Jenisch House (Jenisch-Haus) is a country house in Hamburg built in the 19th century and an example of Hanseatic lifestyle and neoclassical architecture. As of 2008, Jenisch House is the home of the Museum für Kunst und Kultur an der Elbe.

Jenisch House is located in Jenisch Park, Hamburg's oldest landscaped park. The park was landscaped by Caspar Voght as a model farm and arboretum about 1800. It is located in the former independent locality of Klein Flottbek, now part of the Othmarschen quarter of Hamburg with a view toward the Elbe river. In 1828 Jenisch bought the farm and gardens from Voght and redesigned the area with the construction of his house.

Die Backwaren und der Service lassen nach. Kaufe seit Ewigkeiten die Hanseaten und mein Brot bei Euch. Bin in Othmarschen über Ottensen angefangen. Kaufe mindestens 2 manchmal 8 im Monat die Hanseaten und vieles vieles mehr. Hatte am Dienstag zwei Hanseaten gekauft. Sie schmeckten chemisch und gar nicht lecker. Nach meiner Nachfrage am Donnerstag, (ergo 2 Tage später) hat sich nichts in der Rezeptur geändert und ich wäre die erste, die Kritik äußert. Unverschämt wäre das. Hatte trotzdem erneut zwei neue gekauft. Leider dominierte wieder dieser chemische Geschmack. Ist die Kritik in der Bäckerei angekommen? Ich bezweifle dieses. Zum ersten Mal habe ich mich bei Euch unwohl und überrumpelt gefühlt. Masse anstatt Klasse?

Habe das Gebäude nur von außen gesehen. Liegt am nordwestlichen Rand im dazugehörigen Park. Sieht gut erhalten aus. Innen ist ein Museum: "Kunst- und Kulturgeschichte" [Wikipedia]. Etwas weiter steht das Ernst-Barlach-Haus, in dem Kunstwerke vom Namensgeber ausgestellt werden. Dadurch ist für Kunstinteressierte das ganze Ensemble interessant. Sehenswert allemal!

Gruyères Castle

The Castle of Gruyères is one of the most famous in Switzerland. It was built between 1270 and 1282, following the typical square plan of the fortifications in Savoy. It was the property of the Counts of Gruyères until the bankruptcy of the Count Michel in 1554. His creditors the cantons of Fribourg and Bern shared his earldom. From 1555 to 1798 the castle became residence to the bailiffs and then to the prefects sent by Fribourg.

In 1849 the castle was sold to the Bovy and Balland families, who used the castle as their summer residency and restored it. The castle was then bought back by the canton of Fribourg in 1938, made into a museum and opened to the public. Since 1993, a foundation ensures the conservation as well as the highlighting of the building and the art collection.

The castle is the home of three capes of the Order of the Golden Fleece. They were part of the war booty captured by the Swiss Confederates (which included troops from Gruyères) at the Battle of Morat against Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy in 1476. As Charles the Bold was celebrating the anniversary of his father's death, one of the capes is a black velvet sacerdotal vestment with Philip the Good's emblem sewn into it.

A collection of landscapes by 19th century artists Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Barthélemy Menn and others are on display in the castle.
