Gallows Hill, Devil’s Bog and Tinka’s Christmas

Tinka’s Christmas Adventure was an advent calendar on television for children last year.
Many scenes took place by the lake; Brænteljung.
The lake is artificially landscaped and a great success for breeding swans.
On a day like today the scenery actually is like an adventure.
There are many sunken roads in the forest created by the past’s traffic with ox or horse-drawn carriages.
Gallows Hill speaks for itself, fortunately, there are no leftovers from the past but a small hill by the road with newly sprouted beech trees.
Devil’s Bog is nothing but a wonderful bog.
Or so I hope! 🙂

  1. You have the most interesting walks. All kinds of history and legends are wrapped up in them.

    • Thank you, Fred. I love that kind of walks, but they can easily develop into some kind of addiction 🙂

  2. Hi! I just discovered your blog. Thanks for sharing your beautiful walks. It’s great to see other parts of the world. 🙂

    • Thanks a lot, Indah! Hopefully there is an adventure for all who seeks a path in nature ❤ 🙂

    • Dear Isabel. You are most welcome. Hareskovene are some of Denmark’s oldest forests.
      I really appreciate the cultural history of the forest which is very unique. Single stones have scratches, signs and grooves. These are engravings from “pre-Christian” time.
      “Several of these stone plants with their funnel pits point to statistical safety at sunrise at summer and winter solstice and also at the European age of the Iron Age.” /

  3. I think they named this beautiful place Devil’s Bog to discourage too many people from exploring it. What a gorgeous landscape! Beautiful photos as always, Hanna. xx

    • Perhaps the Nordic folklore has a pronounced taste for koleorit in the many dark hours, Heide 🙂 🙂
      Thanks a lot!!
