The New Visitor's Centre adapts discretely and beautifully to the landscape, offers a fantatic view to the Castle ruin and sports an informative, unobtrusive introduction to the castle's and the island's history. Top class!

1) Wonderful location. 2) A tourist trap since you have to walk much further IF YOU DONT come at regular opening hours (where you can pass the visitor center)

If the least interested in history visit Hammershus. If not interested in history visit for the lovely view from top of the hill (they knew how to best place their fortresses in the past).
