Overview
More
This church was the first in the town and build as a Late Romanesque/Early Gothic red brick building, which must have been begun shortly before 1250. It took its present appearance as a result of substantial rebuilding in the latter half of 19th century. Today it mainly takes the form of a Late Gothic monument with three equally large and equally tall aisles. But at its core is an interesting Early Gothic nave, a hall church, whose two aisles correspond to the present central aisle and north side aisle. In 1855 the Late Romanesque chancel section was removed and a new chancel was built 3 meters to the south. In 1887-88 the tower was replaced by the existing Neo-Gothic tower. In the north chapel, during the construction in the fifteenth century, 23 skulls were embedded in a ‘belt’ in the wall 3-4 meters above ground level. The embedding of skulls is known from other churches, but nowhere in Denmark in as large a number as in Vejle.
