    The details of the carving and the other decorations in this church are well worth your attention. They depict various biblical motifs.

    The beauty of the interior resides not just in the wramth of the wood, but in the detailed designs -- even on the roof. The lighting fixture refers again to the Viking marine origins -- resembling the wheel of a ship.

    Favorite thing: The church is also noted for its carillon which is comprised of 24 bronze bells. Its tones reach out over the countryside at 9:00, 12:00, 15:00 and 18:00 o'clock. The full carillon was installed in 2002, after our visit.
    .
    There are concerts as well as regular church services. Here is a German site with more information.

    Favorite thing: The design elements of the church that reflect the old Viking ships include dragon heads at the gables and "Midgard" snakes at the ridge of the roof.
    .
    The Norse god Thor fought this snake. See the website for what happened!

    Fondest memory: My favorite image from our visit was the snow-laden trees -- they looked like a set from the Nutcracker ballet!
