The castle is considered one of the most important Renaissance castles in the Nordic countries. The water castle is located in the town of Glücksburg on a dammed-up dam, which was built on a 2.5-metre-high granite plinth. The connection to land was over a bridge. Before the Second Schleswig War in 1864, the castle was a Danish royal residence where Frederik VII spent part of his time and he died here in 1863, the year before the war.
