A very traditional Danish church with some absolutely amazing fresco's. The (new) organ is, on the other hand, ridiculous ugly and has no contextual link.

This church is both typical (exterior architecture) and unique (fantastic frescoes inside), and well worth a visit. Other churches on the Klintevej include Fanefjord Kirke, Keldby, Borre and Magleby (Klintholm). Beware, the church closes down early (e.g. at 4:45PM in August)!

The church locate in the small village is worth a visit for its wall paintings. Allthough the motives are religuos some of them are really weird with violence (killing of small children) half-porn (small naked teenage girls) and a strange modern touch to these very...More

We were told this was one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in the area and I must agree. Lovely Frescoes inside this well maintained church originally dating from 1085! We also enjoyed the extensive cemetery with garden outside.

Elmelunde Church is most likely the oldest stone church in the island of Møn, perhaps built in the 11th century AD. The Elmelunde Master is the name given to the nameless 16th-century artist who painted the frescoes in the churches of Elmelunde, Fanefjord and Keldby...More

One of the three churches in the area famous for late mediaeval frescoes. Accessible by public bus or by car, also on the Camøno hiking path for walkers. Free admission, donations appreciated. Incidentally very good and clean public lavatories at the parking lot.

Do yourself the favour and stop the car and take 15-20 minutes to admire the frescoes in this 12th century church. That is what we did and we truly enjoyed it. They are up there with some of the best we have seen in Italy's...More

The church itself is very much like many other Danish churches, but once you get inside you'll notice the difference. The walls and ceilings are covered with newly restored paintings from the 14th century by the famous Elmelunde-Mesteren. A kind of Christian grafitti.

Stopped there on a weekday morning, and was the only one there. Quiet and amazing frescoes inside the church.
