Those of you familiar to this blog have visited the sand dunes of the northwestern part of Jutland many times by now. I don’t think it is possible to ever get tired of that particular area of Denmark, whether it’s looking at pictures or actually being there in person. It is just lovely. Period.

Anyway. Today we take a look at a church which is about to disappear into the ocean. It was built back in 1250 and was then situated about a kilometer inland from the sea. Much has happened since then. A few years ago it looked like this but since then even more of the cliffs have been tore down by rain, wind and the ever pounding sea. Now it stands but a few meters from the edge and because of this most of the church was dismantled in 2008. The walls of the building and some graves still stand which I’ll show you in the days to come.
