Nordborg Church

Medieval church dating from approx. 1250. The south chapel with the interesting frescoes is added approx. 1500. The north chapel is built 1686 and reconstructed 1785. The tower at the south chapel is built 1789. Porch, sacristy and stair tower is built in 1881-82.

The Duke to Nordborg Castle built a chapel in 1700 at the east end of the church. This chapel is the final resting place for the ducal families and their coffins are still standing in the room behind the altar. If the wooden door is closed you may open it and look through the grated door at the coffins, a list of who is laying in the coffins is found on the wooden door.

The pulpit, carved by Jørgen Ringnis is from 1626. The crucifix in the choir arc dates from approx. 1500. The altar made in 1655 is presumably from Flensburg.

The church is normally open during the mentioned times or by appointment.
