Dallund is first mentioned in 1340 and was in the possession of the Bryske family until 1614 and later, from 1792 to 1915, by the Blixen-Finecke family.

The east and north wings of the main building were originally built in about 1540. The staircase tower dates from an extension of the north wing in 1634 and the east wing was altered in about 1723. The two east facing lateral wings were designed by Niels Sigfred Nebelong and built in 1849.

The listed main building and the garden are owned by a self-owning institution under the municipalities on Funen. It houses the Dallund Rehabilitation Centre, a project under the Danish Cancer Foundation.

Dejligt sted at gå tur med hunden. Kan selvfølgelig også godt nyde en gåtur uden hund

Ærgerligt at det er blevet så privat

Der er ikke offentlig adgang til slottet, men der er en fantastisk dejlig gåtur rundt om Dallund Sø.

Et dejligt område til en god gåtur. Meget synd, at de nye ejere af Dallund Slot, har klistret området til med ADGANG FORBUDT - privat område. Det tager magien fra stedet og pludselig vader vi langs en trafikeret vej, i stedet for at kunne nyde Slottets park. Nye folk, nye skikke

Hidden gem. Nice walk around the lake. Very nice park area with beautiful tress near the castle. There is a bird-viewing tower and a place where you can barbeque.

Château des Ducs de Bretagne

The Château des ducs de Bretagne (Castle of the Dukes of Brittany) is a large castle located in Nantes. It served as the centre of the historical province of Brittany until its separation in 1941. It was the residence of the Dukes of Brittany between the 13th and 16th centuries, subsequently becoming the Breton residence of the French Monarchy. Today the castle houses the Nantes History Museum.

The restored edifice now includes the new Nantes History Museum, installed in 32 of the castle rooms. The museum presents more than 850 objects of collection with the aid of multimedia devices. The castle and the museum try to offer a modern vision of the heritage by presenting the past, the present and the future of the city. Night-time illuminations at the castle further reinforce the revival of the site. The 500-metre round walk on the fortified ramparts provides views not just of the castle buildings and courtyards but also of the town.
