|Jaegerspris Castle was bought by danish King Frederik VII in 1874. Here the king lived with the love of his life, the Countess Danner. |
After his death the Countess Danner inherited the castle and bequeathed it to a fund for 'helpless and abandoned girls from common families'. Most of the castle was built in the 1700s. Some rooms in the castle can still be seen with Frederik VII and Countess Danner's furniture in them. The park belonging to Jægerspris Castle contains the countess's tomb and 54 statues of famous Danes.
