  • The Church has clear similarities with the Marienkirche in Lübeck. The red brick building's outer dimensions are matched by the Church's Interior, white Gothic arches. The gilded altarpiece (23 karat gold leaf) with Jesus ' ordeal, choir stalls, the old pulpit and baptismal font are also attractions. The crypt was recovered in the 1870 's and down there can be seen the remains of the oldest church. King Canute the Holy was murdered in the nearby St. Alban's Church, and has given its name to the Church. Right now, it is extremely difficult to not place known to run there in the car.

  • Discretion of the medieval church with great reverb. We were there for a Christmas concert, which was absolutely fantastic. We got goosebumps:-)

  • In connection with the flower festival 2016, there was Night-Church in Sct. Knuds. What an experience. It was pure goose bumps. Song and music then it disappeared completely into itself. Hope it will be repeated next year, it was great.
