Sønderborg Castle Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

This castle overlooking the mouth of the fjord is believed to have been built by Valdemar the Great in the 12C and has since undergone many changes. It now houses a history museum including a section on the 1864 war against the Prussians, due to which the Danes lost South Jutland. The collections are spread over three floors. The Queen Dorothy's Renaissance Chapel (ground floor) contains a fine triptych and marble and alabaster baptismal fonts. The great ballroom on the second floor of the North Wing boasts a parapet and medieval machicolations.
