Gram Castle

Gram, Denmark

The east wing of Gram Castle was built in the beginning of the 16th century. The builder is unknown, but was probably one of the Reventlow family, who owned Gram from about the middle of the 15th century until 1560. The south wing was built by the Commander Hans Schack (1609 - 1676) a few years after he bought the manor in 1664. The west wing of the manor was built 1752 by Countess Anna Sophie Schack (1689 - 1760). Today it is a conference center.

Small castle where nearby you can rent a room without AC and sometimes with 1 toilet for 3 rooms.

We had the most lovely dining experience at Graham slot in June 2022. We enjoyed the accommodations very much. Our room was lovely with plenty of space and very cozy. The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful with gardens, trails, and a playground! We had dinner at the Gram Slot restaurant, and it was beyond amazing!! My young daughter, 2 teenagers, my husband, and myself all thoroughly enjoyed our three-course dinner. First course was delicious smoked salmon with caviar and vegetables: it was divine. Our second course was the most juicy tenderloin with root vegetables. Our third course was moist chocolate brownie with walnuts; but they accommodated our nut- allergic daughters with apple cobbler. The wine pairings were perfect. The chef and wait staff were splendid. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Church of St Donatus

The Church of St Donatus name refers to Donatus of Zadar, who began construction on this church in the 9th century and ended it on the northeastern part of the Roman forum. It is the largest Pre-Romanesque building in Croatia.

The beginning of the building of the church was placed to the second half of the 8th century, and it is supposed to have been completed in the 9th century. The Zadar bishop and diplomat Donat (8th and 9th centuries) is credited with the building of the church. He led the representations of the Dalmatian cities to Constantinople and Charles the Great, which is why this church bears slight resemblance to Charlemagne"s court chapels, especially the one in Aachen, and also to the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna. It belongs to the Pre-Romanesque architectural period.

The circular church, formerly domed, is 27 m high and is characterised by simplicity and technical primitivism.
