペンハーゲンから 車でOresundStrait の海を右手に望みながら北上すると、1時間ほどでヘルシンゴーの町に着く。
列車ではコペンハーゲン中央駅からマルマ始発のデンマーク国鉄の列車で44分、コペンハーゲン鉄道共通の24時間
券はヘルシンゴーまで利用範囲に含まれるので、この券を使えば安価に往復出来る。クロンボー城はシエクスピアの
「ハムレット」の舞台となったことでも知れているがデンマークのルネッサンス式建築のなかの秀作とされている。
城の屋上からの展望はすばらしい。
