“Nothing special here, apart from the hunting museum”
Review of Valdemars Slot

Valdemars Slot
Ranked #1 of 124 things to do in Svendborg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Neither the castle, nor the gardens are something really special.
The castle itself consists of two floors. On the first one there are some old rooms with old stuff. Old plates, old furniture etc.. stuff that even your grandma might have! There are also paintings of the old owners and pictures (I mean color photographs) of the newer or current owners everywhere.
On the second floor there is the hunting museum where you can see a large variety of hunting rifles and many preserved animal carcasses that are really impressive if you like hunting. There are also many kinds of fish and birds.
The entrance fee is 85dkk with no reduced ticket for students, and photography in the castle is forbidden.
In my opinion there is no reason for you to go there unless you are really into hunting! The egeskov castle is a better choice.

The best New Years eve celebration ever. The food, wines, dancing, athmosphere superb. All the rooms were lit with candle lights as were the grounds. The fireworks at midnight were memorable.

Uninspiring and boring grounds and castle. Only interesting if you're into stuffed animals as there was a museum in the building. Lousy cafe as well.

Has beautiful gardens but was unfortunately under renovation and things were a bit messy. A beautiful place none-the-less and somewhere worth visiting if in the area.

A very pleasant experience at the castle and in Cafe Æblehaven - but DO NOT EAT at the restaurant under the church. Completely lack of kindness and bad serving at VERY high prices
