Damsholte Kirke – church of Damsholte

Posted by

There are many old churches spread across the island of Møn. One of the younger churches is Damsholte Kirke (kirke means church) it was built in 1743. The churches on the island of Møn stay open during the day so if you arrive not too late in the day you can go inside – I guess they close the door around 3 in the afternoon so you need to be there before the gate is closed.

The church is fairly simple because of the era it was built during. One interesting fact is the fact there is actually two stories in the church so some of the guest could be upstairs. It is good to head upstairs to get a view of the church from above which gives a different dimension.

Outside the church is a little chapel which was built by the rich LaCalmette family who own the nearby manor house Marienborg. The chapel looks strange as it is actually not connected to the church but is dug into the ground and covered by dirt and now grass.
