The Cemetery Mariebjerg

Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the Earth are never alone or weary of life.
Rachel Carson

I wouldn’t dwell too much here when the night comes but now with the sun reflected in the frost, the cemetery is very beautiful. It’s always a pleasure to take a stroll among the huge trees and corridors.
Mariebjerg Cemetery is designated as one of the ten most significant works of architecture in Denmark. Mariebjerg was built in the years 1926-1936 under the direction of architect G. N. Brandt.

Mariebjerg Cemetery

Before We Die

Before us great Death stands
Our fate held close within his quiet hands.
When with proud joy we lift Life’s red wine
To drink deep of the mystic shining cup
And ecstasy through all our being leaps—
Death bows his head and weeps.
by Rainer Maria Rilke

In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
Abraham Lincoln

Happy Weekend ❤

‘Bernstoffsparken’

Jeg har ofte cyklet forbi Bernstoffsparken ad Jægersborg Allé, men forleden gjorde jeg et ophold. Vejret var for godt til ikke at udforske parken.
Den overraskede positivt. Stor variation med niveauforskelle, beplantning, sø og flere rum i slotshaven.
I parken er der en café, som drives af frivillige.
Bernstoff Slot stiller en lang række faciliteter til rådighed, men det bliver nok aldrig som dengang, da ‘Europas Svigerfar’ Christian den 9. brugte slottet som sommerresidens : Bernstoff Slot

Falder jeres vej forbi slottet, så er en vandretur hele vejen rundt i parken en anbefaling værd.
