The noblewoman Marie Grubbe chose the love
and a simple life

Marie Grubbes life and destiny is for us today a love story in opposition of classes, and it has during the time fascinated many people. Classic Danish authors like Ludvig Holberg, St. St. Blicher, H.C: Andersen and J.P. Jacobsen have written works about it. Also authors in recent time do still find the story fascinating to write about, such as Ulla Ryum, Juliane Preisler and Lone Hørslev.

In her last time in “Borrehuset” the now lonely 70 year old Marie Grubbe was visited by the young Ludvig Holberg, who travelled away from the plague in Copenhagen. In their following conversations she told him about her fantastic destiny and confided with him, that she in spite of earthly poverty and degradation had lived a happy life, which she would not change.



Marie Grubbe (1644-1717) lived some of her last years here on Northeast Falster

Drive and see the place where she lived together with Søren in “Borrehuset”, which only lies 7 kilometers from Stubbekøbing. You drive through beautiful landscapes until you reach the monument,  which lies to the street. Of the Borrehus there are for instance only the foundation stones left, which are protected under earth and grass. If you walk about 20 meters to the water, you will see the sound, where Søren and Marie sailed the ferry to Møn. And if you bring the lunch basket you can sit here and experience “the presence of history” in the beautiful nature on Falster.

If you drive further down the road, you will come to the old ferry.

What you see now is however of newer date.
