This castle built in the 17C and 18C and painted bright yellow is a fine example of Danish Baroque architecture. The main building is flanked by two identical wings forming a vast courtyard accessed via a monumental gate with a green copper campanile. The same family has lived here since 1739 and the castle still has its original furniture. The terraced garden descends towards a lake and is surrounded by a wooded park, which is also open to the public.
