The Hermitage

Take a walk in the past

Royal history and a beautiful view in the middle of The Deer Park. 
On a top of a hill in the Deer Park, you will find the Kings’ Hunting Lodge with views of the Øresund and the UNESCO-listed landscape.

The castle famed for its table
Kings loved hosting hunting dinners at The Hermitage Hunting Lodge. With a single signal, a fully set table rose from beneath the floor with wine, meat and delicatessen plates. This built-in lift table meant that the kings and guests could enjoy a dinner in solitude, and talk confidentially without prying eyes and ears. Sadly, this kooky table was discarded in 1759, but the rest of the castle stands as it did in the 1730s, when Christian VI hunted here.

A UNESCO-listed landscape
There was no expense spared when Christian VI decorated The Hermitage Hunting Lodge. He ordered gold, silver, silk wallpaper and marble and created a truly lavish experience. A visit today allows you to walk in the footstep of kings. The hunting landscape in the Deer Park surrounding the Hermitage Lodge was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List in 2015.

Guided tours
The Hermitage Lodge is open to visitors from 1 June to 31 August. Due to the delicate interiors, it is only possible to visit the royal hunting lodge on a guided tour. The tour in English takes place every Saturday at 15:00 (3 pm). You'll need to purchase your ticket in advance from here.
