Gyldenholm Manor is a manor house located 10 km south-east of Slagelse, Denmark. The history of the estate dates back to 1774 but the current main building was constructed in 1864 to a Historicist design by Johan Daniel Herholdt.

History[edit]

In 1774, Antvorskov Ryttergods was sold on auction. Anders Dinesen acquired two parcels, Gimlinge and Lystager, and constructed a new manor house which was named Gyldenholm.[1] In 1800, the estate was sold by Anders Dinesen's son and over the following decades it changed hands several times.

In 1862 Gyldenholm was acquired by Charles Adolph Denis de Neergaard, who already owned Castrup and Charlottedal Manors in the area. The property has stayed in the de Neergaard family ever since.

Architecture[edit]

Second floor interior

The current building was built in 1864 to a Historicist design by Johan Daniel Herholdt. It consists of two storys over a celler and is built in red brick with decorative details in yellow brick. There is a crenellated tower on the main facade. The interior is decorated by Georg Hilker and Constantin Hansen. The property was listed by the Danish Heritage Agency in 1978.[2]

Gyldenholm Manor today[edit]

Gyldenholm covers 1,231 hectares of which approximately 500 hectares consist of agricultural land and 700 hectares of forest. Apart from agriculture and forestry, the estate derives its revenue from house rental and hunting rights. The main building is rented out for minor conferences, parties and other events.
