Skovsgaard Manor can trace its history back to the 13th century, then in the hands of it’s first known owner Peder Modeskal. The manor was in his family’s possession until 1760, when the new owners – the Mikkelsen family – took over. In 1979, the last in the family line, miss Ellen Fuglede, donated the manor to Denmark’ Nature Foundation.
Today the Foundation owns and run the estate as an organic farm, open to the public, with an all organic café and shop.
Langelands Museum has four exhibitions in addition to parts of the old manor house.
Here you can visit the landowner’s office, and take a peak into his wife’s bedroom and dressing room. You can also visit the downstairs’ quarters where the servants worked and lived in small rooms.
A visit to the Carriage Museum will give you an impression of rural life at the beginning of the 20th century. The museum has 25 work carts and carriages – among them a wedding carriage and a baker’s cart. The Forestry Museum’s exhibition of a forester’s tools through the ages offers a chance to learn more about the development of forestry in Denmark. There is also an exhibition of old tractors and farm machinery from a bygone era in agriculture, and a workshop where old machines are renovated.
Nature awareness for everyone
“Kys Frøen”: Kiss the frog – and get closer to nature.
The whole family can take part in the hands-on activities of exploring and learning that the Nature Workshop offers. Try GPS-hunting, explore the ponds, make plaster casts of animal tracks, or – why not get your picture taken trying on some of the many historic costumes.
A network of paths take you past the fields, through the forest to a bird watching tower from where bird life in Rebjerg Sø (Rebjerg Lake) can be studied without disturbing it. The bird watching tower is wheel chair accessible.
In between all the in- and outdoor activities a visit to the café is highly recommended. The all-organic menu offers many temptations, and in the adjoining shop, "Skovsgaard Madmarked", you can buy a wide variety of organic and biodynamic products, many of them locally produced.
