“unique”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

This is an out of the way place...but worth the time to find. It is basically the remains of a very old cloister from hundreds of years ago. There are outside remains including skeletons under covers, a nice guided walk path and an interesting small museum. It is self guided and although it was rainy we enjoyed the site and its great history.

“Interesting ruins of the Cistercian Monastery”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This museum tells about the life of a Cistercian monastery for the period 1172-1560. Left today is a ruin as the monastery around 1560 have been demolished, as the bricks were used to build Skanderborghus.
The site contains the history of this monastery as well as some general information about other Cistercian monasteries in Denmark. There is a significant skeletal collection from the Middle Ages. Also, a herb garden for those who might find that interesting.
The place is mainly for adults (or history oriented children) and can be combined by a walk in the beautiful nature, as this is close to Mossø. On certain days (mainly during the summer) there is activities here is as well (check the web page http://www.skanderborgmuseum.dk/Forside-174.aspx).
Note: closed on Mondays as most museums in Denmark.
