The monastery was demolished in 1561 and the materials were used to build the New Skanderborg castle. This castle was built on an island in Skanderborg lake. After the rebellion and wars, the castle was also demolished. The materials from the castle went to build a new fortress on land where the chapel later became Skanderborg Castle Church.

So the old stones from the monastery can still be seen in the castle church that stands there.

The museum is small and really cozy. There is a fantastic view of Mossø. There are also a number of benches and tables for drinking coffee.

There are many graves with windows in which the skeletons can be seen and in the exhibition there are plenty of skeletons with descriptions of the malformations and war damage they had.

Some of the herbs monks used as medicine still grow wild and many of them are quite toxic. The botanist Jens Lind saved some plants in 1926 and created the garden as it looks today.

If this translation does not make sense, please send me a better translation, I speak Danish, German and English. But writing these texts is somewhat more difficult.

Next attempt was made in 1940, where everything went as it should. The megalithic grave was restored and is still beautiful and there are probably no more stones falling down.
