Maltesholms slott – Maltesholms castle

Another castle photographed! I’m pretty much limited by just having a small lens at the moment, but I enjoy photographing old castles. Maltesholm Castle was built in 1635 by Danish Malte Juul, who named the castle after himself. After Scania became Swedish, Malte Ramel, who was Scania’s largest landowner, owned the castle.

Malte’s son rebuilt the castle in 1780’s style of the time, and then the castle still looks out. Unfortunately, I could not enter the courtyard to photograph the castle from the front.

Ännu ett slott fotograferat! Jag är ju rätt mycket begränsad av att för tillfället bara ha ett litet objektiv, men jag tycker om att fotografera gamla slott. Maltesholms slott byggdes 1635 av danske Malte Juul, som namngav slottet efter sig själv. Efter att Skåne blev svenskt ägde Malte Ramel, som var Skånes största godsägare, slottet.

Maltes son byggde om slottet 1780 i den tidens stil, och så ser slottet fortfarande ut. Tyvärr kunde jag inte gå in i borggården för att fotografera slottet framifrån.

    Amazing to think that this castle has been standing since before my European ancestors settled here at the southern tip of Africa, and it is still looking so beautiful today!

      We have many old castles here around. The most of them are built by Danes since Scania was Danish until the peace in Roskilde in 1658. At that time, we had many wars against the Danes and the city I live in, Kristianstad, the Danes managed to take back and hold for two years. Kristianstad was built for all wetlands around which made the city very difficult to occupy. Nowadays, the wetlands cause floods because large areas have been dried.
