  • The Engestoft is 3 km east of Maribo on the north side of Søndersø. Engestfrequently mentioned the first time in King Valdemars Jordebog 1231 as a crown cargo. In 1459, Engestoft became a royal le. King Hans Dispossworn in 1496 engestoft in a change of power with Jørgen Baad. In 1727, Engestoft was bought by the wealthy merchant from Nykøbing Falster Bertel Wichmand and his lineage owned Engestoft for nearly 250 years. Wichmand died already in 1732 and his wife Bodil From took over the estate and controlled it to 22-year-old son Jørgen Wichmand to take over it in 1751. When Jørgen Wichmand took over the Engestoft, everything was very overdue. In his long time as owner until his death in 1799, Jørgen Wichmand managed to bring prosperity to the engestoft. He carried out an early replacement of the estate's peasant lands. In 1777 he joined his brother in the Danish noble tooth under the name Wichfeld. He created a family house of Engestoft and Ulriksdal. When he was childless himself, he surpassed his brother, Henning T. Wichfeld. The current main building allowed Henning T. Wichfeld to construct 1804 – 07. The last Wichfeld at Engestoft was Jørgen Adalbert Wichfeld, who owned the estate until his death in 1965. Jørgen Adalbert Wichfeld was married to English-born Monica Wichfeld. She participated actively in the resistance movement during the war. She was arrested in 1944 by the Germans. She was sentenced to death but later pardoning to the prison house for Life. She died during her prison stay in Germany. Jørgen Adalbert Wichfeld's death estate sold Engestoft to manufacturer William E. Berntsen. His son William Odd Berntsen inherited the goods in 1995. By his death in the same year, Engestoft surpassed a foundation. In 2003 Frederik von Lüttichau Engestoft acquired together with Søholt and Ulriksdal. He sold in 2011 Engestoft with 840 hectares to Hans Peter Egeskov.

  • Great place to have a nice Christmas market. The atmosphere is absolutely top notch, there are cute, smiling and helpful people everywhere. The bodes are very different and there is so much to choose from. There is plenty of music and the level in the café is good, for example, you get real whipped cream in its warm cacao. Highly recommend a trip down there.
