Jelling Church

Jelling Church seen from one of the mounds (the one on the other side of the church held the grave of Danish king Gorm the Old until he was reburied inside the church). The church, the mounds, and the runic stones (see post above) are on Unesco's World Heritage List.  

The frescoes, clearly inspired by Byzantine art, are copies of the first frescoes in Denmark.
