  • Saw the church as we passed by so we stopped. An immaculate building both inside and out with much history. Well worth stopping at for a few minutes if you are passing by.  more »
  • It is a nice sight that meets one when you come cycling to the Stauning village church, whose cemetery is surrounded by a beautiful renovated stone wall. The church is close to Ringkøbing Fjord and about 9 km from Skjern. It is constructed around 1150 in Romanesque style of granite quadre. Later extensions are a sacristy at the south side of the choir, a tall tower and two late Gothic-style weapon houses. In these extensions, monks ' stones have been used. The House of arms to the north is used today as a chapel. The church is unusually large, suggesting that the parish of the Middle Ages has been very prosperous due to livestock rearing on the fjord meadows. The cattle were exported all the way to northern Germany. Before the church was built lay, there a wooden church here. There is another single oak bed that is currently held at the National Museum of Denmark
