Voergaard Castle

Voergaard Castle

Voergaard is among Denmark’s most beautiful renaissance castles, and inside you will find the finest private collection of art by Goys, Rafael and Rubens to name but a few. The oldest part of the castle dates to 1481, and the youngest to 1590.

Behind the wide moat and the meter-thick walls, you will also find the scariest ghost stories. The story of the domineering lady of the manor Ingeborg Skeel from 1580 will send shivers down the spines of the young and old alike. Perhaps you will catch a glimpse of her in the barrel-vaulted cellars or high up in the tower room.

During the summer, there are "Middle Ages days", where you can experience Voergaard in a medieval atmosphere and go back in time to 1530 and see “Stygge Krumpen”. Enjoy all the fun of the fair, music and other activities.
