The area was was pleasant. A fun car museum, with a lot of different cars on display. The kids loved the tree pathways.

You don't need to pay the entrance to the castle itself to fill a day here in the park and museums, as the other reviews attest.

Not many mention the food though, which was a uniquely bad experience - for us at least - in July 2011. We got the buffet in the central restaurant, and it was actually hard to find anything that wasn't half-frozen, stale, or just sub-standard. Check it out thoroughly before you buy. Or bring a packed lunch - Egeskov is perfect for a picnic.

So many things to do! This place deserves a whole day as everyone can find something to entertain themselves.

Great place to visit with the kids. They've got a huge playground with all kinds of gadgets and a treetop walkway with amazing views. The car and motorcycle museum is also worth visiting.

Egeskov Castle is a treasure of times of the Renaissance. Constructed in 1554 in the middle of a small lake, Egeskov is built upon the base from thousand oak logs.

There are ample parking, picnic and toilet facilities, as well as playgrounds for children. You will need around 4 hrs to explore the castle, 10 museums and extensive (15 hectares) English gardens, designed in 1700, with well-manicured green hedges and peacocks. There is lots to appreciate for bike and car enthusiasts.

My personal favourites are a 200-years old maze and a tree top walking experience. It makes an enjoyable day out for families and couples.
