Photographer's Note

The picture is taken at Spøttrup Castle from around 1500 is one of the most remarkable of Danish country manors because it shows what a medieval baronial castle looked like. In their time, both Reformation gunfire and Skipper Clement's peasant army tried to penetrate these defences – but in vain. Although over the centuries the castle was subjected to modification and ravage, following extensive repairs around 1940 Spøttrup is the best example of a medieval Danish fortress.

Today the castle houses a museum showing the public how people lived, fought and worked at the castle over the years, and in the summer season there are various concerts, medieval markets and other cultural events focusing on days gone by. For schools, the museum has a special offer of teaching brought-to-life where children can try out medieval clothing and lifestyles.
