Egholm Palace

Kirke Hyllinge, Denmark

The first written record of Egholm estate dates back to 1405, but the oldest building (today a magazine) dates from the 1200s. It was probably a keep built to the highest part. The current neo-classical main building was constructed in 1841 by Wolfgang von Haffner. Today Egholm is a museum.

The best WW2 museum in Denmark! A massive collection of artifacts from Denmark and beyond - all set up in detailed displays with some English explanations. It’s amazing that it was all amassed by a private collector and they have shared it with the public. Take note of the regular opening days and hours on their website.

Lots of things worth seeing. Free coffee with the ticket. Parking in front of the building.

A very nice museum to visit. I got a doc printed in English that explains or describes exhibits.

What a splendid experience. The museum is sort of out of the way, but absolutely worth the trip. The historical importance of this museums WWII exhibition is definitely something that should not be forgotten. We used a little over 2 hours and enjoyed the audio guide (in Danish) which we received without extra expense. There is complimentary coffee at the end of the tour. We will definitely visit the museum again.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
