A different ghost story

Sønderborg Castle by the harbor in the southernmost of the danish peninsula Jutland.

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

Down in the basement of the castle there are four grave crypts with several sarcophagis.
There is only access for very few and only in relation to the ducal family.
Used until the middle of the 1800s – can usually only visited once a year.

Up to the opening, so cleaning is to be done for the visit.
The crypt had been locked since the year before.
From the late 1960s when the cleaning people came in.
So they saw the sarcophagis had moved several centimeters, happens then every year.

So the stories start that the old duke has returned as a ghost.
The ghost stories won’t die, until many years after so the sarcophagis stops moving
There was just as much wonder over it stops as when it started.

The secret of the sarcophagis was just outside.
At the quay a few meters from the castle’s wall, during this period with small cruise ships.
Cruise over Flensburg Fjord to Germany with cheap food and drink aboard.
The bumps from the ships propagated with shaking and the sarcophagis moved a little.
