Visit the Lord of the Rings Ringmaker

Nelson is home to the Lord of the Rings famous ringmaker, Jens Hansen.

Visiting Nelson is always an absolute pleasure for its sense of relaxation and rejuvenation all rolled into one blissful, small seaside city.  The sun and sand alone are attractions enough, but add to that the beautiful gardens, long stretches of golden sand beach, renowned wineries, The World of Wearable Art and Classic Cars Museum and “The Ring” and you have the perfect stopover destination.  If you love the creative side of life you’ll find the city is full of fantastic original arts, with workshops to visit showcasing paintings, sculptures, glass, fashion and jewellery.

Leafy Trafalgar Street with its plethora of outdoor cafes culminates at the distinctive Nelson Cathedral, where time relaxing on the steps in the sunshine is never wasted.  Explore the phenomenal selection of dining options, from gourmet restaurants to popular local pubs.  With the beautiful Nelson scenery as a backdrop, dining outdoors is the perfect way to spend a balmy evening.

But just one block away from Trafalgar Street, perched on a very unassuming corner is a world famous creative gem.  It’s the workshop of Jens Hansen, “The Ringmaker” of the legendary ring from the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies.  A visit to Nelson is simply not complete without a visit to this internationally acclaimed ringmaker who specialises in diamond rings, The One Ring replicas and custom-made jewellery.

All choosen places were amazing. The accommodations were just perfect. Accept in the Rotorua, Twizel and Christchurch ones we´ve had beautiful views to amazing landscapes. Allthough we must admit, the Routorua and Christchurch Motels/B&B were absolut friendly housekeepers, very tidy and perfect located, so also very nice places to stay!!!
