Our Danish Flag

Our Danish Flag

Hetalia- Denmark~ According to legend, the flag came into Danish possession during the Battle of Lyndanisse in 1219. The Danes were on a failing crusade in Estonia, but after praying to God a flag fell from the sky. After this event, Danish King Valdemar II went on to defeat the Estonians. The first recorded uses of the flag appear some one hundred years later.

The Østerlars Round Church

The Østerlars Round Church

The largest and most impressive of Bornholm's round churches dates back to at least from 1150, and its seven weighty buttresses and upper-level shooting gallery give away its former role as a fortress. The roof was originally constructed with a flat top to serve as a battle platform, but the excessive weight this exerted on the church walls saw it eventually replaced with its present conical one. The interior is largely whitewashed, although a swath of medieval frescoes has been uncovered and restored.

You'll find a rune stone dating back to 1070 at the church entrance and a sundial above it.

A 4km cycle path to the church leads inland south from Gudhjem; the church can also be reached on either bus 1 or 9 from Gudhjem. From Rønne, catch bus 4.

Diese rustikal felsigen Fischerhäuser stehen auf Christiansø (www.bornholm-ferien.de/christianso.php). Bei einem Tagesausflug von Gudhjem aus kann man auf den Ertholmene (Erbseninseln) neben vielen massiven Festungsanlagen mit Kanonen auch ein altes Gefängnis besichtigen.

J-Day 2014 – This year’s snow fall d. 1/11 pm. 20:59

J-day or Blizzard are all names that cover the launch of this year’s Christmas beer. On this day, we consume a huge amount of Christmas beers and celebrate that Christmas is approaching.
Most Danes know the blue and white advertisement for Tuborg Julebryg (Tuborg Christmas Brew). But probably not many know that the famous animated commercial, which features Santa Claus in blue clothing, is actually older than the beer itself. The commercial was originally launched in 1980 as a special holiday commercial for ordinary Tuborg pilsner, but it became so popular that for Christmas 1981 they created the special Tuborg Julebryg (Christmasbeer).
