Augustenborg Palace

Augustenborg Palace is one of Denmark´s most beautifull and historic castles.

Sit in the lovely park under Hans Chistian 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 small Psychiatric Museum in the old porter´s lodge illustates progress in the treatment of psychiatric patients.

In the Mini Museum by the bell tower, you can learn about the history of the ducal families who lived at the palace.
