Selsø Castle Manor House Museum

Selsø Castle, which dates back to the Middle Ages, was first mentioned in the 13th century in 1288 as part of the Diocese of Roskilde. In 1829 when its last resident, Agathe von Qualen Plessen, died, the furniture auctioned off, the door locked and the castle forgotten for almost 150 years. Left to decay, many of the rooms and buildings were used for agricultural purposes. For example, grain was stored in the Knight’s Hall, the reception room became an apiary and chickens lived around the rear staircase, turning the magnificent castle into a large pigsty.

In 1972, journalists and authors Grethe and Bernhard Linder rented the old decaying castle and began gently restoring it, refraining from installing electricity, water and heat. The manor house, open to visitors, appears almost as it did in 1829.

A kid-friendly walk in #Fjordlandet! Selsø Møllekrog - a smaller but beautiful and not busy distance to walk with the kids (or others who aren’t up for a long trip 😊) #Møllekrogen lies between Skibby and Selsø, and is a small wild and beautiful spot, where there is a hiking route along the fjord, with a look to Roskilde. Tip: park either at Selsøvej 24 or by Selsø Church where you can walk at #trampestien to Møllekrogen - a walk of approx. 1.4km. 🙏🏻👍🏻👟🥾

Have a walk along #skjoldungestien in the great Bidstrup Forests which are part of Skovhøjlandet, Zealand's second largest forest area. The forests are varied with hills and open exaggerations. Here is the opportunity for lots of outdoor activities - together but keeping distance :) Thanks for Sharing @jacob_nyborg 👍🏻

Thousands of tufted ducks arrive at Roskilde Fjord every winter. They stay here until spring, when they fly back north to their breeding sites. During the daytime, the ducks will rest at the lake, Kattinge Sø! Go watch them around sunset. An hour after sunset, the ducks will fly in huge numbers towards Roskilde Fjord, where they go to eat molluscs, worms, aquatic insects and some plants. It is a quite amazing site, when they fly out for dinner – the phenomenon is called ‘black moon’ by the locals. Thanks to @nationalparkskjoldungernesland 👍🏻
