“An unexpected gem in Denmark”
Review of Egeskov Castle

We spent a couple days in Copenhagen before we hopped on a Baltic cruise and saw all the sights around Copenhagen. After the cruise we decided to spend 4 more days in Denmark exploring the country by car. We visited many castles/museums on Zealand but decided to venture further out and heard about Egeskov castle/museum/gardens. It's about 2 1/2 hr drive from Copenhagen so venture out rather early. If you're driving, WARNING, the toll across the bridge is 235 DK / $40 roughly. But, it's worth it for a very enjoyable day. We had a cloudy day, even a little drizzle, but the grounds are beautiful, if you're into cars or motorcycles, there is a museum for those, even some airplanes. The gardens rival some of the best gardens we've seen anywhere. Lots to do and see, wander the grounds, take a picnic lunch with you.
Worth the drive.

Went there with my family, we had a great day in nice weather. The gardens surrounding the castle is very nice for a stroll around, you can bring your own food if you like or grab a bite at the cafe. The castle itself has a nice enough exhibition, but the gardens is whats the best to see in my opinion, well worth the visit, expect to spend close to half a day if you want to look around.

The castle is beautiful and inside it is very educational and interesting, but after 1 hour walking around inside the castle with the kids, the best is you get to enjoy the labyrinth in the gardens, multiple games for kids and tree-top walking.

But if that was not enough, the old motorcycles and old cars museum is fantastic, with a huge collection and the whole family loved the flak (fire cars museum). Well worth the stop-over and the cost of the entrance.
