Christchurch (Kristkirkken) Jul 26, 2012
There have been wooden churches on this spot since at least the 12th century, but they have become vctims to fire. The present church was built in 1592 which still makes it one of the oldest buildings in town. It is a late gothic beauty and highly decorated for being a protestant church. It has many artworks from the 17th century, especially pictures and epitaphs of rich merchants which gave some money to the church. It is interesting to find Latin, Danish and German inscriptions. Note also the carved 16th century pulpit and some old carvings on the benches. The spire has an interesting shape and wooden clock faces painted in several colours. During the week, the church is open for visitors between 1000 and 1600.
