Alt var lukket så der var ingen adgang til selve slottet. Man kunne gå en lille tur ved søen og ikke andet. Men flot område.

Skånes största slott till ytan. Fantastisk vy över Oppmannasjön.

Nice but private

nice private castle - you are not allowed to enter or do something else

Sätter enligt kristianstadsbladet upp taggtråd på markerna, i halshöjd på ställen där det cyklats länge. Vem vill ha något att göra med makägare som ämnar att skada cyklister allvarligt? Vidrigt. Varför ska man då besöka om de har en sån attityd? Otroligt vidrigt.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
