Kongstedlund

The beautiful country mansion, Konstedlund - or as it was previously called, Kongslevlund - is located at the edge of Lille Vildmose, south east of Kongerslev.

Legends has it that there used to be a pirate's castle here which belonged to Store Mogens (Big Mogens), and that the name is connected to this pirate chief. He is buried in Store Monshøj, a barrow south of Kongerslev.

The original Kongstedlund house, however, wasn't built until 1592 by Niels Juul, and he was the one who changed the name from Kongslevlund to Kongstedlund. Eight years later, he was killed at a Whitsun market in the town of Aalborg, where he got onto a fight with another nobleman - Albret Skeel from Jungetgård near Salling.

The beautiful sandstone portal which adorns the entrance of the main building was erected by the subsequent owner Iver Krabbe in 1640.

No public admittance - you can, however, see the mansion from the main road.
