In the middle of the history

Dragsholm Castle is one of the oldest functioning secular buildings in Denmark.
With plenty of historical glimpses deposited in the walls, already mentioned in 1313.
Bishop-castle, royal castle, state prison – now famous restaurant with accommodation.
Most prominent prisoner is the scottish earl James Hepburn, who sat in the basement.
A young noble woman was walled alive in a wall all because she loved the wrong one.
These two appear like ghosts at the castle to this day yet.
Want to meet the Earl, the White Lady, the Grey Lady and some more, stay up at night.

A walk inspired from wonderful “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes.

The castle mirrored in one of the small castle ponds.

An other pond and the old building for the inside staff of the castle.

Perhaps those two old trees remember, in the past ships sailed right to the castle.

Amazing spice herb garden, under the responsibility of the chef.

 Old old tree half dead and half very much alive.

  1. Especially love the reflective shot, Drake. 🙂 🙂 It would be rather nice to see those ghosts engaged in a courtly dance together. Many thanks for sharing. Have a great week!

      Have visited the castle several times, mostly in connection with internal business meetings with accommodation. Years ago a colleague who always made practical joke, we found out he believed in ghosts. So we made a little bit fun. He didn’t close an eye all night and looked like a hung cat in the morning. With that kind of friends, don’t need enemies. 😀

      Fascinerede sted, har været der flere gange. Det sjoveste var et 3 dages internt koncernmøde. Hvor vi spillede på en af de andre chefers skræk for spøgelser. Han lukkede ikke et øje om natten, lignede en hængt kat om morgenen. Der var ikke det spøgelse han påstod ikke at havde hørt/set i løbet af natten selv Baskervilles hund. Hvad skal man med fjender med så’n nogle venner. 😉

      • Det er det bedste, jeg ved! Spøgelser i de rette omgivelser 🙂 Jeg havde en gammel veninde, præsteenke. Hun var i stand til at tryllebinde et helt selskab i timevis – også når hun var gået hjem!! 😀
