With its serene and undisturbed location, Margård Gods offers the perfect settings for private strategy meetings and product presentations. The beautiful Funen-located manor hosts events for organisations from all over Denmark.
Built in 1745, the picturesque white main building of Margård Gods, offers both a homely and exclusive venue for seminars of all kinds. The manor is run by Dorthe Møller and her husband Per Bo Hansen. “The fact that the manor is also our home means that despite the classic and exclusive interiors, we have a very homely atmosphere, and that’s something a lot of our guests notice and enjoy,” says Møller, who manages the manor’s events while her husband runs the agricultural production. She adds: “Another benefit of our setup, is the complete privacy – we only ever host one event at a time and our location is withdrawn, away from any passing traffic or people.”
As there is never more than one group at the manor at the same time, guests have exclusive use of the beautiful rooms and spaces available. The main room, Havesalen (the garden room), can host events such as concerts and lectures for up to 70 people, but it is mainly used for smaller meetings, explains Møller. “We host a lot of strategy seminars for 10-12 people. They can then use the large hall, where we have all our technical equipment, for presentations and meetings, move on to the fireplace lounge for smaller group discussions, and then perhaps to the billiard room for a bit of a break and a drink. And for breakfast, coffee, lunch, and dinner, there’s the dining room.”
On top of the selection of beautiful rooms, the manor also includes a large scenic garden, perfect for walk-and-talks or a quick recharge in lush green surroundings.
Margård Gods is located in-between Odense and Bogense, a two-hour drive from Copenhagen, 90 minutes from Aarhus and 20 minutes from Odense.
The manor can host events for up to 70 people, but specialises in seminars for up to 12 people.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are based on the earth-to-table principle with local ingredients served in down-to-earth modern Danish dishes.
