Must see · Castle · Tourist Spot
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.

  • nice park ans castle, also a lot to do inside, when bad weather hits you. Dogs are allowed which is great. but very touristic.  more »
  • Loved the whole experience. The castle was cool but the grounds were better (especially the mazes). The car exhibition was very nice too.  more »
  • The best experience on Fyn. The perfect blend of classic and modern. Lots of place to relax, explore the outdoor maze and enjoy the car and motorbikes collections. The gardens and exquisite and the food is delicious. Double the fun when visiting during special events.
  • Lovely castle surrounded by all those beautiful gardens, open space and trees. Perfect spot for picnic in the weekend. Could spend a whole day without feeling bored or tired. The eclectic museums are a must-see as well.
