Overview – Castles and manors on Fyn

You see them everywhere – there are 123 castles and manors on Fyn. Once they were inhabited by earls and barons, and many still are. You are invited into their lordly chambers and beautiful parks. Some are run only for the purpose of farming and forestry and must be admired at a distance.
