About Wedellsborg

The County of Wedellsborg is founded in 1672 – but the first brickwork of the manor house originates from the year 1500.

About Wedellsborg

The Wedellsborg manor house is located in Ejby on the west side of the Danish island, Funen.

The manor house originates back to the year 1500. Back then, it was known as Iversnæs.

The Wedellsborg name was first used when Wilhelm Friedrich von Wedel took over the manor in 1672 and founded the county which still exists.

Count Bendt Wedell, the current count, was assigned Count of Frijsenborg and Wedellsborg at the age of 7 in 1982.


Wedellsborg in brief

Frijsenborg and Wedellsborg as a whole constitute a modern agricultural and forestry business that spans over more than 8700 hectares.

At Wedellsborg, the agricultural area is almost twice the size of Frijsenborg, while Frijsenborg has the largest forest areas – which also includes the company's own garden center.

Wedellsborg is one of Denmark's oldest family possessions, with inheritance back to the beginning of the 17th century.

The Wedell-Wedellborg family also has royal roots, and the count today, Bendt Wedell, manages both manor houses.
