    The sculpture stands at Kerteminde's Ny Kirkegård, where it was unveiled in connection with the new construction of Kirkegårds Allé in April 2014.

    "The gate" is a symbol of transition and transformation, but there are many layers of interpretation in it, Per Ahlmann told Fyens Stiftstidende. – It's probably a lot about what you yourself are already filled with – for some it's very nature, for others very physical, says Per Ahlmann, who made the sculpture after meeting cemetery manager Ulrik Christiansen and on the basis of a project, the potter had the sketches lying around.

    Per Ahlmann has made one other sculpture for a cemetery, and he has also made individual tombstones in ceramics. – It's quite special. I must have made about 15 ceramic gravestones, which are around the country. But it's something I'm working on developing - because the ceramics give me the opportunity to spend more time on design and the colours. And it is very special to be involved, says the artist.

    Artist Per Ahlmann

    Per Ahlmann, born 1965, can be described as a ceramic sculptor who operates in very close connection with his material. He produces works that combine the concrete with the abstract – sculptures that are simply sculpture.

    Per Ahlmann graduated from Denmark's Design School in 1995 and throughout his career has worked towards his characteristic expression, which unites concrete with abstract, material with concept and craftsmanship with art.

    According to Per Ahlmann, a sculpture is successful when it seems like a reproduction of something you should recognize, but is nevertheless completely abstract. The fact that the sculpture can evoke this sensation is based, among other things, on a form of obviousness which must be present in the juxtaposition and transitions between the sculpture's sub-elements. Furthermore, it is a distinctive feature of Ahlmann that it is specifically the potential of ceramics as a sculptural material that drives him.

    On the Møllebakken next to the Johannes Larsen Museum towers Svanemøllen that functions as a symbol of Kerteminde. It has its name after the weather cock - a beautiful swan situated on the top of the mill.

    The mill was built in 1853 and was - in the possession of the artist Johannes Larsen - working until the nineteen fifties. During the latest years the mill has undergone a thorough restoration that has made it functional again.

    Lundsgaard Gods

    1.38 km

    Over the past 20 years, the current estate owner couple – Vini and Rudolf Iuel – have awakened the estate from its Sleeping Beauty slumber. Together, they have made Lundsgaard a beacon both when it comes to cultural and nature experiences. So what Lundsgaard represents today is a modern take on how the estates can play an important role. Both as one of the local community's key players - and as a meeting point for ecologists, musicians, artists, researchers and creative spirits from all over the country. Often the whole world.

    Pioneer spirit and proud traditions

    The very special Lundsgaard spirit has arisen in the field of tension between Vini and Rudolf's interests and life experiences. Vini is a jazz singer, composer and creative director of the cultural center Anexet, which the couple has set up in the estate's former breeding buildings. She has previously lived in Brazil and New York. Rudolf was born and raised in Lundsgaard, descended from the naval hero Niels Iuel. In 1991, he took over responsibility for agriculture and forestry, which they changed to organic in 2008.

    With its 2,000m2, the annexed cultural center consists of a large number of rooms with very different sizes and moods in addition to the concert hall. So you can always find the perfect setting for your meetings, parties or conferences. The large concert hall, the high-ceilinged gallery, the beautiful harvest festival hall, the cozy barroom, the rustic barn for more informal events and long table dinners, the two cozy cafes... or a mixture of it all. Among the recurring events is one of the country's finest chamber music festivals, summer festival, September jazz festival.

    The breath of history

    Lundgaard's history stretches all the way back to the 13th century, when a small castle complex was built in Storskoven and the 'farm by the forest', Lundsgaard, is mentioned for the first time in 1484 in the written source material. The current beautiful white Rococo main building was built by Jens Iuel in 1765.

    The large stud farm facility was designed by the architect August Klein, who is also the man behind the beautiful barn and Herskabsstalden. It was built as a manager's residence for Agnes Henningsen's father. So here the writer and feminist, who later became the mother of PH, spent a large part of her childhood. It is nicely described in the 1st volume of her memoirs: Let Gang på Jorden and is also depicted in the Poet's Route for Agnes Henningsen, which will be inaugurated in May 2022 and which takes guests through Lundsgaard's forests.

    Around 1880, a 'constitution hill' was built in the park, where people gathered from near and far on Constitution Day. For over 100 years, it was completely overgrown, but in 2019 Vini and Rudolf woke it up from Sleeping Beauty, so that it has once again become the meeting point for the annual constitutional celebrations.

    In the early 1900s, Lundsgaard Manor was a gathering place for artists and writers whom the 'theatre count' Frits Ahlefeldt-Laurvigs invited to both theater and concerts on the special 'theatre squares' he created in the middle of the woods.

    In front of the main building, he set up a large stone on which he engraved: "This corner of the world smiles at me more than any other". That's how most people still feel when they visit Lundsgaard Gods. Because here you intuitively let the joy of life and the spirit grow.


