Dear Jan,

Thanks for sharing this picture and information with us.

On a french website we can also read that :

"L´église Saint-Nicolas à Møgeltønder appartenait jusqu´en 1970 au Château Schackenborg. Certaines parties de la nef romane et du chœur datent du 12ème siècle. La tour du 15ème siècle a servi comme un phare pour la navigation marine. L´orgue de 1679, qui provient d´une église villageoise, est le plus ancien au Danemark."

Really interesting and just wonderful. YS54 + L139!!!

Have a nice week-end.
