Selsø Castle

Local nameSelsø Slot
LocationNationalpark Skjoldungernes Land, Denmark

Selsø is a historic manor house located near Skibby, on the Hornsherred peninsula, Frederikssund Municipality, some 50 km west of Copenhagen, Denmark. The estate traces its history back to the 13th century. The current main building dates from 1576 but was renovated in the Baroque style in 1734. The estate has been owned by the Scheel-Plessen family since 1721 but the recently restored main building and its immediate surroundings have been ceded to a self-owning foundation. The building is now operated as a museum and is also used as a venue for concerts and other events. The knight's hall is decorated with paintings by Hendrick Krock. The main building, a gatehouse from 1734 and the east wing of the adjacent home farm were listed on the Danish registry of protected buildings and places in 1918.
