Photographer's Note

Surrounded by the moat and the oldest part of the town of Aabenraa, the 13th century castle Brundlund (see my previous post) and its park contain one of South Jutland’s most interesting gardens. The medieval castle has served during the years as a royal, ducal and national seat of administration. The turbulent history of the castle belies its wonderful sense of tranquillity today. Since 1998, the castle has housed the region’s art museum; the castle gardens contain permanently exhibited sculptures. The moat not only provides a sound barrier for this quiet space, but a natural environment for water birds. There are numerous old trees to enjoy and at this time of the year you can see the regularly visiting robins and great tits.
By the way: the collecting of sculpture, including that of earlier periods, goes back some 2,000 years in Greece and China, and many collections were available on semi-public display long before the modern museum was invented.
