The romantic half-timbered house in the middle of the Castle Park was built in the 19th century and named Skjærsommer, which is written on the roof’s gable in brass letters.

Interactive exhibition

In the house a part of the private doll collection of more than 3,000 dolls is exhibited and toys that have belonged to the family Reedtz-Thott for generations.

The exhibition is interactive and gives a story about the house’s history.


The house was built as a playhouse for the little baroness Julie Reedtz-Thott, who lived at Gavnø Castle with her brothers and parents more than 200 years ago.
