Are you crazy about history, or does the royal family interest you? Book a tour of Schackenborg Castle and get all the stories from one of our skilled guides and see the beautiful buildings up close - also from the inside.

When you enter the castle square at Schackenborg, take a walk in the beautiful castle park or walk around the castle's beautiful halls and rooms, you walk in footsteps that stretch a thousand years back in time and maybe even longer.

Hear about the time Møgeltønderhus, which the castle was named from the beginning, was one of the bastions of the Danish Crown and Church in the battle with the Holstein Counties. Also look forward to the many stories about the construction of Schackenborg and the 11 generations of Schack who have lived at Schackenborg Castle - you have, for example. Ever heard of the Silver Heat, or do you know who the Evil Countess is?

In 1978 the castle returned to the Danish Royal House. The Prince couple lived at the castle until 2014 and now use it as their second home.

Schackenborg Castle is located in front of the idyllic Slotsgade in Møgeltønder. Do not cheat yourself for a walk in the beautiful Slotsgade when you visit Schackenborg Castle.

This is a "both" and "bike ride." In bicycles both in Denmark and Germany. You both see the story of the hardworking
farmers in the Tønder marsh and the history of the impressive royal mansion, Schackenborg. And the bike ride goes through both the small peaceful villages and to Denmark's oldest market town, Tønder, with trade and activity.

The tour is described here based on the Tønder Art Museum (1), but you can start anywhere. Østergade, which is the pedestrian street in Tønder, is highly recommended despite the fact that you have to pull the bike. Here you will find, among other things, Tønder-Romo Tourist Association (2) and several restaurants and cafes.

At the railway track, follow the cycle path to Plantagevej, which leads out of Tønder. The tour now goes towards the former comforts of Hans Royal Highness Prince Joakim in the form of Schackenborg Castle (3), which is located in Denmark's most beautiful village, Møgeltønder. With high ceilings, close to marsh and sea, Møgeltønder lies and most of all resembles an adventure with the beautiful cobbled castle street.

On the road north of Møllevej you see the signs towards Slotfeldt (4). In the fantastic barn there is an exhibition about the Golden Horns found here and about the history of the area. Trade and operation are characterized by Höjer (5), which offers two unique sausage factories, Höjer Sausser and Marsk Sausser. It may be difficult to choose, but the purchase can be enjoyed at Höjer Mill, which since 1857 has served as a landmark for the city. Just south of Höjer you can take a detour to Höjer Sluse (1 km) or Vidå Sluse (2 km).

The barrel marsh (6) is an impressive sight. Sky and sea and Denmark's largest meadow of approx. 2500 hectares. Here is a rich wildlife, and with quiet pedal turns you can enjoy both the sound of the many birds and the sight of lambs grazing peacefully in the beautiful surroundings.
At the end of Siltoftvej lies the old border crossing between Denmark and Germany (7). The road is followed to the German side, where the route goes along narrow roads towards Rosenkranz / Rudbøl (8). At this historic border crossing, people of all ages have been photographed by a historic stone in the road. By standing with scattered legs in the middle of the stone, one stands with one leg in Denmark and one leg in Germany. On the Danish side of the border at Rudbøl Lake (9) a well-deserved rest can be taken on the benches by the lake shore.

The view invites relaxation and immersion, and you easily forget that the legs have already passed many kilometers. The new forces can now be used on the road to Møgeltønder, where there is often a fresh wind. In Møgeltønder it is recommended to take around the Reunion Stone (10) from 1939 before the walk along Villegårdsvej and then tramp past ECCO (11) before Tønder reappears. The beautiful market town of Tønder is perfect for relaxing after a long and eventful day. Here, there are plenty of opportunities to quench the thirst or get hungry, while observing the city's beautiful buildings.

When you enter the castle square at Schackenborg Castle or take a walk in the beautiful castle park, you walk in footsteps that stretch back a thousand years in time and maybe even longer. Here once was the powerful Ribebisp at the first castle, Møgeltønderhus, and here a national war hero built his castle.

For 11 generations, his descendants, the distinguished and influential Schack family, Schackenborg lived before the castle returned in 1978 to the Danish royal house.

All year round, unique experiences await at Schackenborg Castle. Explore the history of the centuries, take a guided tour of the beautiful castle park or pass the old horse stable where an exciting visitor center is erected. Schackenborg's program offers both classical concerts, lectures, debate events and more.

The south wing of the castle was formerly a private residence for Prince Joachim and Princess Marie and their children, when the Prince comes home to Schackenborg Castle then the royal flag flags high.

The beautiful Baroque castle was built in the early 1660s by the warlord and war hero Hans Schack.

FACILITIES

The area around Møgeltønder has proud historical traditions - this is where the Golden Horn was found more than 350 years ago. The historic barn Slotfelt at Schackenborg has been restored and made the focal point for the dissemination of the region's history, art and culture. Behind the new Guldhorn- & Kulturcenter Slotfelt stands Schackenborg Estate, Tønder Municipality and Realdania.

Opening hours are daily at. 10 am - 5 pm through week 42.


The horns were found individually in two laps. The girl Kirsten Svendsdatter found the long golden horn on July 20, 1639, and on April 21, 1734, the short horn was found by the husbandman Erik Lassen.

Both horns were found near Møgeltønder at Gallehus, which is 10 min. walking and 2 min. drive from Schackenborg Castle.

However, you can learn a lot about the Golden Hornets in Lock field loading in Møgeltønder.

Sky high, close to marsh and sea, lies Møgeltønder and most of all looks like an adventure. In the fairy tale is Schackenborg Castle - situated on the beautiful cobbled castle street where ducks roam during the day and old lamps glow at night. Schackenborg Castle, privileged in 1687, is the closest neighbor to Schackenborg Castle, where His Royal Highness Prince Joachim has been resident since 1995.

Schackenborg Slotskro is today owned by Schackenborg Slotskro A / S - a constellation between His Royal Highness Prince Joachim and the renowned shipbuilder Hans Michael Jebsen
