History of the castle
Valdemar's Castle was built back in 1639-1644 by King Christian IV for his son Valdemar Christian, hence the name Valdemar's Castle, but Valdemar Christian never got to live in the castle. The Danish naval hero Niels Juel bought the castle in 1678 and began a huge renovation, as the castle was much damaged after the Scanian War. The castle, as we know today with the yellow Gatehouses and the Tea Pavilion, are made by the architect Tchierske, who created the castle complex in the 18th century. Valdemar’s Castle has belonged to the genus Juel since 1678, and today is owned by the 12th generation.
If you want to go for a swim, you can take a dip in Lunkebugten bay right behind the beautiful Tea Pavilion. There are restrooms and shower close to the parking lot.
