Geocache Description:


SCHACKENBORG SLOT
Kun 5 km vest for Tønder ligger den idylliske landsby Møgeltønder, som kan føre sin historie helt tilbage til oldtiden. Her finder man Nordeuropas smukkeste landsbygade, samt Møgeltønderhus bedre kendt som Schackenborg Slot.
I 1661 overdrog kongen "Møgeltønderhus" til feltherre Hans Schack for dennes "troskab og villig tjeneste" under krigen imod svenskerne. Hans drev store dele af de oprindelige bygninger og påbegyndte opførelsen af slottet "Schackenborg" , som igennem 11 generationer tilhørte Schack-slægten.
Slottet kom tilbage til Kronen i 1978 og blev i 1993 med tilhørende avlsgårde og jorde overtaget af Prins Joachim, der har gennemgået en dansk og international landbrugs faglig uddannelse.
18. Novenber 1995 indgik Prins Joachim og Pinsesse Alexandra ægteskab og bosatte sig på Schackenborg. Ægteskabet opløstes i 2004 og i dag bor Prins Joachim alene på slottet.

SCHACKENBORG CASTLE
Five kilometres west of Tønder lies the idyllic village of Møgeltønder which dates back to ancient times. Møgeltønder means Great Tønder. And ‘great’ was an accurate description of it when the nearby town of Tønder was founded. But the new town soon outgrew Møgeltønder. Its history, however, has been retained in the name. This little village can boast one of the most beautiful high-streets in Northern Europe built in the early 18th century and also Møgeltønderhus, now known as Schackenborg Castle.
Møgeltønderhus was the mansion for the Bishops of Ribe. It served as protection against the influx of Frisian culture in the south, and guarded the waterway via Vidå to Tønder. The building was transferred to the King after the Reformation, and in 1661 the King made over the Castle to General Hans Schack as a gesture of gratitude for his service in the war against the Swedes. For 11 generations the Castle belonged to the Schack family before reverting to the Royal Family in 1978.
In 1993 Schackenborg and its estate was transferred to HRH Prince Joachim, who has pursued agricultural studies and a career in Denmark and abroad.
Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra settled at Schackenborg in 1995, and for their wedding a national collection was made, known as the “Nation’s Gift”. The amount raised was almost DKK 13 million, and this is gradually being spent on an ongoing programme of restoration of the Castle.
The Castle and gardens are not open to the public. However, throughout the summer period there are guided tours of the garden in front of the Castle.
