  • We visited Herzog Palace which is the landmark for the Cell, we visited the site due to our Danish Queen Caroline-Mathilde as opholdtsig here to death. The castle is beautiful with a nice park all around. We had thought there was furniture from Caroline's time but the rooms were empty and the curtains were rolled down so we could just go back on it. There have also been living a Germany adellig, which was made more out of the spaces. On the top floor, there was an exhibition of old uniforms, it was the most exciting for us to see
