As said before we would like to go to either Tivoli or Lejre Forsøgscenter if the weather did hold and as it actually did, we decided to go to Lejre Forsøgscenter because this would be our last chance to go there in the autumn as they close for this season later today.
Lejre Forsøgscenter (in English: Lejre Experimental Center) is an open-air park where 10.000 years of Danish history is brought to life by reconstructions of ancient living environments, from a Stone Age camp to the 19th century-farm cottages. Besides that the park is blessed with an unique nature as the pictures here show.
Here I will bring you some of the many pictures I took. I’m very happy with the pictures but the small thumbnails here doesn’t do the pictures justest so please click on them to view them in full size !
Well here we are… just inside by the first lake and were met by those beautiful colors.
Then we went to see how the wild boars babies were doing. They were grown quite a big since last time we were here and they didn’t have the speed stripes (as we call them) anymore.
Close by were some of the more normal farm animals.
Besides the beautiful country site we did see a few flowers too.
We went to the field were we last time saw a lot of goats but they were not there. But near by we did find two patting goats that was quite sweet.
After a little walk we came out on the big open field and discovered that the gute sheeps was here today.
We even had a chance to say hi to the big old male sheep Johannes (the one with the big horns). We know his name as we were here in the spring on a tour with a nature guide and he introduced us for Johannes.
Here some great views over the big open field…
Here we are down by the lake just before we enter the forest. Just caught a shot of a flock of birds. I guess they will be heading south very soon.
Those views are just unbelievable..
Inside the forest and a peak out of the Lejre Forsøgscenter area onto farmers land.
More inside the forest and few views over some of the lakes.
Here we have a view from the small Stone Age village. I really like the photo at the right. You can see two small boats made from tree trunks at both sides of the jetty.
A few more from inside the forest.
Here a nice big mushroom.
I just love this old crooked tree just by the sacrifice bog, it’s amazing how it’s shaped. After that we entered the Iron Age village, you can see a little of one of the houses on the right picture.
Some more shuts from inside the Iron Age village. I’m more into taking picture of the nature but I guess we have to come back and take pictures of the houses, tools etc. some day.
Just outside the village with the small lake between us and the village.
And some more views….
I really like how the tree reflects in the pond. I guess that’s why I take this picture every time we go here
Well that was more or less it, now we are back where we started.
I think you see, just by looking at the pictures, that we had a very nice day at Lejre Forsøgscenter !
