    The village Lutheran church is located in the very center of Toreby. The church is incredibly large for such a small town. Use the back door shown in the photo for a guage of the size of this village dominating church. That long steep roof would make a great ski slope on the flat island of Lolland. There is plenty of head room inside the chapel even for the tall Danes. The church was built in sections over the past 400 years or so. The church is completely surrounded by the village cemetary. The cemetary is beautifully landscaped and perfectly maintained. The groundskeeper does not miss a single weed. The hedges and trees are trimmed to perfection with Danish pride. The artwork in the church is interesting and varied, and the villagers love to show it off to visitors.

Toreby Local Customs

  • by Scandahoovian Written Dec 12, 2009

    My Grandfather was the Head Pastor for Denmark and Greenland. His home church was in Toreby. His name was Valdemar Christoffer Frederiksen. He always wore a suit instead of the traditional Pastor's robes. I never met him, as he died before I was born. But what I heard about him was that he always had a formal burial for everyone, no matter what their station in life was. He believed everyone was a beautiful and precious child of God and he treated everyone with the warmth of his heart. If you visit his church, you'll see his headstone. Maybe being in his presence will warm your heart too!
