Herregården Egeløkke

N.F.S. Grundtvig was a private tutor at Egeløkke from 1805 - 1808.

The present buildings of Egeløkke as well as the surrounding landscape are almost exclusively typical of the 1800s, and the main building from 1845 is Classical style. N.F.S. Grundtvig was a private tutor at Egeløkke from 1805 - 1808 and fell hopelessly in love with the lady of the house, Constance Leth. Unfortunately, his love was unrequited, which may have had an important influence on his poetry. Private Property, no access.
