The guest rooms of Glaumbær

Posted on March 17, 2009 by

The two rooms by the entrance of the Glaumbær farm are reserved for guests and are internally covered of wood. In the one on the left, there are many pictures that reproduce the old officers of this area and their families: they are represented in serious – almost grim portraits.

This look may be explained by the belief, still alive, that smiling during a meeting is silly. The ancestors could have their picture taken only once in their lifetime, they could not stand to give a not serious impression of themselves. That’s also the reason why in shops or pubs you rarely see people smiling, but this doesn’t mean rudeness.

Going on along the corridor, you’ll meet a staircase that goes up to an attic that stands exactly above the two guest rooms.
