Take a walk in the past
Augustenborg Palace is one of Denmark´s most beautiful and historic castles.
Sit in the lovely park under Hans Christian Andersen´s favourite linden tree and enjoy the view over the water. It may have been here that he first thought of writing his fairytale "The Little Match Girl".
For more than 75 years, most of the palace has functioned as a psychiatric hospital. The psychiatric hospital has moved to Aabenraa and in the future the castle will be the new surroundings for Landbrugsstyrelsen.
In the Mini Museum by the bell tower, you can learn about the history of the ducal families who lived at the palace.
