Egeskov Slot, Denmark

From series “The Most Wonderful Castles and Palaces”
Year: 16th century.

Amongst the fairy-tale and most famous castles in Europe you have to mention the Danish town of the same name. This castle was built in the 16th century and is surrounded by the deep moat. Its territory can only be traced to the only drawbridge. After the foundation was built the incredibly beautiful garden around the medieval castle. Like many years ago, you can see the wonderful peacocks and hear the song of songbirds hidden in lush tree tops.

One of the main secrets of the old castle is the wonderful doll house 'Queen Titania', which is considered a real antiquarian masterpiece. Once, the castle belonged to the well-known English painter and officer Newil Wilkinson, whose young daughter had asked the father to build the special castle for the elf queen Titania. The loving father realized the daughter's request and built the incredibly beautiful dollhouse, whose furnishings were just as splendid as the interiors of the luxurious palace.

The old castle is very popular with the tourists with the children. According to one of the legends, if their visitors behaved well during the last eight days, they can meet Queen Titania in the castle. Besides the magical unique doll house, visitors can see the expositions of four most interesting museums in Egeskov Castle, as well as the dark medieval labyrinths. Next - Castelul Peles
