Inge Adriansens Bænk - Forundringsparat

You almost feel like sitting down on the bench next to this beautiful lady and ask; hi Inge, what were the facts about King Christian II and his captivity at Sønderborg Castle

Awe-inspiring is a very apt term for Inge Adriansen (1944-2017) and Vibeke Fonnesberg has created a telling sculpture in bronze that embraces the culture and history of the border country.

In the 45 years that Inge Adriansen was employed at the Museum at Sønderborg Castle, she has researched and given lectures on everything from duchies to the Southern Jutland coffee table and has been the author and co-author of many books on local and cultural history.

Here sits the sculpture of this graceful lady on the bench - Inge Adriansen, Ph.d. in folklore science, museum inspector, knighted of the order of Dannebrog in 2006 and appointed adjunct professor at the university Syddansk Universitet in 2007, popular researcher and lecturer.

This great long-term effort was celebrated in 2022, when on 4 December the sculpture, which she herself approved, could be unveiled on the bench by the seafront in Sønderborg.

"With thanks and in respect for a lifelong research into the culture and history of the border country"
