Jeg endte med at gå en smut igennem Koldinghus. Har aldrig været der, og det er virkelig længe siden jeg har været på museum.
This Saturday, when I was going home from Kolding, I bought a train ticket for a later train than everyone else's train. So suddenly, I had an extra, nice hour in Kolding.
I ended up visiting "Koldinghus". I've never been there, and it is really a long time since I went to a museum last time.
(Det holdt så lige til jeg skulle skynde mig for at nå toget og IKKE kunne finde en udgang!)
The castle is really nice, and it seems not too big when standing in the courtyard. All I had to do was go up and down the stairs in the tower and look at the different floors.
(Which worked well until I had to hurry to catch the train and COULDN'T find an exit!)
Faktisk var det åbenbart dér, de havde svenskerne siddende, så jeg kunne vel føle mig halvt hjemme. Eller noget.
The first thing I wanted to see, were the dungeons. How often do you get to see such? It looked really spooky, but once I was down there, it wasn't too bad.
Actually, this was the very place they kept the Swedish prisoners, so I suppose I might just as well feel a bit at home......
Det var helt FORKERT! Når man har gået i skole i Hillerød og hørt alle historierne om ham, så får man et specielt forhold til lige præcis den her konge, og så har han åbenbart også været i Jylland? Jeg er skuffet......
In the knight's hall, there was a picture of Christian the 4th. MY Christian the 4th! That they apparently thought were their king, since he spend some time there as a kid.
It felt so WRONG! Going to school in Hillerød, listening to all the stories about him, you get a really special relationship to this very king, and suddenly it seems like he went to Jutland as well? I'm so disappointed........
On top of the tower, there was a nice view of town, and this statue really seemed to enjoy it.
Jeg nåede ikke at se det hele på knapt 1 time, men det ville nu ikke genere mig at komme tilbage. (Og jeg nåede iøvrigt toget.....)
There were some more civilized rooms than the dungeons. For instance this pretty room with a nice little library. Could be cool! Maybe I need a taller room, but the clock and the books are already here with me and ready to start!
I didn't have time to see everything in slightly less than 1 hour, but it wouldn't bother me to come back. (And I did catch my train, by the way......)
