Thanks Akira
Great that you found it Hans - I wanted to post this one but then it slipped my mind. It might also fit in nicely in Akira's "rubber neck" topic  :)

A medeval church in Kalundborg, Denmark, with five towers - which I understand is somewhat unique in the world - representing the imagination of "The heavenly Jerusalem as a fortified city with 5 towers" - (assumed to be) started by Esben Snare around 1170 and finished by his daughter in 1220.

Great images in this interesting thread!
Great lines, Lars.  A very old church then?  It looks a bit modern, from this POV.

I have an impression that the Nordic churches are quite unique in their designs.  Thank you for sharing!

Thanks Akira and John,
I've looked up some extra info - this church is unique even in nothern europe with Tournai cathedral in Belgium having similarities.
The roofs burned in 1314 and the original roof/tower top constructions are unknown. The mid tower crashed in 1827 apparently due to excavations inside the church - after/during 45 years it was rebuild and restorations was apparantly also done. Apart from that I havent found anything indicating the current architecture should be of more modern origin than around 1220/1230 - additional buildings like chapel, rectory dating 1400/1500.

I've attached different views.

Thanks for the extra images,  Lars.  Yes this looks more medieval ;)  More like a castle. Unique church.

Lars, thank you for the extra research and the images.  The entire church including the brick fence looks majestic.
