Dallund is first mentioned in 1340 and was in the possession of the Bryske family until 1614 and later, from 1792 to 1915, by the Blixen-Finecke family.

The east and north wings of the main building were originally built in about 1540. The staircase tower dates from an extension of the north wing in 1634 and the east wing was altered in about 1723. The two east facing lateral wings were designed by Niels Sigfred Nebelong and built in 1849.

The listed main building and the garden are owned by a self-owning institution under the municipalities on Funen. It houses the Dallund Rehabilitation Centre, a project under the Danish Cancer Foundation.

There are restrictions where we have to be and the walk around the lake was a bit sad and could well use a firm hand on the property.

Dejligt sted at gå tur med hunden. Kan selvfølgelig også godt nyde en gåtur uden hund

Gruyères Castle

The Castle of Gruyères is one of the most famous in Switzerland. It was built between 1270 and 1282, following the typical square plan of the fortifications in Savoy. It was the property of the Counts of Gruyères until the bankruptcy of the Count Michel in 1554. His creditors the cantons of Fribourg and Bern shared his earldom. From 1555 to 1798 the castle became residence to the bailiffs and then to the prefects sent by Fribourg.

In 1849 the castle was sold to the Bovy and Balland families, who used the castle as their summer residency and restored it. The castle was then bought back by the canton of Fribourg in 1938, made into a museum and opened to the public. Since 1993, a foundation ensures the conservation as well as the highlighting of the building and the art collection.

The castle is the home of three capes of the Order of the Golden Fleece. They were part of the war booty captured by the Swiss Confederates (which included troops from Gruyères) at the Battle of Morat against Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy in 1476. As Charles the Bold was celebrating the anniversary of his father's death, one of the capes is a black velvet sacerdotal vestment with Philip the Good's emblem sewn into it.

A collection of landscapes by 19th century artists Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Barthélemy Menn and others are on display in the castle.
