Keeping to the trend of Northern Zealand let's have a look at Melby's early Bronze Age burial mounts..

"Syvhøje"

These roughly 3500 year old burial mounts was escavated centuries ago and is today open to the public and a popular picnic destination..
In the summer there's sheep grazing there..

We went there in the evening to see the sunset..

No, not the kind from the pictures: "Snog" ( European Grass Snake ).. and the others can at worst be harmful to kids or sick elderly... and bite cases are VERY rare..


The only real dangerous animal we have in the woods is the tiny tick insect "Skovflåt" ( "castor bean tick" ) that can carry diseases that transfers when it bites.. ( the risk for transfer is tiny ) - after 30 years of going camping, being a soldier and a scout with 100s of nights spend sleeping outside and 1000s of days I have yet to resieve my first tick bite, so I wouldn't worry too much about those either.. they seem to prefere dogs..

It's been a while since I've posted anything urban, so here you go..

Melby

A small village just north of Frederiksværk ( shown earlier ) mostly known for it's old mill, trainstation and church.. and the burial mounts shown above..



















Small paths like this cross trough the village - a nice alternative to sidewalk and cars..

After forest, fields and city it's time for the sea...

Tisvilde Strand

With more than 7200km the Danish coastline is one of Europe's longest ( more than twice that of Sweden ) and most of it is white sandy beach..

Tisvilde Strand is a great example of how it naturally looks and what plants lives along the sandy coastline

As we start to go inland from the coast we get into the..

"Troldeskoven"
"Troll Forest"


Today there is sadly not many trolls left - and those left are very shy - but if you move slowly and silently you might just spot one..
( Note: there's one in one of the pictures ) just don't get too close, they can be dangerous in you corner them!

Asserbo Ruin
















Horse parking in the middle of the forest

^pics are coming, but I sadly don't have as much disposable time as I used to for photos but in time I will post a lot more from this summer..

To begin with here's some from June 5 where we visited the western part of Zealand..



Torbenfeldt

This small castle dating back to 1377 has a nice location in a small lake with a nice forest bordering it..

In this first part I'll take a look at the castle and surrounding church and farms..

Going to bump it to the next page as I have a lot of new pics and I don't want the pages to get too picture heavy since many use their phones to brwose SSC these days..
