Dragsholm Slot Castle

This Castle is in Zealand Denmark.  It is currently being operated as a hotel, a restaurant and bar.  This Castle was originally constructed in 1215.  It has survived many wars including one where parts of the castle were blown up.  It was later re-built.   The bones in the wall are reported to be one of the previous occupants daughters that had fallen in love with one of the servants and he was so angry that he had her sealed in the wall while she was alive.  I could not find any actual documentation on that.  Our room was just on the other side of the woman.  

They say there are three ghosts that haunt this location with her being one and the other two being another female and then Lord Bothwell.  In the years of 1536 to 1664 the castle was used as a prison for noble and ecclesiastical prisoners.
