A unique partnership

The rose garden is the result of a fruitful partnership between Dallund Castle, the North Funen Rose Festival and plant nursery Grønløkke Planteskole. Together they have created a beautiful rose garden that is both a tribute to North Funen's proud rose production and gives the public access to a unique assortment of roses.

75% of all Danish garden roses are produced in North Funen, and Grønløkke Planteskole is one of Scandinavia's largest rose producers. At the North Funen Rose Festival in the first weekend of August, Bogense is decorated with over 100,000 roses each year. Dallund Castle is a 500-year-old historic castle that today serves as a conference venue and hotel.
