Græsted, originally named Gresholdt, is first mentioned in the Esrum Abbey book in 1299. The railway had a significant impact on Græsted’s development, so it is only natural that North Sealand’s vintage train is based at Græsted Station. The vintage train runs all summer long and again around Christmas time and is a popular experience for train enthusiasts of all ages.
The Græsted Vintage Car Rally during Pentecost is an annual event that’s put Græsted firmly on the map. Here you’ll find mechanical fun and nostalgia for the whole family, with vintage cars, steam engines, American cars, tractor pulls and old-fashioned Danish craftsmanship.
Nearby, Esrum Abbey and Møllegård is an interesting family attraction with exhibitions, medicinal herb gardens, a nature playground and multiple activities. It was originally an impressive monastic complex with connections to all of Europe. Today, only a tenth of the buildings remain, but they are still fascinating.
