We went there on a beautiful spring day, cool but sunny. It takes about an hour to get to the little city of Soro from Copenhagen center, either by car or by train. I cannot recommend the trip highly enough. One hour is enough to make you feel that you have left the 21st century with all its hectic and... More

After visiting the beautiful church in Sorø, it's a good idea to take a stroll in the garden nearby. It's a big park, in english style, with many old trees, the Rhododendrons are huge. The garden presents also a fine collection of Agapanthus and Fuchsia and then, the glittering lake with all the birds. Don't miss it !

Although you may not need many breaks driving to Copenhagen, Sorø is a small gem worth visiting. The garden of the Academy is beatiful and well designed. The Church one of Denmark's most historical, and you can walk around the lake in less than 90 minutes.

In the 17th century, when the monastery had been turned into a knights academy, it was transformed into a park in french baroque, but has during the centuries undergone great changes. Today it is a park in english landscape style,... More

This garden surrounding Sorø Akademi is definitely worthwhile visiting. Enjoy the garden design and bring your picnic basket to watch the lake and the sunset, while enjoying all the nature's beauty.

Beautiful garden and remember to visit the church to. The new artmuseum is also worth a visit. Sorø is a very nice town, with a beautiful lake and a very famous icecream shop, Emil' Chokolade

The Academy is in a beautiful parklike setting on the shore of Lake Soroe with huge old trees, weeping birches, rhododendrons, and a marvelous garden of fuchsias. It's a short walk to the town square of Soroe. This is... More
