Clausholm Castle - Castle weddings, function rooms, parkland, castle tour
Standing majestically in Jutland's beautiful countryside, just south of Randers and only a half hour drive from Aarhus is Clausholm Castle & Park - one of the most beautiful and complete baroque buildings anywhere in Denmark. The castle grounds are open to visitors throughout the summer, and the castle is open in July and the first week in August.
Fairy tales and history go hand in hand with modern society at Clausholm. Clausholm is still operated actively as a manor house and farm, and the family still has its private quarters at the castle. Every May there is a Lifestyle Fair in the park at Clausholm Castle, organized by CHPevent.
Clausholm Castle was built in the 1690s by the Chancellor, Count Conrad Reventlow, and with its 14 stucco ceilings, painted panelling and fine interiors, it soon became renowned as one of the most beautiful baroque palaces in Denmark. And it still is.
Clausholm has now been fully restored into a baroque castle and furnished with original furniture from the 1700s. The castle is surrounded by a lush baroque garden with avenues and cascading fountains.
The decoration at Clausholm was the responsibility of a number of famed and highly skilled contemporary artists from all over Europe - among them the Italian artist Carlo Tagliati, who completed the beautifully ornate ceiling in the Garden Room in 1697.
A visit to Clausholm allows you to experience the baroque period at its height. The castle boasts northern Europe's largest number of stucco ceilings, and received the Europa Nostra Award for the restoration of the palace and gardens in 1993.
Clausholm Castle rents out function rooms, that are housed in the original stud main building from 1860. Facilities include banqueting hall for up to 100 diners, a reception room for 80 standing and some seated guests, a terrace overlooking the castle grounds, a bridal suite with four-poster bed, rest rooms and kitchen facilities. It is also possible to book a castle wedding with the ceremony in Clausholm Castle's romantic chapel.
The function rooms are authentically decorated and true to the building's age, but are still comfortable, with good acoustics. The immense banqueting hall astounds visitors with its impressive mix of beautiful old brick walls and a high ceiling. Guests make their entrance in regal fashion, looking down from the open staircase that leads half a level down to the banquet hall. Beautiful old parquet floors are preserved and renovated in the function rooms, stunningly lit by the large, white cross-barred windows.
Clausholm Castle's Function rooms are available on flexible terms, where you can choose anything from renting the premises to the total programme of chef, waiters, music, table settings, floral arrangements and clearing up.
