Odense River Trip and Egeskov
A dual package deal, Odense River Trip and Egeskov Castle, makes it much easier and cheaper to visit both attractions in Jutland and on Fyn.
This new package deal makes it possible to combine a river trip (a delightful boat trip down the River Odense Å) and visit the fairy-tale castle of Egeskov without having to worry about transport. A coach will be waiting by the riverside in Odense to whisk you away to the old castle. When the day is done, the coach will be standing by once again at Egeskov to bring visitors back to Odense.
Two different package deals are available. Tickets must be purchased online before the start of the trip, or they can be purchased on the Odense River Cruise, space permitting:
