Great place for a stopover with kids. (Ours are 6, 8 & 10). It took an hour or so to drive there from Legoland and we managed to do the flying fox, walk along the tree top bridges and run through the maze in an hour. Sadly we did not have time to go into the castle and some other... More

This castle is the epitome of what we all believe a castle should be. In many ways, one can visualise the original fortification as a mode of defence. Yet, it is also clear that this castle was a home and, while this does seem completely natural too, it also seems a little incongruous. Victorian clutter in an ancient structure built... More

Beautiful castle and vast gardens. You can spend 3 hours at this place. There is an automobile museum which is interesting. There are some informal dining options at the site. However, it is an hour's drive to this place from Odense.

The pictures on TA do not do this castle justice. Its absolutely beautiful and you could easily spend 2 days here exploring all of the gardens and museums. This was definitely my favorite day by far the week I spent in Odense.

I went there on a rainy day, unfortunately (gotta love the Danish weather), but the rain stopped for about half an hour, so I got to see most of the castle surroundings without needing a raincoat or an umbrella (I had an umbrella with me, but I bought an Egeskov raincoat anyway, as a souvenir which I later used at...

We visited this Castle without children and we were amazed at all there is to see for families or just adults. The Castle is set on massive grounds with several museums and lovely gardens. Restaurants and entertainment for children are plentiful. We enjoyed this stately Castle with drawbridge and moat surround. We were amazed to find a large transportation museum... More

You have a perfect place for a whole day visit with a family here. I knew just for a castle and castle garden before visit. After a visit I know that they can make a nice story from an average castle (as architecture). It is preserved, arranged for visitors from the parking area to the last spot. You can walk... More

My wife and I are spending ten days in Denmark...and with a focus on castles and palaces, having completed four days in Copenhagen, we rented a car and drove down to spend three days in Svendborg. Took about two hours, but on the way we stopped at Egeskov. And in this case, as spectacular as the photographs on the web... More
