Hindsgavl Castle privat is a historic destination located on the island of Funen. In 1814, during the Napoleonic Wars, King Frederik VI of Denmark surrendered sovereignty of Norway to Sweden at this very castle. In 2014, the castle celebrates the bicentennial of this historic event. The castle itself dates back to 1231. Hindsgavl Castle offers leafy views of the parkland and the meandering strait between Funen and Jutland. The castle restaurant, Den Hvide Dame (i.e. The White Lady, a reference to a bride who according to local legend haunts the estate gardens) serves fine gourmet cuisine made with estate produce from the vegetable and herb gardens. The castle takes great pride in its house-made dishes and garden-fresh produce. Salmon is smoked on the premise and meats are sources locally.
