I first saw Valdemars Slot through closed gates in the middle of winter in 1982. Since then, I have longed to return to see this amazing castle again. In late summer 2016 I finally realised my dream. This is an incredible place to visit - it's like stepping back into the ancien regime. One feels as if one is immersed... More

This old family home is an interesting visit and set in lovely grounds. The house is nice to see and has some interesting history. But there are also various activities for a family group. We enjoyed the day sitting in the sun at the cafe and on the beach and walking the grounds. Very nice - but definitely a fair... More

After having spent four nights in Copenhagen, taking in its various tourism treats including several fabulous castles and palaces, we drove down to Fyn for three nights, planning to enjoy some of what this special area of Denmark has to offer. On the second day, after visiting the relatively disappointing Nyborg Slot, we drove down the 40 minutes or so... More

From Svendborg harbor we went by boat, the nicely restored MS Helge, to the Slot. The trip takes a little less than an hour and stops at several points. The slot itself has a large amount of hunting trophy's and a mini golf outside. The tea shop has a nice view over the water. With children you'd better go to... More

After visiting the castle you can try the Danish specialities in the restaurant in the basement. Not only were they tasty, but excellent value along with good and friendly service !!!

You can't really beat a wander around a Danish castle, in the rain, on a slightly cold day, when you can't really decide what else to do. But it is a pretty castle, the house is nice enough, the grounds are pretty and the view across the sund is quite spectacular. If you have time take a wander down to... More

My boyfriend and I visited during our trip to Odense last summer – the castle is about a 50 minute drive from the city. It really is a beautiful castle, but the grounds are not that exciting. We have visited a lot of castles over the years, and I don’t feel that Valdemars Slot really had that much going on,... More

Public transport no longer arrives to the castle itself, but the walk (around a kilometer from where the bus leaves you off) is nice specially in the summer, with trees and fields of wheat or similar lining the way. The castle has various buildings beyond the main one (included some on the photos) and offers a great little (expensive as... More
