The heritage castle from the 1800s originally dates back to 1746 where it was erected on an estate belonging to the royal country residence of Hirschholm Castle, which was demolished in 1810 following the illustrious and scandalous ‘Royal Affair’ between a Danish queen and the king’s physician (featured in the award-winning 2012 movie The Royal Affair directed by Nikolaj Arcel). Indeed, the heir to the founder of Kokkedal Castle, who was a courtier to the queen, was exiled following the affair.
Today, Kokkedal Castle Copenhagen is an exclusive manor hotel just 30 minutes from central Copenhagen offering sea views and a luxurious spa. Just a tee shot from the castle you also find the parkland golf course of Kokkedal Golf Club. The castle restaurant, Restaurant Slotskælderen, is situated in the 250-year-old vaulted cellar and serves French inspired cuisine. Every Sunday, afternoon tea is served in the Garden Salon where you can enjoy views to the gardens and listen to the accompanying harp music.
Kokkedal Castle Copenhagen is located within easy reach of several major royal attractions in Denmark, including Frederikborg Castle, Fredensborg Palace and Kronborg Castle.
