Egeskov Castle - Review

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.

  • A great experience with kids! In addition to an impressive castle, the place features a big variety of joyful activities for the whole family: a number of different playgrounds, a big maze, a carting track, a set of rope bridges set up high in the trees, a museum with an impressive and rare collection of old cars, motorbikes and bicycles. There were even a couple of airplanes and a helicopter there! There are beautiful gardens with fruit trees, vegetables and a huge array of flowers. The only drawback was the prices of food and drinks at the estate.

  • Great place to spend a day outdoors. Lots of things to do and see, not only for kids. Fantastic exhibition of classic cars and motorcycles. A tour of the castle and garden is also very interesting. For food either bring your own or enjoy the pretty good restaurant.

  • Fantastic place, stunning castle and the most beautiful garden that I have seen. It is an amazing place for people all ages, you can easily spend a whole day here with not getting bored. In the garden there was several beautiful peacocks just walking around. For the children it is many other activities than just watching the castle and the garden, large playgrounds, small kids car to drive around in, and mutch more. There is also a very nice picnic area if you don't want to use the restaurants around in the area. The different restaurants has good and varied menu with reasonable prices.

  • We had a wonderful afternoon at Egeskov. Our only regret was not planning enough time for the visit : it is quite extensive and we should have planned half a day to make the most of the visit. The gardens are very impressive, especially the vegetable garden and the Renaissance garden. The interior of the castle is not quite impressive but worth a tour. However the collections of cars, motorcycles and all king of planes hellicopters and fireman trucks were extremely impressive. The place is also very well thought for kids and definitely worth a day if you are visiting with family. Do bring food with you as the local restaurant is not really up to the rest.

  • Your family will enjoy the full day here. Wonderfull park, interesting castle, attractions for children, museum of veterans (motorbikes, cars, planes, fire trucks...), old and the new labyrinth, walk in crowns of the trees.. Castle views are different but always nice from various parts of the park, definitely walk around. And don't forget to visit the attic of the castle with interesting museum and views of the park
