There was originally a defensive tower on the site of current Nørlund Castle in the 14th century. It was demolished in 1355 and the first castle was built to the site. It was however destroyed by Queen Margareth I in the late 1300s. The current castle construction started in 1570 by Ludvig Munk and it was completed in 1597.

My cousin held a wedding there and it was ABSOLUTELY magical! They were married under a huge hanging birch in the garden and it was truly just such a beautiful setting!

Love Nørlund Castle. Came as a child to many Christmas tree parties at the castle when my father worked at Nørlund Sawmill. And now fortunately it has become possible to come to the Christmas market there. Beautiful and cozy place. ❤

Regensburg Sausage Kitchen

The Historic Sausage Kitchen of Regensburg (Wurstküche) is notable as perhaps the oldest continuously open public restaurant in the world. In 1135 a building was erected as the construction office for the Regensburg stone bridge. When the bridge was finished in 1146 AD, the building became a restaurant named Garkueche auf dem Kranchen ("cookshop near the crane") as it was situated near the then river port. Dockers, sailors and the staff of the nearby St. Peter cathedral workshop were the regulars for the centuries to come. The present building at this location dates from the 17th century, but archaeological evidence has confirmed the existence of a previous building from the 12th century with about the same dimensions.

Until ca. AD 1800, the specialty was boiled meat, but when the family who currently own the restaurant took over in 1806, charcoal grilled sausages were introduced as the main dish offered. The kitchen still operates today and serves 6,000 sausages to guests daily.
