Gråsten Castle and Slotshave are beautifully located just 10 minutes from Lærkelunden. Surrounded by the South Jutland nature with forest and lake, the castle is definitely worth a visit, both for families and young adults. Many guests enjoy the many walking routes around the castle.
Gråsten castle dates from 1759 and is the successor to several castles that have been on the site since the 16th century. Over the years, it has been extensively used as a summer residence for several of the royals - especially King Frederik and Queen Ingrid. This is also one of the reasons why the castle is unfortunately not open to the public.
On the other hand, the castle church and garden are open and definitely worth a visit. The church is beautifully decorated with many beautiful details, and the garden as well - and that's regardless of what season you come by.
