Dragsholm castle and eatery is located on the Northwestern Sealand, Denmark. I had heard nothing about this place before Whiteguide mentioned it.
I have very little knowledge and experience of Sealand outside Copenhagen so I was looking forward to our overnight stay in Dragsholm before continuing to Samsoe.
Dragsholm castle was finished first in 1215, today it is renovated inside out and has two restaurants, fine dining and a eatery (Brasserie).
We have booked a room with spa and 3 course dinner in the eatery for the reasonable price of 1245 dkk
per person (166€) incl. breakfast. This was the visit

Our recent visits @ Noma and Frederiksminde has set a very high level, Dragsholm comes in fine in this company and considering the price, this surely is a good visit. I look forward returning a day when the fine dining restaurant is open to see if they will deliver on all senses.
The room was beautiful, reception warm, service friendly and fast, this is a very good address and just 1 hour from Copenhagen, should you need a weekend away.
- When I was very young, we had a summerhouse in this area
- There a many lovely semi secret hideaways in Denmark
- New Nordic cuisine is moving west, here halfway to Jutland
