Odsherred Museum

Guided tour of the medieval castle Borren. Ticket purchase is required before the event.

The medieval castle Borren, now a ruin, is located on a peninsula in Højby Lake. Take a guided tour of the site and hear the history of this fortification. Borren was built in the 12th century as a fortified structure with a lake on three sides.

Towards the land, a 200-meter-long barrier wall and a defense tower made of fieldstone were constructed. The builder is unknown; a qualified guess is that it was a king, bishop, or nobleman from the Hvid family in the 12th century, during a time when Denmark was plagued by civil wars. Borren was excavated in 1911.

Please note that the tour is unsuitable for those with walking difficulties.
