Very cool old church built on the foundations of an older Viking church. It is a relatively plain building, but due to the limestone used in construction has vaults that naturally mummified those buried beneath the church. You can check the vault on Saturdays.Recommended for:History Buffs

Not for the faint-hearted! The crypt is open to visitors. It contains numerous half opened and opened coffins in which the bodies have become mummified due to the extreme dryness of the conditions down there (it doesn't smell very nice by the way). When I was a child you were urged to "shake hands with the mummy". This no longer happens (possibly because the arm fell off).
