Welcome to Ryegaard and Trudsholm Estates. Here you can spend the night at a height of six meters all alone in the forest - in exclusive surroundings in Tree top cabins at Ryegaard.
Ryegaard’s history dates back to before 1350. Ryegaard has for long periods dominated a very large area in the current Lejre Municipality. The estate has been owned by the Scheel family since 1824.
Ryegaard Deer Park (“Dyrehave”) is a favorite excursion destination, both for residents of Lejre Municipality and from the surrounding towns. It is especially the fenced part of the Deer Park, which provides some completely unique experiences of hilly landscape with views of the fjord.
In winter you can sled and ski down the rather steep hills. You can arrange an excursion by horse-drawn carriage. Sales of Christmas trees have, since 1991, taken place from the park, where it is possible to ride horse-drawn carriages to find this year’s Christmas tree.
The wooden huts in Ryegaard Deer park:
In the middle of the forest at a height of six meters in wooden huts from 2015, two people can experience the forest and the silence up close – and spend the night in exclusive surroundings. With glass in both the roof and walls, you get very close to the forest and nature in the protected Ryegaard Deer Park. There are opportunities for lovely walks, and in the forest you will find unusually old oak trees – up to 100 years old.
Breakfast / brunch included. You prepare it yourself – we make it all ready.
