Sit back and indulge yourself in the castle’s elegant halls, salons and luxurious rooms. Enjoy gourmet food in Dragsholm Slot Gourmet or in the Bistro; recharge your batteries in the herb garden or admire the view from the watchman's passage.
Take a stroll along the beach, enjoy the park, sit out in the sun on the bastion or explore the ice age landscape that surrounds the castle by bicycle. Alternatively, go on an excursion by car or take the coastal railway to the many castles, museums and attractions that North Zealand and Copenhagen have to offer, most of which can be reached in just half an hour.
With 160 km of coastline, Odsherred enjoys some of Denmark’s finest beaches. They can best found along Sejerø Bay, out to the Kattegat and out to Isefjord. There are several good beaches within a short distance of Dragsholm Castle, which we have listed below. Visit Odsherred has good descriptions of all the beaches in Odsherred. The water quality of the more than 30 beaches is checked daily and signalled with the “Coast and Beach” flag, which you can read more about in the link under the name.
The landscape around Dragsholm Slot is recognised by UNESCO as a Geopark and offers natural and cultural experiences of the highest calibre. There are more than 300 km of hiking routes in the area.
360 DEGREE VIEW
Dragsholm - Vejrhøj - Dragsholm - an almost 10km long trip to Vejrhøj 121m above sea level and back.
The tour offers spectacular views over Lammefjorden and Sejerø Bay and also goes past the Sanddobberne beach.
On your way to Vejrhøj, it is possible to see the memorial to Baron Georg Frederik Otto Zytphen-Adeler of Dragsholm Slot, who took the initiative to build the dam.
THE HØJDERYGSTIEN PATH
A unique combination of landscape and history. This seven kilometre long path takes you on a walk through time past the Bronze Age burial mound, with magnificent views over Sejerø Bay and Lammefjord.
The beautiful peninsula of Ordrup Næs is only five kilometres away from Dragsholm Slot and stretches magnificently out into the sea.
Dragsholm Slot lies in picturesque spot next to Sejerø Bay, where the summer sun goes down in the sea next to the just 2 km2 Nekselø, the smallest of the islands in the bay. Further out in the bay, Sejerø is just over 12 km2. Both islands can be reached by ferry from Havnsø and are fantastic excursions.
Nekselø is a scenic and listed pearl of an island, created during the ice age and is perfect for a good picnic and hike. The island can be reached from Havnsø in just 20 minutes, where there is regular ferry service to the island.
One hour’s ferry crossing from Havnsø will take you to Sejerø which, like Nekselø, is a lateral moraine hill landscape from the Ice Age. The island is 12 km long and enjoys many hours of sunshine over its hilly landscape and many small beaches.
Odsherred is full of good food. Lammefjord was dammed in 1873 by the baron of the castle Georg Frederik Zytphen Adeleris and is the point of departure for all the work we do in our kitchens. In the middle of the Lammefjord region - in Fårevejle Stationsby - is UNESCO Geopark Odsherred’s visiting field, where you can experience many of the vegetables that are grown in the Lammefjord region.
The wines in Odsherred and Røsnæs are among the best wines that are grown in Denmark. The castle’s local area features award-winning vineyards, which are all worth visiting.
WINE VISITS IN ODSHERRED
Visit one of our local producers and find out about their work to make Danish wines. Or go on a day trip around the wine area. For example, start your trip at Ørnberg Vin in Lumsås 30 km from the castle and continue along the coast back to Vejrhøj Vingård a good km north of the castle and finish off with a visit to Dyrehøj Vingård at Røsnæs 35 km from Dragsholm Slot.
