Højerup Old Church


Højerup Old Church was built of chalk ashlar c.1250-1300. Back then,
it stood at a safe distance from the cliff. According to the legend, the
church moves a cock-stride inland each Christmas night; but this did
not suffice to avoid disaster: in 1928, the chancel and part of the ceme-
tary plunged into the sea as a result of the ravages of time on the cliff.
For security reasons, it had already been closed in 1910. Today, the
remainder of the building is thoroughly secured, and once a year -
the second Tuesday of August - a popular evening of music and singing
is held there. Pay the church a visit and take in its special atmosphere.
