Rumlaborg Castle Ruins

Huskvarna, Sweden

Rumlaborg castle was built around 1360 - the first written record dates from 1366. In 1434 it was burned down during the so-called Engelbrekt rebellion and rebuilt again in 1448 by Karl Knutsson Bonde. In the 17th century the castle lost its defensive purpose and in 1850s the site was moved as a park with pavillion.

It's always as nice to get there

Nice to walk around, a little shame that the Lusthuset looks very much included. But good with the benches around, where you can sit o look o philosophize ......

Historic medieval site that neither municipality nor any other state actor devoted any commitment to. Not even an information board.

Huskvarna's landmark .... ;-)

Historic site well worth a visit. The castle built in the 14th century for strategic function. More fact signs should, however, be set up in the park and hiking area. Among other things, the understanding had increased if its former appearance was illustrated on overview signs.

Wieskirche

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
