Schackenborg Castle, originally called Møgeltønderhus (Møgeltønder House) can be traced back to the 13th century. The nowadays buildings were built in the mid-17th century and back then were owned by the Danish commander Hans Schack, hence the name Schackenborg Castle.
The castle is beautifully located at the approach to the charming old town of Møgeltønder. Here, the cobblestone main street bids you welcome and Schackenborg Slotskro invites you to lunch in the beautiful garden.
Stay in the Commander’s House
This holiday home, the commander's former residence, is just 900 metres from Schackenborg Castle itself. The property has just undergone a full renovation so that it now matches the rest of Schackenborg Castle. It can accommodate 16 overnight guests and some of the “new” interior comes from the very Schackenborg Castle.
