Experience history in Odsherred
Odsherred was created about 15000 years ago during the latest glacial period, where the varied and dramatic landscape was gradually shaped by the movements of the ice. Odsherred comprises one of the most interesting geographic landscapes form the glacial period - the Odsherredsbuerne, which shows a big number of barrows from the bronze age. Make the holiday home your base to go out for a trip to some of the unique historic places in Odsherred. We present you here to five historic places that we recommend. 

Geopark Odsherred
Geopark Odsherred is characterized by the decisive importance of the landscape of the glacial period on food production, art, and the history of civilization. Geopark Odsherred entered the worldwide Global Geoparks Networks under UNESCO in 2014 and is the first Danish Geopark ever.  The beautiful landscape of the glacial period is perfect for treks on marked routes. 

Solvognen
The Sun Chariot of Trundholm is one of the best known national treasures of Denmark - a unique bronze age finding of bronze and gold. It was found in 1902 during  plowing at Trundholm Moor south of Højby and it is an offering dating back to the late bronze age about 1300 BC.  You can see a beautiful copy of the Sun Chariot of Trundholm at the Museum of Odsherred in Nykøbing Sjælland. You could also take a longer trip and see the original Sun Chariot of Trundholm, exhibited at the National Museum in Copenhagen.
  
Ulvsborg
Ulvsborg Historiske Værksted is the only experience workshop in the country that tries to reconstruct and animate Denmark in the period from 1050 to 1250 AC. Go back in time to the year of 1150 and follow in Saxochar(39)s footsteps. Meet the lord of the castle, the craftsman, the monk or the bondsman and learn about everyday life in the countryside and the various social groups at the time. In the summertime you can even become "a bondsman for a day". At the Knigtschar(39) Festival you can see e.g. knight tournaments, fights, middle age market and music - an exciting journey back to the middle ages for the entire family.
 
Næsholm Borgruin
Næsholm Borgruin and Nygård Sø are situated between Højby and Nykøbing Sjælland. The building of the castle and the original pile bridge has been set to about the year 1278 by the National Museum. The army of Valdemar Atterdag is presumed to have conquered and burnt down the castle in 1340. The new pile bridge - the gate to the Middle Ages - is an almost perfect reconstruction of the initial bridge. The approximately 80 meter long bridge was open to the public in 2013 and is a milestone of a magnificent project of cultural heritage that also includes the restoration of Nygaard Sø, which almost encircles Næsholm. 

Dragsholm Slot
Dragsholm Castle is one of the oldest buildings in Denmark. The castle is in fact a fortress that served as fortification. It was probably built by the Bishop of Roskilde early 13th century and converted into a solid defence castle in the 15th century. Today the castle is a modern hotel with award-winning restaurants, where the menu is based on raw materials from the dammed up Lammefjord. Dragsholm Castle has achieved a unique reputation as one of the best restaurants in Denmark and is definitely worth a visit - from a historical as well as from a gastronomic point of view.
