Lindesberg Church

Lindesberg, Sweden

The earliest known traces of a Lindesberg town are in the foundations of the 14th century stone church and Cistercian abbey. The current church was built in 1658, but it suffered badly of great fire in 1869. The church was reconstructed to the current appearance in 1872.

After a wonderful midnight mass at the Christmas eve given by a joyful priest who greeted each guest in the hands and sanitised several times, on my way out I stood shortly in the fojer to wait for my family, only for an old man to come down by his nose first after missing a step because of the doors which stood half way open, I helped him up and to his walker. He didn't need more helo but a rest to calm down. But some how i couldn't shake off the thought about the absence of a ramp at the main entrance.

Stripped, ascetic church. Unfortunately, in terms of interior design, not the most beautiful of Bergslagen's churches!

Rosenborg Castle

Rosenborg Palace was built in the period 1606-34 as Christian IV’s summerhouse just outside the ramparts of Copenhagen. Christian IV was very fond of the palace and often stayed at the castle when he resided in Copenhagen, and it was here that he died in 1648. After his death, the palace passed to his son King Frederik III, who together with his queen, Sophie Amalie, carried out several types of modernisation.

The last king who used the place as a residence was Frederik IV, and around 1720, Rosenborg was abandoned in favor of Frederiksborg Palace.Through the 1700s, considerable art treasures were collected at Rosenborg Castle, among other things items from the estates of deceased royalty and from Christiansborg after the fire there in 1794.

Soon the idea of a museum arose, and that was realised in 1833, which is The Royal Danish Collection’s official year of establishment.
