Publisher's description: Denmark's many manors are a treasure trove of natural and cultural riches. In addition to the scenic beauty and magnificent architecture they offer, they also stand as monuments to more than five centuries of Danish history. This beautiful book provides readers with the key to experiencing and understanding this cultural heritage. More than a hundred of Denmark's manors are now open to the public, and this book will be your guide to all of them. The landscapes and buildings of Denmark's manors animate the country's cultural heritage, and their many forms -- from the distinctive red roof of Holckenhavn Castle to the stately white facade of Kokkedal Castle -- are a testament to Denmark's architectural diversity. The unique atmosphere of the Danish country house has fascinated famous figures from Hans Christian Andersen to Isak Dinesen, and it can be seen as a lasting inspiration in their fairytales and stories. With nearly two hundred color photographs -- many by acclaimed photographer Roberto Fortuna -- and a preface by H.R.H. Henrik Prince Consort of Denmark, this book will be the essential compendium of the many country manors that Denmark boasts.
