The history of Djursland is closely connected to the many castles and manors found here. Gammel Estrup - the Manor Museum is in a beautiful location in the north of Djursland at Auning, and the manor is one of the most well-preserved renaissance manors in Denmark. The history of Gammel Estrup dates back to the 1300s, and for 600 years, the place was owned by the Scheel family. They were one of the richest and most influential families in Denmark in the 1600s and 1700s, and it is said that the reigning Scheel could ride all the way from Grenaa to Viborg on his own land.
Today, the old manor has been turned into a museum and is a unique example of the Danish manors and the life led by masters as well as servants for centuries. The museum exhibits interiors with many beautiful pieces of furniture, Gobelin tapestries, paintings and other objects, and great emphasis has been put on decorating the various rooms, corridors and halls as authentically as possible.
