About Dragsholm Slot


Dragsholm Slot was founded in approx. 1215 and is one of Denmark’s oldest serving secular buildings. Originally, the building was a bishop’s seat for the Bishop of Roskilde, Peder Sunesen, before becoming a royal castle following the Count’s Feud and the Reformation. It then became the splendid manor of a barony for a powerful noble family before being converted into a hotel and restaurant in 1937.

Over the past ten years, the ambition has been to recreate the castle as a profitable business and at the same time convey the castle’s cultural heritage in the context of its unique history and geography.

Today, the castle is a preferred destination for both national and international guests seeking to experience the castle’s unique surroundings, heritage and outstanding gastronomy.

The castle offers 41 hotel rooms in addition to meeting, function and conference facilities, a chapel, park, bistro, dining hall and a Michelin star restaurant. Dragsholm Slot is also a member of the prestigious hotel and restaurant guide Relais & Châteaux, whose members are among the world’s leading hotels and restaurants.
