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.

Egeskov Castle, Odense Reviews
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.
Absolutely must to see during visit in Denmark. Museums open for vistors are amazing and very good equipped. Nice playgrounds for children. It needs minimum 4 hours to see all attractions.
This is such a beautiful day out! We spent about 4 hours admiring the amazing motor cycle and vintage car collection, walking through the stunning gardens and then taking in all the history of the amazing castle. Couldn't recommend it enough.
Fantastic castle, with large green areas, and playing areas for kids, with the entrance tickets you'll also be able to visit the museum of cars, airplane, motorcycle and fire fighters.. In the park there is also an Italian restaurant which is very good (trust me I'm from Italy!) all the experience is Highly recommended!
Haven't been inside the castle but the gardens are amazing! I loved walking around in such a peaceful environment, among colorful flowers, majestic peacocks and elegant swans... Would totally recommend a visit!
