In 1992, a large number of beautiful medieval frescoes was disclosed in the aisle of Nibe Church. St. George and his tale of sufferings is one of many stories of the frescoes. The frescoes are made by two different workshops, viz. the "Sæby Workshop" and the "Sebber Workshop".
Nibe Church was built in the 1400s, originally as an annex to Vokslev. Nibe Church has since gone through an extensive restoration from 1989-1996 and appears as an extremely bright and beautiful building today. The restoration included the church building as well as the church.
The nave of Nibe Church is one of the most peculiar and distinctive naves in Denmark, as it is a herring fishing boat symbolizing the original prosperity of Nibe, due to the herring fishery at the Limfjord.
