We awoke the next morning and hopped on the local train from Copenhagen Central Station to Hillerød for a day trip to Frederiksborg Castle in the suburbs of Copenhagen. In less than an hour, we'd arrived. We strolled through the charming town of Hillerød.
We were headed, more or less, toward the castle when we chanced upon Chokolade Mageriet. We can never resist popping into a chocolate shop. In this case, little did we suspect that this chance visit would lead to an amazing discovery...
We spotted shelf after shelf of thick chocolate domes.
We passed over the moat and into the inner sanctum.
We discovered a small cafe in an arcade in Hillerød called Engelhardt's.
A couple of generously sized Smørrebrød and a cup of tea was just what we needed to warm up and get ready to continue to explore Copenhagen.
