The Jelling Runic Stones and burial Mounds,

a UNESCO World Heritage site in Denmark by Hans Nyberg

The small village Jelling in the middle of Jutland was once the home of the first king of Denmark Gorm the Old. It is claimed that he became the Danish king in 899.

All the dynasties who have reigned Denmark descend from him in straight line. Including our present Queen Margrethe II

Gorm raised the small runic stone in memorial of his wife Thyre.

The inscription says: Gorm made this monument in memory of Thyre his wife on the back is for the first time the name Denmark mentioned.

The large stone was raised by Harald Bluetooth the son of Gorm.

He is known as the king who introduced christianity in Denmark.

The inscription says:

Harald king executes these sepulchral monuments after Gorm, his father and Thyra, his mother. The Harald who won the whole of Denmark and Norway and turned the Danes to Christianity.

The story about this place, the Mounds, the Stones and the Church can not be told in a few words.

Read more about it at History of Jelling and at the museum

Matterhorn - Zermatt Switzerland

QTVR by Matthias Taugwalder Zermatt360.ch

Matterhorn 4478 m high, is not the highest mountain in Switzerland but it is probably the most famous and most popular among climbers. On days with good weather from July to Sept. more than 200 climb Matterhorn each day trying to reach the summit. The most popular route is the Hörnli Ridge which you see in the panorama.

On July 15 a rockslide occurred and a large part of the ridge fell down along the side of the mountain. Nobody was injured but 70 climbers who where on the mountain had to be rescued.

The rockslide occurred because of the high temperatures this summer. The access to the mountain was closed for a week.

The panorama was made one week later on July 19 when the mountain was reopened. It is made at 3280 meters of altitude right above the "Hörnli hut" . You can see the place of the rockslide as a reddish part of the ridge.

The first ascent of Matterhorn took place on July 14, 1865 by the British Edward Whymper, Lord Francis Douglas, Reverend Charles Hudson, Robert Hadow, Michel Croz and the two guides of Zermatt Peter Taugwalder father and son. On the descent there was an accident where 4 of the 7 crew members died. Only Whymper and the two Taugwalders survived.

Matthias Taugwalder who made this beautiful panorama is the descendant from the two guides. Peter Taugwalder was his great great great grandfather. Matthias Taugwalder runs the website Holidaynet with tourist information from the area of Zermatt.
