Wonderlost Wednesday: Egeskov Castle

I don’t only love to explore foreign cultures and their histories, I also like to explore my own culture. As such, I wanted to highlight one of my favourite Danish tourist sights – a real Danish treasure: The privately owned Egeskov Castle.

Egeskov Castle is this renaissance castle located on the island of Funen. Dating back to the 16th century, the castle has a lot of history, which my family and I explored through various exhibitions inside and outside of the castle back in 2013. The castle, namely, exhibits not only furniture and clothing from the era, however, also a vintage collection of automobiles and motorcycles along with airplanes and helicopters. Moreover, as the exhibitions are not solely restricted to the area, we also got an insight into Denmark at the time: Social norms, behavior and agriculture. As if this wasn’t enough, we spent hours in the stunning gardens where we enjoyed a delicious meal at the castle’s restaurant.
All in all, Egeskov Castle is definitely one of the tourist attractions worth visiting should you ever find yourself in Denmark.
