This superb Renaissance building, which looks so peaceful and idyllic now, was built for defence against attack.

Less than 30 minutes' drive from Odense is the fairy tale Egeskov Castle, the best preserved moat-castle in Europe.The current structure was built by Frands Brockenhuus and completed in 1554.Nestled in the center of Denmark's garden island, Funen, which is packed full of magnificent manor houses and palaces, Odense is named after the Norse God of war, wisdom, and poetry, Odin.This culture-rich town is also the birthplace of that most famous Dane and teller of fairy tales, Hans Christian Andersen.From Egeskov Castle, you can travel 15 kilometers to Svendborg and board a ferry to the picturesque island of Aero with its quaint cottages and cobbled lanes.

Over the centuries, the castle has changed hands many times and later became a model farm.The grounds opened to the public in 1959 and since then, much renovation has taken place.It's not surprising Andersen took to his craft as he did, for this is a magical land with no shortage of literary inspiration.The excellent Hans Christian Andersen Museum will take you into the world of his imagination.A Veteran Car Museum opened here in 1967, and other tourist attractions include a treetop walk and Segway tours.The Banqueting Hall is magnificent, and the setting of this beautiful castle is breathtaking.
