Boller castle was first mentioned in 1350, when it was owned by Otte Limbek (Queen Margareth's trusted man). The current main building was built in 1550-1588 and reconstructed in 1759. Today it is owned by Horsens Municipality and used as a nursing home. The beautiful park and meander along the forest road through the valley to Boller water mill is open to the public.

Blomster, sommerfugle og vand med åkander. Kan klart anbefales til hele familien. Flere bænke og stole som indbyder til at sidde ned og slappe af. Selve slottet er lukket for offentligheden undtagen ved enkelte lejligheder, men den tilhørende have oase er klart et besøg værd i sommertiden. Åbent 1. April - 15. Oktober

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
