The church, which dates from the Middle Ages has particularly well preserved frescos. In the churchyard, you can meet (albeit posthumously!), one of the craftsmen who worked on this church and many others. He is depicted with a long coat with pointed hood, surrounded by blacksmith tools and a timber axe and the fruits of his labour, part of the church wall and church bell.
Both entries to the church have columns and decorations above the door, to the North, Christ and two birds, to the South, lions and eagles. The church itself is a perfect example of the Middle Ages in around the year 1500, with frescos of biblical characters, the devil and wild men. The late gothic paintings were painted over in around 1550 and if you lean back and look hard, you can spot small faces hidden in the leafwork.
To the left, behind the altar is a noblewoman playing cards. According to one local legend, the church was paid for from winnings in a card game. Another legend claims that the figure is the lady of Vinderslevholm, in the process of her favourite pastime.
Open all year round from dawn to dusk.
