Bidstrup - Story

Bidstrup Hovedgaard
Bidstrup Hovedgård (Bidstrup Manor) is a baroque manor house from 1760. The barn with gate is from 1590 and the white main building from 1698. At foot, there is a free admission to the courtyard, and there is parking outside the gate. Concerts, plays and banquets are arranged. Similarly, conducted tours for parties can be arranged by appointment. The Lilleå stream provides an opportunity for angling. Around the manor, the old moats and lime avenues may be seen. The area around Bidstrup is very beautiful, in particular a detour to Voer Mølle (Voer Mill) and Grandslev Ådal (Grandslev river valley) may be recommended. The main building was erected in 1698-1760. The manor is situated in Langå, ca. 8 km from the mouth of Gudenåen. The history of the manor goes back to the 13th century when Bishop Absalon's brother Styge Hvide built the first house on the premises. During the 16th and 17th centuries, the manor was owned by several noble families including Mathias de Poulson who married
Gertrud Hofman (1681-1712). In 1749, the manor was bought by Estatsråd Gerhardt Hansen de Lichtenberg and his family has now owned Bidstrup in nine generations.
