About Egeskov Castle, Odense

Just do a Google image search first; from every angle, this place looks straight out of a fairy-tale. It has been standing for 460 years as of 2014 aE an unassuming if enchanting building that was actually built for defensive purposes. The time of itaE™s building was a period of unrest and it remained that way over the centuries; the trained eye will notice the towers are cleverly positioned to flank attackers; thereaE™s thick double wall between the two longhouses that make up the building aE the idea being that invaders will have to overcome multiple levels of defence; the outer wall were built so that hot liquids and heavy solids could be rained down on anyone attempting to breach the wall.

A Since 198 though, much of the place has been opened up to the public. The main rooms to see include the Hunting Room for itaE™s game from Africa; the Yellow Room that contains some terrific furniture; the Banqueting Hall that can be hired out; the Rigborg Room, where a girl was once locked up for bearing a child out of wedlock, and which now contains a fabulous dollhouse(Titania aE™s Palace); the Victorian Room, the Tower Room and the AdmiralaE™s Room. And of course, check out the brilliant vehicle museums.

A The 20-acre garden park surrounding the place is beautiful in itself. Fountains, topiary figures and gravel paths coursing through beautifully kept greens make it a favourite with strollers. There are even four hedge mazes, one of which is several hundred years old; and the newest maze is the worldaE™s largest bamboo maze.

Egeskov Castle, Odense Reviews

  • Had the best trip of my life. Our family went in July of 2015. The best of luck was that the day we went, they were having a festival. We got to enjoy baking bread over fire, listening to live music, walks around all the bueatiful landscape, and all the tours. You must go early because it is a very large place. You have a lot to see!

  • One of the first true castles I visited in Europe. Classic design and architecture. The highlight for me was The Princess Doll house inside. Of course it’s much more than a doll house, it’s an amazing treasure. Tip: see if you can figure out the music box on display next to the mini castle. A little bit of mystery here!

  • Nice castle to visit. Good for family and couples alike. Definitely worth the trip here. Car enthusiast will be in for a surprise

  • A small, yet beautiful castle with much to see inside; the view from the garden is wonderful. The places around the castle are great for families: with toys, games, museums, and other attractions that makes the place very fun.

  • Fine place to spend a few hours with the kids
