A very exiting castle to explore with an interesting history. It is well explained on posters as you walk around. The view from the top is beautiful and we were sure it would be haunted by ghosts at nightūüėČ. People in period costumes were selling...More

Sp√łttrup Castle is one of the very few wellpreserved danish castles dating from the middleages; most have been either torn down or thoroughly modernized during later periods. Sp√łttrup was probably finished in the 1520's when it was owned by the Viborg bishop J√łrgen Friis. The...More

A little off the beaten track but well worth the effort. Well preserved and great educational focus. Something for all ages and shows how the castle evolved over the centuries with each owner adding to it's story.

We first visited "Sp√łttrup Slot" (the Danish name) back in the 1990s. Since that time they've added flower and vegetable gardens, grounds, and a nice big visitor center and gift shop. The castle has a few pieces of old furniture and some interesting artifacts and...More

A visit to this place is definately worth it. The museum-building looks new and is beautifully built. The toilets looks luxurious! If you walk through the museum you walk down a nice road to the castle. You can walk around all around the castle. Fun...More
