Nösslinge Church

Skällinge, Sweden

Nösslinge Church was originally built in the Middle Ages, but restored in 1688 and 1865. There are beautiful paintings from the three periods painted in 1654, 18th century and 1812.

The church has a medieval door that once graced an earlier church. The font was made in the thirteenth century, and the pulpit, made in the 1500s, is the oldest in Halland county.

Vacker liten kyrka. Det lilla utrymmet gav en extra känsla av närhet och gemenskap i det svåra att ta farväl av en älskad människa.

Petersberg Citadel

The Petersberg Citadel is one of the largest extant early-modern citadels in Europe and covers the whole north-western part of the Erfurt city centre. It was built after 1665 on Petersberg hill and was in military use until 1963. It dates from a time when Erfurt was ruled by the Electors of Mainz and is a unique example of the European style of fortress construction. Beneath the citadel is an underground maze of passageways that can be visited on guided tours organised by Erfurt Tourist Office.

The citadel was originally built on the site of a medieval Benedictine Monastery and the earliest parts of the complex date from the 12th century. Erfurt has also been ruled by Sweden, Prussia, Napoleon, the German Empire, the Nazis, and post-World War II Soviet occupying forces, and it was part of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). All of these regimes used Petersberg Citadel and had an influence on its development. The baroque fortress was in military use until 1963. Since German reunification in 1990, the citadel has undergone significant restoration and it is now open to the public as a historic site.
