Egeskov Castle – Located in the south of Island Funen, Denmark. This is one of the best Europe’s Renaissance water castles. Egeskov’s history dates to the 14th century. The castle contains two long buildings linked by a thick double wall, permitting defenders to abandon one house and continue fighting from the other. The architecture comprises of unhappy and round-arched windows, round-arched blank arcading within the gables, and a double cord course between the high basement and the ground floor. Most of the castle is open to the public, excluding for the areas used by Count Michael and Countess Caroline Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille. The museum of cultivation and the horse wagon group is located in the building Ladegård.
