My strange heirloom

As a 16-year-old Christina Hou Holck suddenly inherited Holckenhavn Castle, a gigantic monstrosity of a Renaissance building in red stone where Danish kings and queens have tripped around since the 1600s.
When Christina inherited the gigantic place, it was impossible to live in. No electricity and humidity made the ancient castle uninhabitable. But with her husband, the young castle owners restored every room in a style that would have gotten the royal family to nod appreciatively.

Since 2007, Christina has run the place with her husband, Dennis. Today Hockenhavn Castle is good business. It is rented for banquets, weddings, and conference rooms.
Check out the video, it's in Danish but still cool.
