Egeskov Castle, Odense

4.6
Admire the best preserved moat castle in Europe at Egeskov Castle. Built by Frands Brockenhuus and completed in 1554, the castle contains 66 rooms, six bathrooms, and four different mazes within the gardens. Notice that the castle is built on oaken piles and surrounded by a 5 m (16 ft) lake. When it was constructed, the area was experiencing periods of civil unrest, so many noblemen built their homes to act as fortifications. Explore the Hunting and Yellow rooms on the ground floor, and the banquet hall, Rigborg, Victorian, music, tower, and admiral's rooms on the first floor. Be sure to stop at Titania's Palace, an intricate dollhouse containing more 3,000 components, constructed by Sir Nevile Wilkinson for his daughter.

  • Egeskov Castle should be visited because there are many experiences waiting for the whole family. Beautiful park-intriguing museums with lots of Danish history, beautiful castle with access (extra ticket) which is located in a water pit, as well as a huge playground with treewalking between the tall old trees. Beautiful Peacocks also meet on its way. Bring food basket or eat at Italian café, or barbecue/sausages etc several places. REMEMBER to visit Count Dracula which is located in its open crib the entrance tickets are a bit pricey-but you easily get a full day to go.

  • Firstly, we could not use the free tickets I had gotten to the Funen attractions-despite the fact that this information is not to find some places. Secondly, the castle itself was closed.
