Egeskov Castle Funen Island Denmark Europe

The historic Egeskov Castle on the Island of Funen in Denmark was built with defense in mind, since it was built during a time of civil unrest in the 16th Century.



Egeskov slot (aka Egeskov Castle) on the Island of Funen located in the Baltic Sea represents one of the best preserved Renaissance castles in Europe.

Situated on large park like grounds, the castle sits on a small island surrounded by a lake, in the south of Funen Island in Denmark.

The castle got its name from the fact that a whole oak tree forest (Ege = Oak, Forest = skov) was felled to make room for the castle in the 16th century and were used to build the foundations of this historic building.
