Løgumgaarde and Nørre Løgum church

The brick church in Løgumgaarde is the oldest brick church in this part of the country

The brick church in Løgumgaarde was built at the end of the 12th century. It is thus the oldest brick church in this part of the country and was built before the abbey church in Løgumkloster. The rather large church in Romanesque style was probably built by the first Cistercian monks in Løgum monastery. Archaeological excavations round the church have shown traces of a Viking village and a large farmhouse from the 12th century.
