On a stroll through Tønder - Denmark















Tønder, city, southwestern Jutland, Denmark, southwest of Åbenrå. Founded in the 13th century and chartered in 1243, it was a prosperous seaport in the Middle Ages until its harbour silted up. From the 17th to early 19th century it was the centre of a lace industry, which was revived after 1920. Industries include high-tech aluminum and cardboard manufacturing. Of historic interest are Christ Church (1592), with its medieval tower; many old gabled houses; and the gatehouse-museum of the 16th-century Tønderhus Castle (destroyed 1750). The main street of the nearby village of Møgeltønder, with its thatched cottages, is a national monument. The Schackenborg Castle is a royal residence. The city, within the border region of Sønderjylland (North Schleswig), passed to Germany in 1864 but was returned to Denmark by a plebiscite in 1920.

There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I'm born to leave.

Spring forever appears
the soothing music part
of lyrics unspoken.
It thaws the frozen fears,
mends the wounded heart
that Winter has broken.

“My soul is full of longing
for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean
sends a thrilling pulse through me.”

"I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring.
Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature's rebirth?"
