Photographer's Note

Brundlund Castle is very nicely situated on an islet close to the Aabenraa fiord and the oldest part of the town of Aabenraa. It was originally built by Queen Margrethe I in 1411. The medieval castle has served during the years as a royal, ducal and national seat of administration.
In the castle, the visitors can still experience the dungeon, the fortified cellar and the 19th century detention cells in the gatehouse.
The castle has been rebuild a number of times, most recently in 1805 and has been fully restored in 1985. Since 1998, the castle has housed the region’s art museum. Brundlund Castle Art Museum displays alternating exhibitions of the museum's collection of Danish art from the 1700s up until the present. The castle gardens contain permanently exhibited sculptures.
