The historical roots of this magnificent place extend as far back as the middle of the 12 th century, when French Cistercian monks founded Herrevad monastery. Danish and Swedish history meet here, as does the history of religion, science and military training. It was here that the world known astronomer Tycho Brahe observed a new star in the constellation Cassiopeia, on 11th of november 1572. The publication of his discovery paved the way for modern scientific thinking, away from the middle age's religious dogmas.
Between 1902 and 1958, a depot for dressage of horses for the Swedish army was established here. Every year, young horses were bought from the farmers in the area and trained for a year to endure battle conditions.
Herrevad's history moved on as the army was modernized and the cavalry became outdated. The buildings were used for a time as board and lodging for young Air Force students. It was then that Herrevad's buildings were given names that had a historical anchorage to the place: The Monk, The Abbot, Cassiopeia, The Long Stable. They are now being transformed into safe and comfortable accommodation in the community.
