Dracula's Crypt

If you dare, visit Dracula's Crypt and find out more about the dark secrets of Egeshov!

Legend has it that, in the mid 1960s, a boy was born to the name Michael Ahlefeldt-Laurvig-Bille. Today he is the Count at Egeskov and lives in Egeshov itself.

In 1993 another Count made his presence felt at Egeskov: none other than Count Dracula himself.
To remove any shadow of a doubt, we decided that something had to be done and we were fortunate enough to come into the possession of the original medieval ground rules for driving out vampires.

Ground rules for driving out vampires

1. With a single blow, a stake must be driven through the vampire's heart.
2. Small stones or piles of incense must be placed at the extreme ends of the vampire's limbs.
3. Garlic must be stuffed into the vampire's mouth.
4. Millet must be sprinkled over the body.
5. The corpse must be placed face down when reburied.
6. Wild, thorny roses must be bound around the outside of the coffin.
7. As soon as we have succeeded in filling the post of head vampire exorcist, the above ground rules will be implemented point by point. Until then, for reasons of safety, we recommend that all guests at Egeskov carry a large garlic bulb or, better still, two.
