The last “Goodbye photo” from Broholm Castle ... “A Meeting With The Past And The Future” 🔜🔘🔙 ... Monochrome Style (69)
(The last photo from the photo series from Broholm Castle, which I have been featuring over the last days ... The history of Broholm Castle is for certain known as far back as in 1326, when Absalon Johnsen of the Ulfeldt genus, was lord of Broholm. His descendants kept it until 1473. After several generations of Ulfeldt genus had inhabited the castle, including during the Count's Feud, also known as Denmark's last civil war (1533-36), but where Broholm, thanks to its wide moats, was spared ... it was then bought by Otte Skeel from the Skeel genus in 1641.
The Broholm Castle is one of the last late Gothic buildings, e.g. with its strong renaissance expressions from the turret and symmetrical window placement.
In 1730 came the Sehested genus to Broholm, through the marriage between Elizabeth Skeel and Niels Sehested ... and the Sehested genus is still living in the Broholm Castle ... the present owner, Anders Sehested, is the 13th generation on site, which is quite an achievement.
Broholm Castle is a privately operated estate and forestry, totaling 645 hectares, but the main building, some “side buildings” and the antiquities museum are now open to the public.
After a veritable “Beauty Sleep”, Broholm Castle was – in 2002 – finally radical restored and modernized (though still keeping the atmosphere of the nostalgic “Castle-ish lifestyle”), so they now e.g. offer great accommodation for business meetings, a nice weekend vacation etc.
Broholm Castle and its surroundings are extremely idyllic. The idea is to exclusively use natural materials and to follow nature's own declaration of shape and direction ... and with the park, lake, moats, watermill, old beautiful solitary trees, the historic memorial pillars, carp ponds, orangery ... and even a place they call “The Kissing Bench” - oh yes, they do indeed have everything that characterize a beautiful – and romantic – “castle garden” ... or castle in general.
Broholm Castle is located approximately 10 km. west of Svendborg, on the Danish island of Funen, which in Danish is called: Fyn)
