Create an itinerary including Egeskov Castle
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.

  • All day stop! Be careful when think through how long you're going to spend at this masterpiece of history! There is many exhibits Cara, armor, a doll house, toys, rooms, and gardens. 4 separate hedge mazes and play grounds! The castle is only a portion of this lovely treasure, really it deserves a bit of research into what all it holds before going and I wouldn't give it less then 5 hours, there's so much to see. You could wander through the flowers and mazes that long and never see two thirds of the property. Parking is easy and tickets are reasonable.
  • It is a very pleasant location where you have something to do. I really enjoyed visiting this castle. Being from Romania, especially from the Transylvania region where there are many castles, I really like to visit castles, and this one is very beautiful both, inside and outside.❤️🇩🇰
  • Picture perfect castle still owned by the family; some Counts of Denmark. About €25 entry but there is lots for your money. A lovely castle, an exhibition on some amazing clothes worn by the family, a vintage car, plane, outdoor camping, motorcycle and rescue vehicles display. A playground that will satisfy any child, loads of places to eat, toilets, free parking, gorgeous gardens, plus you can camp overnight for a fee. Highly recommended
  • Amazing place. If you're looking for a cozy place with awesome sights and cool history behind it - you should consider coming here. But consider doing so on working days, otherwise there's a huge crowds of people.
  • Only went round half of this amazing place, due to on our way back from a visit elsewhere. Looking forward to visiting the rest next time we are over. Loved looking round the old transport up to modern day transport. Could spend all day in this part alone.
