Nørre Vosborg

When you arrive in Nørre Vosborg, the first thing you see is the beautiful gate tower from 1790, which has now become Nørre Vosborg's landmark. On the other side of the gate tower, Nørre Vosborg spreads out. On your left you see the old southern barn facility, which is now furnished with a multi-purpose room with room for 400 people, conference rooms and a kitchen. On your right side is the northern barn facility, which was previously a stud stable and horse stable. Now it's hotel reception, party rooms, and hotel rooms.

At the end of a cobbled road and surrounded by Denmark's longest moat, is the castle itself. Since the 1570s, Nørre Vosborg has been where it is today. If you dive into history, you can read that the first time Nørre Vosborg is mentioned is in 1299. Its original location was at the mouth of the "Storeåen" in Nissum Fjord, but the buildings were destroyed by a storm surge. What is so special about the main courtyard itself is that the buildings date from the four centuries from the 16th century to the 19th century, each with their own different style.
