Sophiendal Manor was built during the 19th century in the Renaissance style and the spectacular setting amongst vast forests, lakes and rivers creates a tranquil atmosphere.
The oldest church in the country, built in 1058, is situated behind the manor.
Located in the highlands between Ejer Bavnehøj and Himmelbjerget Sophiendal Manor is one of Denmark's most beautiful estates. Close to Skandeborg and just a 30 minute drive from Jutland's capital city, Aarhus, Sophiendal is a base for guests that want to visit Moesgaard Viking Museum, Legoland and Randers Rainforest, the latter is Northern Europe's largest artificial rainforest.
Sophiendal Manor has elegantly decorated guest rooms, which includes canopy beds and period detailing. The old farm buildings have been converted into conference rooms with modern facilities.
The spectacular gardens include many rare trees, such as a lime tree with a 3.5 m circumference. Take some time to wander through the gardens and listen to wild deer bellowing and the eagles screaming.
Each Saturday a wine tasting is held in Sophiendal's wine cellar. The restaurant at Sophiendal Manor is located in the eastern wing and has access to a large relaxing terrace.
