Are there any Nisser at “Frederiksborg slot” this Christmas?



Nicely placed in the fountain, which for the moment are covered with branches from pine trees instead of water. He has a lamp in his hand, – ready to guide you in the dark. A very friendly Nisse, – but of course, he is living at a castle. Nothing to complain about.

This “Neptun fountain” is by the way a copy, because the original fountain was stolen by Swedish troops in 1659…quite remarkable it is, stealing a fountain of this size. Perhaps this Nisse in reality is more likely a guard nisse…

I looked for more Nisser and found a box with some made out of cones. I don´t know their origin, they might be some of my late mothers Christmas ornaments. Or perhaps they came all by themself, who knows.

Time to look at some “Nisser”. They seem to be in good mood, lets hope it will last.

julebog om nisser
