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.

Stave church interior

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.

Viking Axes

A little different than yesterday’s viking axes, today’s photo is from Denmark. Inside the Moesgård Museum on Jutland you can find these beauties. The museum is most famous for its bog body known as Grauballe Man. I’ll have to get photos of him up on here soon.
