This church is both typical (exterior architecture) and unique (fantastic frescoes inside), and well worth a visit. Other churches on the Klintevej include Fanefjord Kirke, Keldby, Borre and Magleby (Klintholm). Beware, the church closes down early (e.g. at 4:45PM in August)!

We were told this was one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in the area and I must agree. Lovely Frescoes inside this well maintained church originally dating from 1085! We also enjoyed the extensive cemetery with garden outside.

One of the three churches in the area famous for late mediaeval frescoes. Accessible by public bus or by car, also on the Camøno hiking path for walkers. Free admission, donations appreciated. Incidentally very good and clean public lavatories at the parking lot.

Do yourself the favour and stop the car and take 15-20 minutes to admire the frescoes in this 12th century church. That is what we did and we truly enjoyed it. They are up there with some of the best we have seen in Italy's...More

The church itself is very much like many other Danish churches, but once you get inside you'll notice the difference. The walls and ceilings are covered with newly restored paintings from the 14th century by the famous Elmelunde-Mesteren. A kind of Christian grafitti.

Stopped there on a weekday morning, and was the only one there. Quiet and amazing frescoes inside the church.

Beautiful chalk paintings! Very old church with a lot of history. If you are traveling to Møns Klint, stop by and take a peek inside.
