This castle is a very beautiful historic site for sightseeing and taking pictures. It has a lovely collection, a restaurant where you can eat and have a cup of coffee. Souvenirs, magnets and postcards can also be purchased at the castle shop.

It is 40 SEK to enter, children up to 19 is free. It is a brief 15 minute walk from the central train station if you are coming from Copenhagen. There are signs to it everywhere.
