Real villages have hospitals
Viby was owned by the neighbouring manors of Broløkke and Hverringe. The farms are now all part of the Hverringe estate, which also encompasses Viby. Buried in the idyllic village church, which features a half-timbered tower, are the owners of Broløkke. Hverringe Manor has since added a burial chapel with a domed copper roof. Just across from the church lies the village hospital, built by Broløkke Manor around 1780. The hospital was home for the old, the sick and the poor who had served the estate. The hospital had four small single-room flats. The area around Hverringe and Broløkke, which stretches to Kerteminde Bay, is considered some of the most beautiful countryside in Denmark and is today a nature preserve. Also a part of the manor and the parish is the island of Romsø, which is left untouched as a natural forest.
