Perfect for defence and theatre
Borreby Manor is near Skælskør on West Zealand. King Christian III gave the property to Chancellor Johan Friis in 1553. He built a powerful renaissance building on the double embankment in 1556. The architecture is an impressive example of a fortified manor castle…
Theatre at Borreby
The Manor House of the Future" campaign was initiated by Realdania in 2008. Together with the owners of the manor houses, the campaign devises ways in which the manor houses can once again drive rural developments. Borreby's owner, Joachim Castenschiold, wishes to preserve the renaissance complex in particular. This will be achieved by converting some of the listed buildings of the home farm into a theatre. The idea is to make Borreby into a cultural dynamo for the area and Denmark's only permanent "manor castle theatre". Borreby is therefore cooperating with the campaign on a project to transform part of the former riding arena into a summer theatre. A café will be established in the old coach house, and the granary will be furnished for associated functions. The main coach house will become a year-round stage. More stages will be built in the park, including a music pavilion and an amphitheatre. "
