Royal history and a beautiful view in the middle of The Deer Park.

On a top of a hill in The Deer Park, you will find the Kings’ Hunting Lodge overlooking Øresund, treetops and a far-reaching hunting landscape.

The historical hunting dinners at The Hermitage Hunting Lodge was unique for kings who could excite friends' palates without the disturbing presence of servants.
With a single signal, a fully set table elevated from beneath the floor with wine, meat and delicatessen. The castle had a built-in lift table.
In this way, the kings and guests could enjoy a dinner in solitude - and talk confidentially without prying eyes and ears.
The elevator table is now gone. It was discarded in 1759, but the rest of the castle stands as it did in the 1730s, when Christian VI lodged at the hunting lodge.
