Valdemar Castle is one of Funen`s most beautiful castles surrounded by amazing nature.

The castle was built 1639-44 for prince Valdemar, son of famous Christian IV and Kirstine Munk. Valdemar was only 8 years old when he took over the castle, which was then called Valdemar Castle and it was redesigned in classical Renaissance style.
