... and Kronhuset opened the gates

It was not completely unexpectedly full, when Historieverket, together with Higab and Göteborg Wind Orchestra, opened for the Culture Night in the Kronhus Quarter.

Rikssalen, where Karl X called the states to Parliament 1659, fills quickly. Gothenburg Wind Orchestra plays, the artist Eva Wirén paints.

The painting grows up with the music.
Eve gets help.

Fashion show in the cafe on the second floor. Here's a glimpse of the 1600s fashion.

... and now the 1700s steps in.

In the cultural night outside the horses come as promised.

An 1700-century family is being photographed.

In one of the garrets, machinery from the 1600s is demonstrated.

Violinist Thomas Lindström waits, for the evening dressed in the form of the historical figure Father Berg. He claims to be searching for the famous poet Carl Michael Bellman, who has disappeared from Stockholm under unclear circumstances.

Father Berg speaks about the keys, gives samples and seems to be particularly fond of F-Minor.

On another wind, 1700's artist Jonas Comba sketches a new painting. (The one that hangs for the door shows Kungsporten as it was supposed to have looked when Gothenburg was a fortified city surrounded by wall and moat.)

After contributory brush strokes from various visitors, Eva Wirén's artwork is completed.

The final show is under preparation in front of Kronhuset.

It is the art-firework group Pyrox.

They call the show "A fire is burning".

With this, Kulturnatta at Kronuset is over, for this time,

Kulturnatta at Kronhuset - a feast for all five senses

Göteborg Wind Orchestra performs in a way they have never done before. Photo: Johan Palmborg

At Kulturnatta 19 October, you can fully experience Kronhuset and it's environment. The quarter will be awakened through all five senses. Music, exhibitions, flavors, smells, touch. From 17: 00 - 22: 00.

Eva Wirén

Among other things, painting is taking place in the Kronhusets Rikssal, Gothenburg's historic heart. Sprung out of the feeling and an inner world, says the artist Eva Wirén who leads the country. Do you want to try to awaken your senses? With Eve's help, you can enter the circle with artists and create your own space with the help of intuition and ancient techniques.

During the painting Göteborg Wind Orchestra in a way it never done before. No stands, no scene, except the one you're on. At the same time, from the crown's winds, tones are heard that attract a world that has stood still for hundreds of years. Historieverket provides guided tours.

A place for anxiety - maybe reconciliation

Too nice to be a court?

Gothenburg City Hall - Asplund's extension. One critic said that it looked more like a southern bathing house than a court, meaning that since people here were anxiously waiting for their judgment, the character should be more serious, heavier, more closed. Gunnar Asplund's intention was consciously the opposite. Friendly sunny light, openness, flowers, human. An everyday tone and intimacy that might lead from anxiety to reconciliation. Do you want to experience the feeling? We provide guided tours Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Go here for times and bookings.

The premier show of the City Hall's big media was in place

In one of the courts. Photographer Jenny Ingemarsson at work, Historieverket's Sven Hagnell, Anna Jolfors, Isabel Lagos and Daniel Bäcklund at the justice stage.

In the premiere, GP and SR received a tour of the famous building. Radio Hasse Andersson broadcasted in the morning in P4 Gothenburg. What the report Jan Andersson and the photographer Jenny Ingemarsson received is soon to be seen in Göteborgsposten.

The reason for the attention is that there have been no regular public views of the City Hall earlier, despite great interest both in Sweden and abroad. Now, Historieverket, in collaboration with Higab, will arrange guided tours twice a week, until the twenty-first of December, at the beginning. Already there have been requests from other countries.

The tour goes through the City Hall's extension from 1936, signed by internationally acclaimed architect Gunnar Asplund, counted as a pioneer for functionalism.

For information and times and bookings, go here.

Welcome to the City Hall - guided tours of Gothenburg's most famous building

Historieverket's guide Daniel Bäcklund shows old drawings in one of the court rooms.

The 11 September starts the History Agency guided views of Asplundian extension of Gothenburg City Hall at Gustaf Adolfs Torg. Perhaps not the most famous building among the Gothenburgs but probably the most admired internationally.

The views made in collaboration with Higab have already started with, among other things, a class of art students who had a walking tour with the History Agency's guide Daniel Bäcklund, dressed in an original 30 century costume. The cost of the costume is that the interesting part of the City Hall was built just in the 30 century. A functionalist addition, designed by the internationally acclaimed architect Gunnar Asplund, one of the pioneers for functionalism, including major works such as Stockholm City Library in Vasastaden, among the merits.

There is much to be found in Asplund's creation. The light and the open welcoming surfaces, that a functionalist space must not be square. A door must not be flat. Asplund's ideas go down to detail, with smart practical solutions to facilitate the work in the premises that served as court until 2010, when the Legal Center took over the business.

Guided tours on Tuesdays at 10: 00 and Thursdays 18: 00.

1700s-tumult in Halden!

Ranch owner Rahmberg in the lead

The 300 Anniversary of Karl XII's death was celebrated in Norway during the weekend, at Fredriksstens fortress in Halden, a small town at Idefjorden, on the border with Sweden. The question is, why was rancher Bo Rahmberg from Veddige there?

Historieverket took a time trip from Gothenburg to 1718 in Halden, where it was said that Karl XII would have a bullet through his head. The trip did not start well. Even before the border attacked heavy rainforests that darkened the sky and, in combination with an erroneous decision in a crossroads, caused the reported military parade to be missed. Finally, at least the town square was found, where some of the shattered Carolines were found. Despite the loss of the king, they were in good mood, claiming that they had not really lost the battle of the fortress. "We simply lost the lust." They came from Norrtälje.

On the slope towards the fortress were several campsites with Karolinian soldiers and accompanying women but only a camp with the red-dressed enemy, which was also abandoned. The numerical superiority of the carolines was therefore striking. Quirky.

Somewhat later, the time turned back to 1716, when Karl XII lived alive, made another attempt to subjugate the Norwegians. Street rides at the square broke out and that was when rancher Rahmberg from Veddige appeared. He went to the main joints of the karolins and knocked on the battle drum, yes he is drummer too. We thought of the nice hamburgers we had bought from him at the Veddige Ranch just a few weeks earlier. In peace time. He passed without seeing us. Immediately behind, Historieverkets Lars-Göran marched in the blue-colored karolin cap, concentrated in himself - by the time we saw him, he was a simple 1700-speaking printer at the Kronhuset in Gothenburg. It was too much. We went home. On the way we thought about 1719 when the Norwegian-Danish commander Tordenskjold would make an attempt to enter the Gothenburg fortress. Our hometown. What shall we find then?

Historical fashion show with military touch

It rained and blew the second historic camp day in Kronhus Park. But we are not made of butter! The adventures defied the weather. Here are some pictures from the fashion show that showed how people looked, from 1600 numbers to M59.

In the 1600s. Pretty free, but important to show social class.
1600s and early 1700s pretzel bakers
Young karoliner with ladies
Clearly in the 1700s. Better order.
1700s' hat.
Wealthy woman in th XNUMXs.
A maid
Almost today. To the right, in the early 1900s and still decorative. On the left the way to M59, the modern functional uniform that we elderly had the honor to bear under the military duty.

Those who show off the clothes are non-profit historical associations who mostly know why it looked like it did, and gladly tells about it. On Sunday there is a chance to meet them and find out about the details. The camp in Kronhus Park is open from 12 to 16.
