I believe this is the biggest church in town. Lots of history and absolutely beautiful. Located in the center of town, close to shops and restaurants. Parking close by.

Unfortunately it was closed when we went there in spite of the information we had, so could only view from the outside.

A swift 5 minute tour as a service was due to start at 12 - but worth a proper look round for those interested in church architecture.

Stopped in because it was on my way to the castle from downtown. Great example of Scandinavian architecture with some interesting literature to take a look at. Worth a look.

This is a nice church downtown Elsinore. It is called St. Olav and is a cathedral built in 13th c. The walls are whitewashed enhancing the few ornaments within. The most original thing to see is the baptism corner - quite unique.
