Glimmingehus , 27650 Hammenhög (show map)
Category: Ancient and classical architecture

The building was commisioned by the Danish nobleman Jens Holgersen Ulfstand, built as a fortress and dwelling. Archaeological finds suggest that Ulfstand lived a comfortable, wealthy life at Glimmingehus in the early 16th century. These finds include Venetian glass and Spanish ceramics. He would no doubt have appreciated the fact that the castle still lives on as an important medieval centre, as well as being an exciting tourist attraction.
