Sybergland seen from Villa Wheel-legs

Fritz Syberg ved Villa Vognhjul, efteråret 1937

The Municipality of Kerteminde has gotten inspired by painter Fritz Syberg’s little house on wheels, Villa Wheel-legs, for use at the new recreational nature preserve, Sybergland.

There are already lapwings, natterjack toads, orchids and white-tailed eagles in the newly created nature preserve, Sybergland, just to the north of where Syberg and his family made their home at Pilegården (Willow Farm) outside Kerteminde. And now, a reconstruction of Syberg’s spectacular painting blind, Villa Wheel-legs, is on its way.

So if it rains or is very windy during a hike at Sybergland, people will be able to take cover in Villa Wheel-legs and still keep an eye on the natural surroundings, the lakes and swamps of the newly created landscape. It was planned so as to re-establish the landscape as it was when Johannes Larsen and Fritz Syberg painted in the area.
