Glücksburg Castle (German: Schloss Glücksburg, Danish: Lyksborg Slot) is a water castle (Wasserschloss) in the town of Glücksburg, Germany. It is one of the most important Renaissance castles in northern Europe.It is the seat of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg and was also used by the Danish kings.
Situated on the Flensburg Fjord the castle is now a museum owned by a foundation, and is no longer inhabited by the ducal family. Its board of directors is chaired by Christoph, Prince of Schleswig-Holstein, the current titular duke and head of the House of Glücksburg and House of Oldenburg.

The interior of the castle is mostly authentic. I was allowed to take photos. The condition was that I should not publish the photos (for commercial purposes).

This Saturday I visited Essen with two ‚long term‘ friends, who I had not seen in ages. Richard went to the ‚Spiel‘ fair, and Ina and me went to photograph together.
First in the city, later, when the weather went dry, in the Gruga Park.
I learned a few things and I also am now the prooud owner of a few ‚miniature figures‘, with what my photography might get a new dimension.
So, ladies and gentlemen, we proudly present the FriBi!
The bus is here waiting for the train, and you will find out in the future who are in it. 🙂
But, not in this photo blog. Here you find the pictures of the trip of Ina and me. Two Queen fans who as well share the photography as passion. Enjoy!

Here we experimented with different settings to get a nice effect. If it succeeded for me?

When photographers photograp each other
and, last but not least .. the rest 🙂
And this should in fact be at the top. I lit a candle, for who, who needs it the most.
When I was standing there, looking to find the right motive (the architecture was intrigueing me), The (sea)gulls came flying and finding a place at the bridge. Appearantly they thought that I could hold a bit of bread out of my bag 🙂
And here I serve you some crumbs of the Köbogen
All in all it was an intresting walk, between old and new, nature and city. This picture sums it nicely up.
One of the annual events in our city is the ‚Hanse Fest‘
From ages ago the ‚hanse‘ cities had a prominent role in the countries economy. Lots of traditional handcraft, and trade between the Hanse Cities are based on a long traditon
In our modern times the tradition is transformed to a marketing event for the city, on wht the partner cities (the hansa städte) can presentate themselves with their specialities.
Different then the years before, and as a consequence of the disappointing performance of the ‚hansa fest‘ in the past years, I now went alone. Of course with my camera with me, good company 🙂
And, of course, there were many more photographers, such as Reinbert, who made this picture of me, full in action.
I took a bit time to watch the baking of ‚baumkuchen‘
Under the picture (click on it) is a video of the full process (german!)
Below you will find the photos that I made at the ‚HanseFest‘
