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).
One of the many halls.
An outdoor fountain in the wall of the castle.
The balcony of the chapel part of the old castle in daylight, built about 425 years ago.
An other hall, perfect for dancing.
A sculpture in the park – isn’t she beautiful..?
An old viking ship, very well preserved after lying in a bog for centuries.
An accompanying annex in the park.
