Sophiendal Manor is located in the highland between Ejer Bavnehøj and Himmelbjerget. Vast forests, lakes and rivers make Sophiendal's location spectacular. The deers can be heard belling in the valleys and the eagles screaming.
The abbey church is situated behind the manor. The church was built in 1058 and is the oldest in the country. After the Reformation, the monastery was placed under Skanderborg castle until 1767, when the king sold Venggaard to the prefect von Woyda. He built the manor and called it Sophiendal after his wife Sophie.
The manor has 40 beautifully decorated rooms, all with canopy beds. The old farm buildings have been converted into conference rooms with modern facilities.
