- Queen Ingrid’s summer residence
Throughout her life in Denmark the Swedish-born Queen Ingrid (late mother of the present Queen) enjoyed gathering her family around her at Gråsten Palace. In 1935 she married Prince Frederik, later King Frederik IX, and they were given the palace as a summer residence.
Today the palace is at the disposal of Queen Margrethe II. There have been several palaces at the site; the present palace is from 1759.
Gråsten Palace Chapel
Gråsten Palace Chapel in the north wing is all that is left of Count Frederik Ahlefeldt’s large Baroque palace from the seventeenth century. The chapel interior is richly decorated with a grand altarpiece and about 80 paintings. There are public services as well as cultural events in the chapel. The Palace Chapel is open to the public.
Gråsten Palace Garden
Gråsten Palace Gardens is an English-inspired landscape garden that sits beautifully and naturally in the South Jutland landscape. In the summer season great beds of roses and perennials are radiant with a wealth of colours.
