Stångby church is located in the old village. When the railway arrived in the 1800s transferred much of the village south to Lund and is now next Pågatåg Station and Tower embankment. The church dates back to the 1100s. It played an important role during the Battle of Lund in 1676 and was intended as a Swedish viewpoint, but the battles were fought farther south. However, held an impromptu staff meeting on horseback a few hundred meters from the church. Where Charles XI decided to deliver battle and Skåne became Swedish. Both the Swedish, Danish and Scanian history was thus next Stångby church.

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.
