Description

The solid oak door leading from the porch into the church is from 1531 and is decorated with scroll-work and the coat of arms of Canon Jørgen Samsing.

The magnificent late-15th-century altarpiece is also worthy of note. Originally a triptych, it is thought to have been used as a chapel altar in Aarhus Cathedral. The frescoes are from 1492.

Open Monday to Thursday from 9am to 1pm + additional on application to the church verger.

The oldest sections of this church are the chancel and nave, which are from the Romanesque period. The tower and porch are late medieval. The porch contains a Romanesque grave stone decorated with a cross, sun, moon and animal figures.
