Børglum Abbey

Børglum Abbey is from 1060. For a brief period, Augustine monks lived here, but pretty soon the Premonstratensian order took over and stayed there until the Reformation in 1536. The abbey played a central role in national and European politics for centuries. Today it's privately owned.
