Staarup Manor

Staarup Hovedgaard is the only privately owned manor house of this region which is open to the public. The historically preserved main building was built in 1554 and constructed over medieval cellars from the 1300s. The old manor house is situated on large castle mounds surrounded by a water filled moat.

The main building is arranged as a private manor house home with unique interiors which make the manor house history come alive throughout more than 600 years. In the vaulted cellars, you will be back in the Middle Ages, in the large banquet hall you will experience the Renaissance, and in the many other rooms of the house you will encounter the Baroque and the French Empire lifestyles.

The main building and the port house form the fascinating framework for this region?s large sales exhibition of antiquities, ancient art, and classical household goods. Collections in the main building comprise furniture, paintings, chandeliers, genuine oriental carpets, old clocks, and small antiquities from the 16th to the 19th centuries. The port house offers a wide range of classical household goods, peasant furniture, textiles and thousands of small things.

All children from 7-13 are invited to participate in an exciting ghost hunt where they are to find the white lady of the manor house. There is a lottery for money and book prizes several times throughout the year.

Self-service cafè in the medieval cellar. Staarup Hovedgaard?s sells own import of delicious Italian wines. Major arrangements with coffee and pastries, lunch buffet or dinner can be or-
ganised for groups according to prior agreement.
