The founding of Palsgaard Castle Park can be ascribed to the Danish diplomat, Holger Christian Reedtz, who owned the manor from 1835 – 1857.
Holger Reedtz brought home many rare species of trees and plants, which can still be seen in the park.
When Palsgaard in 1898 was sold to the Norwegian diplomat, Baron Wedel Jarlsberg (who had an decisive role in appointing the Danish Prince Carl as King of Norway), he hired the English garden architect Milner, who together with the Baron restructured the whole park with a new and beautiful access road to the castle buildings, whivh were also modernized and beautified.
The park is open to the public from 08.00 am until sunset and is with its 21 acres one of the largest manor parks in the country
