This privately owned manor was a nice Sunday afternoon visit. Although you're not allowed to touch anything, there are no 'ropes', and you can walk freely amongst the furniture and admire each object from close by.
Local Danish and French cuisine are served here. There's also Café Æblehaven and you can do picnics. You can also do grand dinners and weddings in the castle itself.
The admission fees for Valdemars Slot area bit unclear as they also give entrance to a number of other museums on the castle grounds.
You can find the entrance fees here
Unique Suggestions: At the ticket counter, ask specifically which ticket you want. Depending on the time you have to visit the castle and its museums. The lowest ticket price is 50 DKK (6,71 euro in 2007). This gives you entry to the castle, the Big Trophy Game museum (in the attic of the castle) and the park.
In its grand days the castle needed an enormous amount of staff. It was essentially a small community that kept everything up and running. In the corridor towards the servants quarters, there were posters to explain how many people were needed for housekeeping, gamekeeping, the grounds, teachers for the school, people that worked in the castle chapel, etc. etc.
Unfortunately, we couldn't make photo's in the state rooms in the castle. But there was nobody in the cellar kitchen when I was there and I photographed to my hearts delight. Kitchens have my interest anyway and nothing can be damaged by shooting pics there.
So here goes....
