Fantastic to experience a gorgeous byzantine inspired Cathedral in a relative small Danish town. Very nice photo exhibition explaining the influence of Constantinople and the relationship with Danish culture.

Brodremenighedens Kirke

Reviewed By Trainbleu - Brussels

Both outside and inside, the historic church of the Moravian Brethren (‘Brodremenighedens Kirke’ in Danish) didn’t resemble any of the churches we have ever seen and that made it particularly interesting. Viewed from the outside, it’s a very simple yellow stone building with a black tiled roof. The central part, crowned by a tiny copper-clad clock tower, dates from 1776, the symmetrical gabled wings were added in 1796.
The inside is even more surprising and reflects the simplicity advocated by the brethren community: a huge hall with wooden floors, white ceilings, white walls, simple white wooden benches. No altar, no pulpit, no decoration or colour, apart from a green cloth with the church’s emblem, the Lamb of God carrying the flag of victory. We found it quite beautiful. We regretted not to find the usual informative leaflet though.
It is interesting to compare this church with the parish church (‘Tyrstrup Kirke’, reviewed elsewhere), just a short walk along Haderslevvej to the south of Christiansfeld centre.

Christiansfeld Centret

Reviewed By AoifeCuRua - Hume, Virginia

Christiansfeld is a beautiful and interesting historic town west of Copenhagen. It's a recent addition to Denmark's limited list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The small museum is very informative - mostly text with photos about the history of the Moravian church in the area and of course about the town itself. The architecture is simple but lovely, and many of the original buildings are intact. It's unfortunate that more of them are not open to the public, but the lovely church hall is worth the trip all by itself. Don't forget to try the famous honey cakes, still made from the original 18th century recipe.

Haderslev Dampark

Reviewed By Line L - Haderslev, Denmark

Nice park with two great Playgrounds. Also nice for walking, and you can rent a water cycle.
There is a kiosk in the park, where you can buy ice creams and sausages.
The park is very well maintained, and is only 50 meters from the pedestrian zone. You find the library next to the park, where there is toilets (and they are better than the toilets in the park).
A nice visit all year round.

Take the day off and spend a day in the forrest at Torning Mill. The history at the old electric factory, the walks under the tree tops, enjoying some of the oldest trees in Denmark and bring your lunch basket. Also watch the deer and the birds life at Hinde Made. Just superb.

Tyrstrup Kirke

Reviewed By Trainbleu - Brussels

When visiting the Moravian brethren’s site at Christiansfeld, it is worthwhile to have a look at Tyrstrup parish church, if only for the striking contrast with the brethren’s church hall. It’s only a short walk to the south along Haderslevvej. Today the yellow-brick church seems rather too big for a rural village but when the brethren’s community was founded in 1773 the population in the parish also increased and the existing church became too small. It was demolished and replaced by a bigger church in Gothic Revival style in 1862. Architect was Laurits Albert Winstrup (1815-1889), who built or rebuilt a large number of churches. Only the baptismal font and a Romanesque portal (now the outer gate) of the old church were preserved. Compared to the sleek, all-white interior of the brethren’s church, Tyrstrup church is more colourful and more ornate, but they are both sober.

Gram Slot

Reviewed By Lillemusen - Stockholm, Sweden

The castle is not as glorious and as grand as many others, but it still is a nice building. It is not allowed to enter, so walk in the park is free. You can enjoy the garden and bask in the sun. Nice experience. A replica of a whale skeleton is just across the castle and relatively close is Gram Clay Pit Museum.

Museum Soenderjylland, Gram Clay Pit

The department of Natural History and Palaeontology in Museum Soenderjylland is putting 10 million year old fossils from the clay pit of Gram on display. The clay in the old pit is actually an old sea bottom, where you can find a lot of fossils. The museum is inviting you to participate in finding whale bones, sharks teeth, shells of molluscs, seaurchins and perhaps a unique find that nobody else has found before. This happens almost every year. You can borrow digging tools and wellies at the museum, if you don't bring your own. A very nice and exciting activity for all ages. Find us on Facebook

Reviewed By Lillemusen - Stockholm, Sweden

This smallish museum offers a lot, and not only if you are a Danish speaking person - everything is in Danish, German and English, there are interesting facts for you to find out and amazing fossils to admire. Microscopes are available and you can examine the fossils in the rocks and have fun with them. A special treat for children is probably search for own fossils in a nearby clay pit (tools and boots available, and a place to wash yourself after as well, though it must be very crowded if there are many archaeologist working in the mud)! The walk around the museum was great as well, with bits of text about evolution carefully dispersed along the path. Ample free parking is available. The restaurant was closed at the time we arrived (the museum closes at 17 this time of the year, but you can fairly quickly finish with what is inside and then enjoy yourself outside) so we did not get to test it. Gift shop offers all sorts of small things, most of which are children oriented, but adults can chose their favourites as well. All in all ,we recommend!

from the point of view of a walker. Nice view, clean, enough places to eat, supermarket close enough to buy some fruits and eat on the bench. If you are interested in a tour along the fjord, check the time table available on one of the boards.
