HANNA'S WALK

The Park

Sophienholm is an old country house at Bagsvaerd Lake, built-in 1768-69. Today, the buildings give room for the art museum Sophienholm.
The park is a very popular excursion and makes up a small part of a spectacular greenery.

 

I’m walking in steep hills among ancient trees in an icy cold rain. I put my course towards the Norwegian Hut.
High above the lake lies the little wooden house as a part of an artistic installation, Eremitagen og bjergbestigersken.
In former time at the same place was a house where poets could sit and write.
In 1993, when the art work was complete, an author could receive the key to the house.
In the middle of the wood with a view over the water artists can meditate or write inspired by nature and tranquillity.
A pale concrete foundation under the house is the starting point for the work of art. The concrete protrusion faces Norway. Thus the name the Norwegian House.

My walk continue towards Sophienholm with its associated buildings and greenhouse. Today I stick to the humble buildings if one might call the Cobra Room for humble.

Some of the most outstanding artists in Denmark are represented at Sophienholm.

WHERE DID I TAKE YOU?

Eremitagen og Bjergbestigersken

Solen skinnede for første gang i lang tid, og en vandring langs havnebassinerne i København fristede endnu engang. Der, hvor der var læ, sad folk og nød solen.

Jeg gik ud på Kalvebod Bølge, et helt enestående badeanlæg med ‘gangbroer’ ude i havnen.

Overfor Kalvebod Bølge ligger Københavns Havnebad Islands Brygge. Der var besøgende i havnebadet, i badetøj naturligvis. Jeg tror, vandet var varmere end luften, for vinden var iskold. På kanten af et bassin stod der Las Palmas! Det eneste vi mangler er palmer.

Hørte jeg nogen tale om vikinger? Det er meget passende, fordi det snart er vintersolhverv. Om 10 dage, den 22. december kl. 5.48. Efter vintersolhverv bliver dagene længere, og  lyset vender tilbage.

“Vintersolhverv er en glædens dag, fordi den er symbolet på lysets tilbagevenden i vort liv. Vintersolhverv er vikingernes jul, hvor de ikke fejrede men drak jól og havde midvinterblót, en ofring for at sikre frugtbarhed.” Vintersolhverv

Jeg glæder mig, og jeg har tænkt mig at fejre dagen i naturen. Måske skinner solen også den dag 🙂

God tur i solen i morgen ❤
