This spectacular castle, one of the best preserved in Europe around the Renaissance, is located south of the Danish island of Fiona, about 20 minutes' drive from Odense. It is especially great due to the water around it and it has become almost like a Danish theme park. Be sure to look at the hours of operation because it usually closes early in the afternoon. Admission is 20 euros and allows you to take a stroll around the grounds (you must pay extra to look inside the grounds) and it also includes a second day in the summer. It is interesting to stroll around and see people with their picnic or eating a hot dog in one of the many spots. It is certainly one of the most beautiful places you can find in Denmark.
