If walls could talk

Schloß Gottorf (german) a half stone’s throw from the city of Schleswig.

My inspiration comes from wonderful “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes..
Short visit in the area close around a part of my childhood long ago.

The castle was the former residence of the dukes of Schleswig-Holstein
once the residence of the danish king, so a royal palace – now region museum
Landesmuseen Schleswig-Holstein  Schloß Gottorf.
Originally in both Northern Schleswig (danish) and South Schleswig (german).

A sculpture in the park – isn’t she beautiful..?
