Fejø Church

Fejø, Denmark

Fejø Church oldest part was constructed in 1240, while the chancel, nave and church porch were added over the subsequent decades. In the Middle Ages the church was dedicated to St Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors. The church is situated right down by the water and originally served as a church for the surrounding islands, from where the congregation came to church by boat.

The church has a tiled pyramidical roof. The altarpiece dates back to the 17th century and is made by the same master as the pulpit and the epitaph on the previous vicars of the church. The Gothic limestone font was made in Gotland.

Here there is a service almost all Sundays at 10,30 am. If you want to see the church maybe you can find the gardener on the new churchyard. She is very helpfull The main churchyard is not around the church but a little away. the old churchyard around the church is not used anymore, because by high water the water comes in from sea.

Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg

The Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg is situated in a strategic area on a rocky spur overlooking the Upper Rhine Plain, it was used by successive powers from the Middle Ages until the Thirty Years' War when it was abandoned. From 1900 to 1908 it was rebuilt at the behest of the German kaiser Wilhelm II. Today it is a major tourist site, attracting more than 500,000 visitors a year.

The first records of a castle built by the Hohenstaufens date back to 1147. The fortress changed its name to Koenigsburg (royal castle) around 1157. The castle was handed over to the Tiersteins by the Habsburgs following its destruction in 1462. They rebuilt and enlarged it, installing a defensive system designed to withstand artillery fire.

The fortification work accomplished over the 15th century did not suffice to keep the Swedish artillery at bay during the Thirty Years War, and the defences were overrun.
