Herrevadskloster is a historically rich place that Archbishop Eskil in 1144 founded a monastery belonging to the Cistercian order, the first in what was then Denmark. The monastery was active until 1565.
The monastery is located along road 13, once upon a time it was a strategic place when the national road that went from Lund up to Sweden attracted many travelers. It is after the Reformation in the 1530s that Herrevadskloster becomes really famous. The Danish court turns Herrevadskloster into an estate and various nobles own the farm. During the time of County Governor Steen Bille in the 1560s and 1580s, his nephew Tycho Brahe stayed here and it was here on November 11, 1572 that Tycho Brahe discovered a new star, Stella Nova. For his discovery, which makes him famous, he receives an offer from the Danish king Fredrik II to establish an observatory. For this purpose, the island of Ven was chosen, located in the Sound where the Uraniborg observatory was built. Today, it is Herrevad’s military history that gives the facility its character. As early as the 1690s, shortly after Skåne became Swedish, a colonel’s residence was established here and military operations continued into the 1980s. Today, Herrevadskloster is privately owned.
Knutstorp is located on the southern slope of Söderåsen about 4 kilometers east of Kågeröd. The castle is strongly associated with the astronomer Tycho Brahe, since he was born here in 1546. Knutstorp has been a manor house since the middle of the 14th century. The motorway “Ring Knutstorp” belongs to the property and is just over 2 km from the castle.
Kalle på Spången
Spången’s inn is one of the most Scanian you can find and a place with a lot of history, its own small museum, which is connected to Edvard Persson and “Kalle på Spången”. The film “Kalle på Spången” was shot in the summer before the Second World War, where the film team lived in the inn and filmed in the surroundings. A traditional place that puts Ljungbyhed on the map.
Tomarps kungsgård is located at Kvidinge about five km east of Åstorp. It is a four-length stone house on two floors around a cobbled courtyard. Outside the courtyard squares, remains of the moat can be seen in the form of elongated ponds. Today’s Tomarp with its unadorned facades and gables is not very reminiscent of the stately Renaissance castle, which was depicted by Gerhard Buhrman in the 1680s. Today, Tomarps kungsgård is a gallery with cafés and public events.
Trolleholm Castle has belonged to three families; Thott, Trolle and Bonde and is today not open to the public. The original castle was built in 1538 by Tage Ottosson Thott and Tycho Brahe’s sister, Sophia lived here. The curiosity is that “Stars at the castle” was recorded on Trolleholm in 2006 and 2007 and was shown on SVT.
