Nature, activity and communication centre
In the village of Vester Broby south of Sorø lies Kongsgården - a farm dating back to the first half of the 1800s and which comprises a rare, solid cultural environment. Kongsgården is currently being restored and converted to a nature, activity and communication centre, focusing on life in the country in the mid 1900s. Part of the farm will also be converted into overnight accommodation for hikers. Owners of Kongsgården, the Lone and Ejler Kjær Larsens Fund and Realdania are behind the financing of the project.

Traditional farming culture brought to life
Kongsgården has since olden times been the town’s largest farm. The farmhouse was until 2006 the home of Lone Kjær Larsen, who had run the farm together with her husband all their life. Before she died Lone Kjær Larsen founded the non-profit making ”Lone og Ejler Kjær Larsen Fund”, with the wish that the farm should remain an active environment where traditional farming culture should be brought to life. This wish is now being granted with the construction of the quadrangular farm building. The preservation of Kongsgården and the traditional farming culture has been achieved in close collaboration with the local friends’ association and the local museum.
