Jægerspris Castle

At the castle museum visit the audience chamber, the king’s study, with its impressive pipe collection, the tower room and the courtiers’ chamber, which contains the king’s large collection of weapons, and also Countess Danner’s drawing room, with its beautiful furniture. The fashion and style conscious Countess Danner decorated the rooms at Jægerspris Castle according to the tastes of her time. Today the castle boasts Denmark’s only complete 1850’s interior.

King Frederik VII’s archaeological collection contains unique gold finds from the Bronze Age and is also open to the public.

In addition an exhibit describes the orphanage established at the castle by Countess Danner and the children’s living conditions from the 1920s to the 1940s. The story of the orphanage’s influence on child welfare in Denmark is also presented.
