Skrøbelev Gods (Skrøbelev Manor) is a traditional manor house dating back to 1669. It is located on the island of Langeland in the south of Denmark.[1]

History[edit]

Skrøbelevgård Manor was built in 1669. The name has been changed from "Skrøbelevgaard" to the current name in 2007. The manor house has recently been renovated and is now used as a venue for weddings and other celebrations. The estate features a large courtyard, surrounded by the main building, green meadows with its display of strutting peacocks, a cascading fountain, moat and the bridge which leads to the church. It has six horse stables and the area is a popular destination for eco-tourists and anglers due to Langeland being a thin strip of land.
