As the oldest castle in Scandinavia, Malmohus stands as a beautiful red brick fortress and adjoins the castle built in the 1530s. An important stronghold of Denmark, this castle-turned-prison tells the story of its captives. For five years the castle imprisoned Mary, Queen of Scots' third husband, James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell. Today the castle is home to a museum of ancient art, modern photography, taxidermy, and prison cells for touring. Limited signage is provided in English.

  • Nice and interesting!!!!!!!!!!!! There are lots of interesting things to look at. Missing explanations in English for some things  more »
  • Frankly, you might be lucky, as they have different expositions and showcases and other events here, but to visit just the building is absolutely boring.  more »
