    The ruins testify to what was once the largest castle in Denmark. Around it is a beautifully landscaped park, which is rounded off by a small idyllic harbor. As an on-site convenience, there is both a public toilet and several benches with tables. Perfect for a snack.

    You can still see that this was an imposing facility. Interesting remarks on history and nice place to take a break.

    On the 3-hectare, beautiful castle hill in the heart of Vordingborg you can still see the remains of the 710 m. Long and 8 m high ring wall, which encircled the most important castle in Denmark in the 1400s, with the Gänzeturm from about 1365 as the am best preserved part.
    Several kings had their residence here. Here, the first Danish law book was confirmed and from here went many war campaigns against the Wends on the North German coast under the direction of Bishop Absalon. Here also the kingdom of Denmark was collected after splintering for many years under Valdemar the Great (1157-1182).

    There is not much left of the ruins but very interesting exhibitions on the history of Denmark.
