Castles and manor houses of Fyn

You do not have to drive far from the Fyn motorway before finding yourself in a genuine fairytale countryside. The road takes you through small villages, past rolling hills and green meadows, and just as you come around a corner, there it is – a spectacular building from a bygone time with sweeping wrought iron gates or grand driveways leading up to the buildings. It might be from the Middle Ages or the Renaissance or be completely Baroque – but it's always impressive.
