There is a great collcetion of cars, airplanes, agricultural machines and of vehicles used by the Falck-company, ( who is in charge of Firefighting and emergency rescue in Denmark).
Many of the cars that you will see in the museum were once used by the family and instead of selling them, they put them into the museum.
Fondest memory: They have a Season-ticket !
Once that you have payed the entrancefee once a year, you can register your name INside the park and I think that also a photo will be taken and then you might come back to Egeskov as often as you want to within the same year and enjoy all seasons of the great park without paying an extra entrance-fee !
Thats a really great idea, unfortunately I was there only for a single day and on a tight schedule, otherwise I could have stayed there another day, it is really enough to see and explore for more than just a single day !
The castle of Egeskov is still inhabited by the family of Count Michael Ahlefeldt-Laurig-Bille and is in posession of his family for more than 200 years now.
Fondest memory: The park is open to the public. For the Park, mazes, museums you have to pay an entrance fee of 150,- DKR and when you would also like to see the great interior of the castle, including great furniture, an interesting collection of hunting-trophees and Titania's Palace, you have to pay another 45 DKR extra.
This is the famous water-castle of Egeskov - but when I searched for it on my map, I was first shown a small village, on the mainland close to the bridge going to the Island of Fünen at Fredericia/Kolding.
THIS is the WRONG Egeskov !!!
so you better look for for this one on your map!
Fondest memory: But for this castle you have to take the road nr.9 from Odense to Svendborg and change to road Nr.8 at Kvaerndrup and go westwards and there you will see plenty of signs for the castle
