Winding Paths, vast lawns, woods, lakes and flower beds blending uniquely with the South Jutland landscape - that is Gråsten Palace Gardens in a nutshell.
The profusion of flowers is also magnificent. Queen Ingrid loved flowers and left a profound mark in the gardens, making them a vivid example of contemporary Royal landscape gardening.
Queen Margrethe carries on her parents longstanding tradition of using Gråsten Palace as a summer residence. Today the queen has her say in the Gardens colour scheme and selection of plants.
The official opening hours of the garden;
November to February 7.30-16.30
May to September 7.30-20
Guided tours for groups through the garden and the in the church can be booked at Sønderborg Tourist Office.