    Lundsgaard Gods has opened its own café, Café Frits. See the opening hours at Café Frits on Lundsgaard Gods' website.

    Good walking routes in the area around the estate

    The scenic areas around Lundsgaard Gods are ideal for walks. See more at the links below.

    On the Accident Patient Association's website, you can e.g. see a map of good walking routes and a video that shows the access options for e.g. people with reduced mobility.

    The Vikingmuseum Ladby

    2.86 km

    At the Viking Museum Ladby by Kerteminde Fjord you can step inside Denmark's oldest royal tomb. Here, a nameless king was laid to rest in his Viking ship more than 1,000 years ago. The museum contains Denmark's only ship grave from the Viking Age – an attraction of international format. The Ladby ship is atmospherically displayed as a burial chamber in a rebuilt burial mound exactly on the spot where it was found in 1935. Archaeological investigations have established that the Viking ship was pulled up on land around the year 925, where the dead king was buried in the ship with his horses, dogs, weapons and other valuable goods.


    Viking Museum Ladby's main attraction is the Ladby king's Viking ship grave; but is also a museum for the entire East Funen Viking Country. The exhibition "Ladbykongens Verden" tells about the Viking Age in a broad and general way. With the help of exhibited finds, films and artistic renderings of Viking Age East Funen, you can explore the world and daily life that the King of Ladby was a part of. In the "Vikings' Wardrobe", both children and adults can try dressing up in Viking clothes. Everywhere in the exhibitions you will also find many unique local metal detector finds that tell about people and gods in the Viking Age in gold, silver and bronze. The Ladby king's funeral is presented in the exhibition "King and Warrior". Here you can experience the illusion of being present on the day when the dead Viking king was laid to rest in his ship, ready for the voyage to the beyond. A full-size replica of the Ladby ship, recreated Vikings, dead horses and grave goods can be seen next to display cases with the original items from the grave. Furthermore, in the exhibition you can see the unique Ladby Tapestry – a seven-metre long embroidered tapestry inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry from Normandy. Here the story of the death of the King of Ladby and the discovery of his grave 1000 years later is conveyed - in colorful pictures.

    The Ladby Dragon

    All summer long, you can experience the reconstructed Viking ship, the Ladbydragen, lying and rocking in the fjord below the burial mound. Exactly where the original ship was pulled ashore over 1,000 years ago. Read much more about the shipwreck, the Ladby dragon, the Ladby tapestry and much more on the Viking Museum Ladby's website.

    Experiences all year round

    Throughout the year, the museum's visitors can experience an exciting program with current lectures about the Viking Age, tours about the King of Ladby and the Viking Age, as well as lots of Viking activities for children and adults. During the school holidays, an exciting program of Viking activities is offered. Depending on the time of year, visitors of all ages can try their hand at archaeology, archery, javelin throwing, Viking combat, ceramics, woodworking, etc. accompanied by the museum's skilled and knowledgeable mediators. All year round there are also treasure hunts for children throughout the museum.

    The museum shop

    In the Viking Museum Ladby's museum shop, you can buy a wide range of delicious items with the Viking Age as their theme. The shop offers a large selection of jewellery, mead, books, toys and other Viking souvenirs. It is also possible to buy coffee, cocoa, soft drinks, ice cream and cakes, which can be enjoyed in the small café area or in the museum's cozy courtyard.

    Access conditions and availability

    Both the museum building and the mound with the Viking ship grave are handicapped-friendly with ramps, no high door steps and, in the case of the museum building, an elevator. The trip from the parking lot in front of the museum to the museum building as well as the trip from the latter to the hill (approx. 300 m) can be challenging due to gravel and dirt paths, respectively, which by their nature are not 100% level. However, there are benches along the way, so it is possible to take a break from the walk.

    In the basement of the museum building there is a toilet which is suitable for the disabled. The basement is easily accessible by elevator.

    There is free entry for disabled helpers who visit the museum during working hours.

    Dogs are welcome on a leash in the museum's outdoor area.

    The museum has a wheelchair that can be borrowed.

    Ulriksholm Castle

    6.39 km

    The history of Ulriksholm Castle

    In 1616, King Christian the 4th bought the main manor Skinnerup at the bottom of Kerteminde Nor. In 1632, the king decided to build new stately buildings that were to serve as a residence for the illegitimate king's son, Ulrik Christian Gyldenløve, who was then 2 years old. Therefore, the castle's name was changed to Ulriksholm.

    After Christian the 4th died, his mistress and mother of Ulrik Christian Gyldenløve, Vibeke Kruse, fell out of favor. Upon her death, Vibeke Kruse was buried on a poor farm outside Copenhagen's city walls. However, Ulrik Christian Gyldenløve made sure to take his mother's body to Kølstrup Church. He himself died at the age of just 28 after a valiant effort in the Swedish War.

    Ulriksholm Castle today

    The castle is today privately owned. There is no public access to the castle or garden, except for the castle's open garden events and when the castle is visited by Herregårdsspillene.
