Hunting estate in Trend

In Trend Skov lies a hunting property, which has been the Royal Family’s residence since the time of Christian X.

The low, angular log house was built by Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid with funds they received as a national gift in connection with their wedding on 24 May 1935. The money was invested in a share of the 431-hectare forest and in the hunting lodge, which is located just a few kilometers from Bjørnsholm Bay, Limfjorden, from which Trend River winds its way into the Northern Jutland landscape. Frederik IX often used the property to hunt and as a refuge for the family during the holidays. In 1955, Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid transferred the estate to an independent foundation, 'Fonden Jagtejendommen i Trend Skov', by a deed of gift.
