  • Sorø Abbey Church is one of Denmark's oldest churches and is an amazing building. It embodies an equally amazing story, very beautifully executed and formidable within the Church itself.

  • An exciting place to visit with several connections to our hometown. It is here in Sorø Klosterkirke as Absalon vilar, who was then Archbishop of Lund was ärkesäte for the North and Denmark's ecclesiastical centre. Margareta Valdemarsdotters son Olof rests there too. He was buried first in the Lund Cathedral but his remains were later moved to Sorø. And it was here in Sorø that Peder Winstrup went to school. He became Denmark's last and the first bishop of Lund and rests now in the Northern Tower of Lund Cathedral. So the links between Sorø and Lund are many and for those who are interested in the history of Lund, it is interesting to make a visit in Sorø.
