800 years of Denmark's church history on display for you in Denmark’s longest church. Among the treasures are the many fascinating frescos, the triptych from 1479, and one of Denmark's most impressive baroque monuments commemorating landowner and baron Constantin Marselis.
Church of Our Lady (Vor Frue Kirke)
In the Church of Our Lady you can experience more than 1,000 years of history in its three beautiful churches: the Crypt Church, the Abbey Church, and the Church of Our Lady. The crypt under the church houses a piece of sensational history – Scandinavia's oldest vaulted crypt dating back to approx. 1060, forgotten and found again by coincidence. And in the cloister garth you can still sense the footsteps of the chanting Dominican monks.
