The Great Hall, which was built in Baroque style, has through its almost 300 years been used as much more than just a Great Hall. During the 2nd World War the hall was lent to the Jutland Dragoon Regiment, after which the German army moved in.
In the postwar period the Great Hall housed the Danish Lotte Corps, and in the last twenty years the hall has frequently been rented out for special business events in relations to the Hotel Svendborg.
In order to preserve the architectural and cultural history the Great Hall has been renovated. The hall’s stucco ceilings, Baroque walls, wing doors and Baroque pine plank floors, ornamented with oak, have all been restored.
