Copenhagen in Late Summer

Founded as a settlement by the Vikings in the 10th century, Copenhagen grew exponentially in the following centuries becoming the capital of Denmark in 1416. The inner city was destroyed several times by the plague and fires and was rebuilt in a neoclassic style during the so called Danish Golden Age in the early 19th century. Although many other parts of Copenhagen are modern and somewhat functionalist the inner city still represents the glory and richness of these past times. Photographies from a walk during late Summer 2019.

Discovering Lübeck

Lübeck is a town in Northern Germany, once the great capital of the Hanse, a union of merchants in the middle ages which dominated trade in the Baltic seas for many centuries. So the city was also called the Queen of the Hanse and it’s inhabitants used to be wealthy and influential. Many beautiful buildings, especially churches, were built in these blooming years. Lübeck has a beautiful and well preserved historic inner town with a lot of water surrounding it, which makes for nice perspectives. The photographies were shot in September 2019.

Ribe in Pictures

Ribe ist regarded as one of the oldest towns in Denmark. An important church was built here by the missionary Ansgar of Bremen in the 9th century, probably the first church in Scandinavia altogether. By then the town was already well known as port town and for its sophisticated craftsmen. Nowadays Ribe is of middle size but the church is still one of the finest examples of sacral architecture in Denmark and the inner town is lively and colourful.
