oak forest castle

A Danish postcrosser named Rita took this photo of Egeskov (Oak Forest) Castle on the Danish island of Funen and turned it into a postcard. She also provided commentary: An entire oak forest was supposedly cleared for the castle, more than 450 years old, to be built. That forest gave its name to the castle. A small wooden doll is on the roof of the castle. Legend has it that if that doll is ever removed, on Christmas Eve the castle will disappear into the lake it borders.
