Bjolderup Church

Bolderslev, Denmark

Bjolderup Church was built in the 12th century probably to replace a wooden church. It was expanded in the 15th century and and the tower was added in 1589. It was burned in the war or 1624-1627. In the church there are many paintings from 1778 painted by the Aabenraa artist Jess Jessen.

A thousand thanks for a completely fantastic church and not least our local pastor, Martin, made our son Mikkel's day something special, to date the greatest church experience in connection with a confirmation for us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything ecclesiastical Mikkel received in connection with his confirmation, both as a priest and on the day itself. 5 stars for the church, but there is not enough star on the scale for Martin priest and his team. Thank you from the bottom of my heart

Hohenwerfen Castle

Hohenwerfen Castle stands high above the Austrian town of Werfen in the Salzach valley. The castle is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps and the adjacent Tennengebirge mountain range. The fortification is a 'sister' of Hohensalzburg Castle both dated from the 11th century.

The former fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 during the Imperial Investiture Controversy by the order of Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg as a strategic bulwark. Gebhard, an ally of Pope Gregory VII and the anti-king Rudolf of Rheinfelden, had three major castles extended to secure the Salzburg archbishopric against the forces of King Henry IV: Hohenwerfen, Hohensalzburg and Petersberg Castle at Friesach in Carinthia.
