Egeskov Castle And The Most Beautiful Park In All Of Denmark.

While crossing Funen "Fyn" we decided to make a detour to Egeskov Castle at the southern part of the island.


Egeskov Castle, Denmark.

Egeskov Castle.


The castle itself, which is still in use as a family home by Count Michael Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille, provides a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the nobility in times gone by.

The Castle was completed in 1554 and is built in the middle of a lake on a foundation of oak pilings.
A few years back the moat around the building dried out, due to lack of rain and a very dry summer, and the oak foundation was exposed and there were concerns that the castle itself would collapse into the moat, so they had to pump water into the moat from elsewhere.

The Castle has 66 rooms, 200 windows with more than 2,062 panels of glass and 171 doors, it employs 150 people during the season.

At the castle you will also find the The world’s largest doll house “Titania’s Palace” the doll's house took 15 years to complete and contains 3,000 components, many of them small art treasures collected from around the world.


The Ten Museums.


Apart from the Castle itself there are ten museums on site offering something for everyone, fine old aircrafts,a big collection of more than 500 very well maintained veteran cars, motorcycles and mopeds.

The Grocer’s museum, with an authentic 1930’s atmosphere, that will bring you back in time. A delightful collection of dolls and doll’s houses.


The Gardens.


The most beautiful park in Denmark, with 3 mazes and numerous well-tended gardens.
