An historic Danish manor house, Vedbygaard Gods, situated about 20 km north of Slagelse in west Zealand, is for sale.

The Gothic castle used to belong to Queen Margrethe I and Valdemar IV, but now can be yours for about 115 million kroner.

The current owner, Fonden Vedbygaard Rekonvalescenthjem, has decided to put the historic building, which includes 475 hectares of land, up for sale after years of struggling to maintain the property.

Dating back to 1160
The foundation has owned the estate since 1917 and used it as a convalescent nursing home, but in the past few years the place has been empty.

While the current three-wing building is from the 15th century, the history of the castle dates back to 1160.

The castle is surrounded by a large park with a moat, lakes, old trees and many rhododendron bushes.
