Danmarks kyrka

Carl Linnaeus' home church

Danmarks kyrka (Danmark Church) can be seen from far and wide over the plains of Danmark. The oldest parts of the church date from the 1300s, but the church's high steeple in neo-Gothic style was added in 1889 after the original was destroyed by a lightning strike. The tower itself is from the 1400s.

The brick church is home to wall murals from two different ages. The older part of the church contains paintings by Johannes Rosenrod, while the younger vaults and walls were painted by Albertus Pictor.

The art in the chancel windows is by Julia Lüning and dates back to 1958. The center window depicts Jesus' birth in a flowery meadow surrounded by snake’s head fritillary and linnaea flowers, since Carl Linnaeus attended church here regularly from 1758-1778.
