Airbnb’s Latest: A Night in Hamlet’s Castle

Hamlets Castle Bed Chamber

You have until 11:59 p.m. April 13 to compose your most eloquent request, argument, or plea for a night in the King’s Tower of Kronborg Castle in Helsingør, Denmark. The night in question is the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, so it’s only fitting that submissions should be judged on both artistic merit (extra points for submissions written in iambic pentameter) and philosophical heft (“Particularly, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the topics of justice, revenge, and morality,” Prince Hamlet says. “I find my mind preoccupied with these topics in particular these days.”) The prize is worth your best effort even if you did hate high school English: A 7-course banquet for 300 partygoers dressed in Elizabethan attire, breakfast in the royal canopy bed, and the skull of poor Yorick on the nightstand.
