Liselund ny Slot, Denmark Reviews
Oct 24, 2007
Liselund ny Slot, Borre, Denmark
Towering more than 400 feet over the Baltic Sea, the stunning white chalk cliffs of Denmark's remote Møns Klint are a surrealistic break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Factor in a couple of nights at Liselund ny Slot – only a half a mile inland – and you have the quintessence of your own fairy tale escape.
Ambience: The old-fashioned romance of the castle-converted-hotel is only further exaggerated by the intimate park of the same name that surrounds it.
The décor: The five unique sitting rooms on the ground floor have inviting names like Swan Lake and Oluffa's Salon and are adorned by the castle's original stucco walls and ceiling frescoes.
The rooms: The 17 chambers are of modest size yet cozy, and in true Danish style, the entrance to each is patterned after a story by the country's beloved author, Hans Christian Andersen. Honeymooning or wanting to splurge? Rent out the magnificent tower room, or even the whole castle if you wish – for 24 hours and a mere $2,100.
The cliffs: The site of the surrounding limestone precipices, stretching for miles along the island's coast, is a haven for geologists and jewelry lovers alike. Flint stones, belemnites and pieces of amber all frequently wash up on shore.
