Lagunestien - Holsteinborg

Ca. 2 km fra Bisserup ligger godset Holsteinborg, bygget i 1500-tallet af slægten Trolle. Dengang hed gården Troldholm, men i 1707, da slægten Holstein købte den, blev den omdøbt til Holsteinsborg. Godset ejes nu af 9. generation: Grev Ulrich Holstein.
Slotskapellet tjener som sognekirke, og der er adgang gennem den befæstede portbygning fra 1651. Avlsbygningerne, der omgiver pladsen, fremtræder i restaureret stand efter en brand i 1980.

I den delvise tilgængelige park på 10 ha. Finder vi ved indgangen et monument over grev Frederik Adolph Holstein og hustru. Han var en initiativrig herre og oprettede i året 1810 den første sparekasse i Norden: Holsteinsborg Sparekasse. Han stiftede også landets første sygekasse i året 1811. Endvidere tog han initiativ til etablering af en række småindustrier i Bisserup.

Han beskæftigede sig dog ikke kun med det timelige. Også det åndelige lå ham stærkt på sinde, og han deltog således aktivt i datidens folkelige, religiøse vækkelse, som fik et så stærkt tag i befolkningen, at Bisserup-området blev kaldt "Det Hellige Land". En gren af vækkelsesbevægelsen udviklede sig senere til "Kirkelig Forening for Indre Mission".

Digteren H.C. Andersen besøgte ofte slottet. Den smukke park og omegnen har inspireret ham til flere af hans eventyr.

Parken er åben fra solopgang til solnedgang. Kirken er åben i kirketiden.

Vandreruterne "Lagunestien" og "Sjællandsleden" passerer lige forbi slottet og parken.

Lagunestien - Holsteinborg

The Castle of Holsteinborg, built in the 16th century by the family of Trolle, is located about 2 km from Bisserup. The castle was called Troldholm until 1707 when it was bought by the family Holstein.

The estate is presently owned by the 9th generation: Count Ulrich Holstein. The farm buildings surrounding the courtyard have been restored after a fire in 1980. The 10 hectare park is partially open to the public. A monument to Count Frederik Adolph Holstein and the countess can be viewed at the entrance to the park.

The count was an enterprising gentleman. He established Holsteinborg Savings Bank in 1810 which was the first of its kind in Europe. He proceeded by also establishing the first sick-benefit association in Denmark in 1811. Furthermore, he took the initiative in founding several small industries in Bisserup.

Apart from being a businessman, the count was strongly involved in the religious revival which played very firm hold of the population, which was the reason the Bisserup area was also nicknamed "The Holy Land".

The poet Hans Christian Andersen often visited the castle. The beautiful park and the surrounding countryside inspired him in the writing of many of his fairy tales.

The park is daily open from sunrise until sunset.
The chapel is open during church hours.

The hiking trails "Lagunestien" and "Sjællandsleden" passes right by this beautiful castle.
