Visit the world heritage site of Christiansfeld.
Founded in 1773 in South Jutland by the Moravian Church at the request of King Christian VII, the site is an example of a planned settlement of a Lutheran free congregation centred in Herrnhut, Saxony. The town was planned to represent the Protestant urban ideal, constructed around a central Church square.
The democratic organization of the Moravian Church, with its pioneering egalitarian philosophy, is expressed in its humanistic town planning. The settlement’s plan opens onto agricultural land and includes important buildings for the common welfare such as large communal houses for the congregation’s widows and unmarried men and women. The buildings are still in use and many are still owned by the local Moravian Church community.
Today, the city is lovingly restored and the special architecture, materials and colours make it absolutely unique, especially at Christmas, where you can enjoy the beautifully lit Moravian stars suspended in the streets.
A stroll in the city centre is a walk through world history with something new to discover on every street corner.
