What a stunning Disney like castle near Flensburg. The situation on the Fiord near The village of Glucksburg is gorgeous. It is a very reasonable €8 to go into the castle and is really beautifully preserved and interesting. There is an introductory video subtitled in...More

This schloss is special in several ways. It was never destroyed or abandoned, and so has maintained a lot of its original character. Inevitable renovations and additions through the years have not destroyed its character. Critically, since the 1920s a foundation has put a lot...More

The surroundings is great, the text is very informative, everything is in English, there are many things to see and admire. The entrance hall is a bit confusing with all the doors, some of which are just exits, so maybe a bit of labelling there...More

The Castle and surroundings are beautiful and worth a visit, but I think it's a bit of a rip-off, if you want to get inside. First you pat €2 to park, then €8 to get in, but on top of that you pay €1.5 to...More

A genuine water castle in original condition unchanged by modern tourism requirements. Plenty of parking available. Be sure to use the audio tour included with the admission ticket.

First, parking is not free! Bring Euro or Danish currency, so you can park. The place is easy to find, and really worth a visit. It´s very stunning inside and out and the staff are really helpful. I went Thursday 26th of June and spent...More

I came mainly because I wanted to check out the Glucksburg-Greek connection. (The royal house of Greece are a junior branch of the house of Glucksburg.) So I was disappointed to find that none of the people I asked knew anything about it. Never mind....More
