The gate to Odsherred

Just an hour from the vibrant city of Copenhagen and Aarhus among green fields and the serenity of Danish nature lies the idyllic Dragsholm Castle. For more than 800 years the history of raging wars, prisoners being taking across the cobbles courtyard, and nobility getting married in the castle church has been taking place at this historic place.
Now a days guests can immerse themselves in tranquality and enjoy the majestic castle as a hotel experience in addition to it’s renowned restaurants. Aesthetic, history go hand in hand in these unique surroundings, where visitors have the chance to pamper themselves with a hot shower under the classic Christiansborg series in one of the baroque inspired rooms.
Like in many other historic castles in Denmark Dragsholm Castle is the home to the Christiansborg fixtures in brass. The natural and beautiful patina acts as a metaphor for the many centuries of inherent history.
Under whitewashed vaults, and with fire in the fireplace, a Michelin experience hides in the basement, whose aesthetics and expression are in tune with the castle's roots. A simpler serving can be enjoyed in one of Dragsholm's newer restaurants, where finesse, nature and local ingredients create coherence for both the food and the decor in the restaurants.

With a sense of old craftsmanship and historical preparations, the philosophy of the castle's kitchen is based on herbs from the castle's own herb garden, as well as seasonal local vegetables from the Lammefjord and surrounding forest, fields and beach.
