Attractions close to the marina
The town of Dukes
A short 500-metre walk takes you into the heart of Augustenborg. It is also referred to as “The town of Dukes” thanks to its mansions, palace church, palace garden and a town full of charming and well-preserved baroque houses. In 1651, the Duke Ernst Günther bought the village of Stavnsbøl and converted it to the estate of Augustenborg, named after his wife, the Duchess Augusta. The palace and palace garden are a must-see, and in the summer the park serves as the venue for large musical events.
Denmark’s biggest sculpture park
You can find Denmark’s biggest collection of outdoor sculptures at Augustiana, a park that combines art with stunning natural surroundings. Visitors are free to get up close and touch the sculptures, and if you feel like taking a swim, the park’s proximity by the fjord gives you the possibility to round off your walk with an invigorating swim.
The cove is surrounded by idyllic natural areas with plenty of opportunities to go birding and fishing. Visit the small bird sanctuary with an observation tower or get close to nature by taking a walk down one of the hiking trails. If you choose to go on the full hike around the cove (approximately 8 km), you will pass through the small villages of Egen, Ketting and Sebbelev, where you will find unique churches and fascinating, well-preserved historical ruins.
