Visit the Hermitage

Join a guided tour at the Hermitage Palace and experience the magnificent royal hunting lodge in the middle of Dyrehaven

Dramatic hunts on sweaty horses and delightful banquets in the countryside. The Hermitage tells the exciting story of the royal hunts in Dyrehaven.

The royal hunting lodge was built far from the court in Copenhagen as a leisure palace where the king could host private hunting lunches. At The Hermitage you can easily imagine the sweaty horses and barking dogs of the time, as they chased the deer in the beautiful surrounding landscape. Join a guided tour and discover the history of the palace up until today and learn how the palace got its name.
