Gråsten Palace Church

The palace church is the only building remaining from the original baroque palace after the 1757 fire. The church was built in 1699 and is built like the Jesuit Church in Antwerp.

In 2018 the antependium stitched in 1943 by Queen Ingrid was replaced with a new one. Queen Margrethe II has donated an impressive peace of handcraft to Gråsten Palace Church. The new antependium, a colourful masterpiece of more than 250 work hours, can be admired during the official opening hours of the palace church.

The palace church is open from the 1st April until  31st October; Mondays 11 am - 2 pm, Saturdays 10 am - noon and Sundays 2 - 4 pm.
However, the Garden and Church are closed, when the Royal Family is staying at Gråsten Palace.

In 2018 the grounds surrounding the castle will be closed on the evening of the 8 July and we expect that the area will remain closed until 11 August.

Guided tours for groups through the garden and the in the church can be booked at Sønderborg Tourist Office.
