Nice place

Horbelev church is without a doubt the church in Denmark that has the best priest in Denmark ? Mette Marie is always well behaved and accommodating to everyone ? The church is always decorated with flowers and lights ?? there is a fantastic atmosphere in the church, it feels nice to be in church. The church is opposite the vicarage and a small forest. Very beautiful church and cemetery, the cemetery is always neat and tidy ? definitely a visit, especially if Mette Marie holds a church service, Mette Marie can light up an entire church room with her fantastic aura. ? if all churches had a priest, like Mette Marie, the churches would quickly be full. ? We thank you on behalf of us and our nurse, for your attendance ?

Hohenwerfen Castle

Hohenwerfen Castle stands high above the Austrian town of Werfen in the Salzach valley. The castle is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps and the adjacent Tennengebirge mountain range. The fortification is a 'sister' of Hohensalzburg Castle both dated from the 11th century.

The former fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 during the Imperial Investiture Controversy by the order of Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg as a strategic bulwark. Gebhard, an ally of Pope Gregory VII and the anti-king Rudolf of Rheinfelden, had three major castles extended to secure the Salzburg archbishopric against the forces of King Henry IV: Hohenwerfen, Hohensalzburg and Petersberg Castle at Friesach in Carinthia.
