Egeskov Castle, Odense

4.6
Admire the best preserved moat castle in Europe at Egeskov Castle. Built by Frands Brockenhuus and completed in 1554, the castle contains 66 rooms, six bathrooms, and four different mazes within the gardens. Notice that the castle is built on oaken piles and surrounded by a 5 m (16 ft) lake. When it was constructed, the area was experiencing periods of civil unrest, so many noblemen built their homes to act as fortifications. Explore the Hunting and Yellow rooms on the ground floor, and the banquet hall, Rigborg, Victorian, music, tower, and admiral's rooms on the first floor. Be sure to stop at Titania's Palace, an intricate dollhouse containing more 3,000 components, constructed by Sir Nevile Wilkinson for his daughter.

  • Beautiful castle and garden with a lot of activities for the entire family. Loved the Halloween theme.  more »
  • Outside the season we were here on a rainy day, so the number of visitors was very manageable. The visit to the castle was just as interesting as the other exhibitions - from the motorcycle museum to the vintage car museum to the rescue service museum. The gardens and playgrounds are spacious and very beautifully laid out and there are enough benches and tables to eat food brought with you. For a family with three children we have paid about 100 €, whereby the entrance fee depends on the season. Overall highly recommended with a good price-performance ratio.
