Vår Frue kirke (Our Lady Church), springtime view, south side and east end. The east (right) part – comprising the present choir and half the nave – is identical to the Younger (Virgin) Mary Church built around 1200. The rest of the church was built in the 1600s and 1700s, the tower in 1739. This church has 'survived' five fires, the last one in 1708. Prior to its 800 years official anniversary in 2007 the church has been renovated. From then on the church is permanently open (except after twelve week nights) so that you can enter to worship your God, chat with friends, or whatever you prefer. The church even contains a small 'café' where coffee and waffles and sweet buns are served.

Winter light – the 'mirror' on the ground is wet ice (take care!).
