Dybäck Castle

Skivarp, Sweden

Dybäck estate was first mentioned in the 1300s. It was owned by several Danish noble families like Munck, Bille and Marsvin. In 1684 it was divided between Jorgen and Christian Bille. Their family owned the estate until 1857.

The oldest building is a barracks, built in the late 1400s. The main building was built in the 1500s and enlarged about hundred years later. Today Dybäck is privately owned and not open to the public.

A private castle with closed roads. We pass such places. There are more beautiful castles that want our attention. I want the owners to know that I think it's bad that you, like many other castles, can not be open around the castle. Most of us respect that it is private housing. Did not get a single photo of the castle because of this! Bad when you have traveled so many miles.

Château d'Olhain

The Château d'Olhain is probably the most famous castle of the Artois region. It is located in the middle of a lake which reflects its picturesque towers and curtain walls. It was also a major stronghold for the Artois in medieval times and testimony to the power of the Olhain family, first mentioned from the 12th century.

The existence of the castle was known early in the 13th century, but the present construction is largely the work of Jean de Nielles, who married Marie d’Olhain at the end of the 15th century.

The marriage of Alix Nielles to Jean de Berghes, Grand Veneur de France (master of hounds) to the King, meant the castle passed to this family, who kept it for more than 450 years. Once confiscated by Charles Quint, it suffered during the wars that ravaged the Artois. Besieged in 1641 by the French, it was partly demolished by the Spaniards in 1654, and finally blown-up and taken by the Dutch in 1710. Restored in 1830, it was abandoned after 1870, and sold by the last Prince of Berghes in 1900. There is also evidence that one of the castles occupants was related to Charles de Batz-Castelmore d'Artagnan, the person Alexandre Dumas based his Three Musketeers charictor d'Artagnan on.

During the World War I and World War II, the castle was requisitioned first by French troops, then Canadian and British soldiers. The current owner has restored the castle to its former glory.
