Was ihr unternehmen werdet

Meeting on the causeway leading to the former royal palace of Hirschholm: in two hours Heather will bring to life the drama, intrigue, and tragedy of the Rococco palace which was said to have rivaled the palace of Versailles in terms of grandeur in the 18th century. We will take a grand tour of the site; where we can trace the outlines of the formal lakes, the sites of mazes and fountains, and the alleys of linden trees now overgrown and arthritic in their twisted shapes. Heather knows the subject matter well and has written a book, Middle Distance, based partially upon the dramatic royal shenanigans, romance and ensuing tragedy of an affair between the English-born crown-princess of Denmark, and the German doctor of mad King Christian the seventh in the fateful summer of 1771, a year in Danish history books known as "The Hirschholm Summer". As you walk the royal alleyways you may begin to absorb the "snap" in the air, the vacuum left by the untimely disappearance of this thriving and decadent palace - maybe you'll even see a winter ghost!
Other things to note
This tour is all about imagination, listening to Heathers stories, taking great photos and enjoying the beautiful natural surroundings. It's called "Winter Ghosts", but it's a great visit all year.
