Visit our neighbour Dragsholm Castle
On the other side of the road, in front of woods and fields, lies Dragsholm Castle. Here’s the White Lady is haunting, according to the local tales! The Earl of Bothwell has been buried here for many years following his death in prison in 1578. The castle testifies to the history and cultural heritage that the area has made.
The castle’s museum is located on the second floor next to the castle theater and can be visited in conjunction with regular tours or a stay at the castle. The museum draws on the history of Dragsholm Castle and the castle’s references to the surrounding Odsherred and Lammefjord, which also forms the basis for the work of the castle’s applauded kitchens, known for their use of natural/organic ingredients.
The castle’s restaurant is Michelin-rewarded and a Bistro has recently opened.
Also enjoy a stroll in the park with the beautiful gardens and ancient trees and the view beyond the Sejero Bay.
Plants and herbs from nature are used diligently in the cooking in Odsherred.

Experiencing the cliffs at Klint is a must. The view and the beach are spectacular, with regular art installations within the landscape. There is also the “Vilde Køkken”, which is a unique place to enjoy brunch. The restaurant offers wild edible plant education at Sanddobberne, because many meals are based on the plants and herbs from here.
