Our history

The history of Skjoldenæshlom goes way back.
In 1348 there was a fortress named "Skjoldenæs" - the remains are still to be found at the edge of the neareby lake.
In 1794 Skjoldenæsholm was bought by the noble family Bruun de Neergaard and remains within the family to this day.
The oldest part of todays' castle is the "Countess’ wing" along the lake, which dates back to the mid 16th century and is easily recognised by the half-timbering. Our guests are invited go back in time and sense the unique atmosphere of the antique surroundings whilst enjoying dinner.

Guest recommendations

  • The manor with several hundred year's of history has a unique atmosphere. It was a breathtaking experience to draw away the curtains and see two swans sliding over the lake in the morning haze.
