Schackenborg Castle

South in Jutland you will find this magnificent historic castle and surroundings.

The beautiful baroque castle is built in the early 1660’s by the count and war hero Hans Schack.

Earlier the house called Møgeltønderhus served as protection against the Frisians in the south, but it also guarded the waterway that joined Vidå to Tønder.


Became royal property

The castle belonged to the von Schack family until 1978; it reverted to the Danish Royal Family.

From 1995 to 2014 the castle was the home of Prince Joachim of Denmark and his family. When the Prince moved here in 1995, he was presented a "Nations Gift". The national collection of 7 million Danish kroner, was later used for restoration of the castle.


Guided tours

In 2014 Prince Joachim and his family moved out and the castle was sold from the Royal Family to a foundation.

During the summer the castle and foundation offers guided tours at the castle and the beautiful surrounding castle park. You will also find the cosy Schackenborg Castle Inn nearby.
