Dragsholm Castle was founded in approximately 1215 and is thus Denmark's second oldest functioning secular building. Originally, the building functioned as a bishop's seat for Roskilde's bishop Peder Sunesen, then as a royal palace after "Grevens Fejde" and the Reformation, then a splendid residence and barony for a powerful noble family - before the castle was converted into a hotel and restaurant in 1937.
In the past ten years, the ambition has been to recreate the castle as a profitable business and at the same time convey it as cultural heritage and narrative in the middle of the historical and geographical context.
Today, the castle is a preferred destination for both national and international guests who want to experience the castle's unique surroundings, cultural history and fantastic gastronomic endeavors.
The castle contains 41 rooms, party and meeting rooms, a church, a park, a bistro, a café and a 1-star Michelin restaurant. Dragsholm Castle is also a member of the prestigious hotel and restaurant guide Relais & Châteaux, which houses the world's elite of the hotel and restaurant scene.
