Take a walk in the past
Særslev Church, unusually large for a village church, was built from granite ashlar in the 12th century.
- Gothic tower.
- Crow-stepped gable.
- Baroque alterpiece from c. 1700.
- Original sacristy.
- Romanesque granite font.
The church was in Catholic times dedicated to St. Nikolaus, and there was a holy spring - the so-called Maid Spring - west of the church. The church may therefore have functioned as a pilgrimage church, and that's why it's so large.
On the pediment, a "sun clock" dated back to 1788 tells the time around noon.
Legend has it that the built-in cannonball in the tower was fired at the church during the 17th century wars with Sweden.
