Højerup Old Church, Stevn's Cliff, Zealand, Denmark (The Stevns cliff is on the World Heritage List since 2014)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The church was build about 1250-1300 A.D.

At that time it was laying in a long distance to the sea and the cliff.

But as time went on the sea got closer to the church. And in 1928 a great part of the cemetery and the choir of the church crashed!

Fortunately the church was closed because of safety reasons in 1910.

Today the remaining part is secured and opened for the public. You have a great view from the church!
