Ledreborg Palace hosts large public events such the Lifestyle Exhibition and Danish Broadcasting Corporation’s open-air palace concerts. Guided tours are available of its beautiful chambers and palace chapel, which contain a unique collection of original furniture and paintings. You also get to explore the old kitchen in the basement and the dungeon. Wrought iron railings and statues representing the virtues and vices grace the courtyard, just as there are lampposts with inscriptions about the Nordic gods, carved in Norwegian marble with brass figures on the glass domes.
Built in 1740-1745 by Count Johan Ludvig Holstein-Ledreborg, the palace has been in the hands of the Holstein-Ledreborg family for more than 250 years and is home to the family’s eighth generation.
