Glucksburger Schloss, Glucksburg

Used by both German and Danish royalty as a residence, Glucksburger Schloss appears to float atop the Flensburg Fjord. The family estate is now a privately run museum with rooms painstakingly redecorated the rooms to resemble the castle’s look in the days of dukes in Renaissance Germany. Admire not only the furnishings, but also the Rococo-era murals and artifacts from the 30 Years' War Take a look at our Glucksburg trip itinerary site to schedule your visit to Glucksburger Schloss and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • I would highly recommend this Castle as a day tour for the whole family. Tours are optional and self-guided with recording devices and headphones, and available in Danish, English and German. The cost of entry to the castle and optional self-guide devices is reasonable. There is so much to see, if you want to experience what a Renaissance castle would have looked like inside, and the self-guided tour is rich with information. If you opt not to take the self-guided tour, you won’t get the detailed history, but still have a wonderful time exploring this castle and won’t be disappointed.
  • Wonderful historic castle with its own museum, museum shop and has a restaurant in the castle cellars. The restaurant is only open tuesdays to sundays, from 6pm to 9pm. Holds a very rich and interesting Danish/German history. The castle also arranges a magical christmas market, which stretches from the courtyard and stables to the castle entrance and on the ground floor. This market has an entrance fee paid before one enters the bridge over the moat. Usually, the entrance fee to the castle is paid in the museum shop in the courtyard. There is a small parking lot at the castle by the main road, if there are no more spaces, drive past and stay on the main road. A few hundred metres there are several more parking spaces on your left hand. Wonderful spot all year round.
  • I have not been to inside of Castle but surroundings are very beautiful.
  • Beautiful fairy-castle on the water, with park and rosarium nearby. Nice place to spend a few hours. Parking and entrance to the castle with a charge.
  • A very beautiful and peaceful place.
