Built 16th century

Knutstorp Castle (Swedish: Knutstorps slott, Danish: Knudstrup) is a castle in Svalöv Municipality, Scania, in southern Sweden. It was built in the 16th century by Otte Brahe, when Scania was still Danish. It is the birthplace of the famous astronomer Tycho Brahe (born 14 December 1546) and his astronomer sister Sophia Brahe (born 24 August 1556).
