Stave Church near Århus (Moesgård Museum)

Moesgaard Museum – Stave Church – Århus, Denmark

One day, while sightseeing in Århus, Denmark, I rode the bus down to Højbjerg to check out the stave church. I knew what a stave church was supposed to look like from playing the “Age of Mythology” computer game so I was a bit disappointed to find this one which looked nothing like my expectations.

None of the original Viking churches have survived in Denmark. This one is a reconstruction done in the 1990s. The bell tower next to the church was completed in 2004.
