If you like your churches dripping with more antiquity than Skt. Mikkels, then check out St. Peter's Church. Originally built in the Romanesque style around 1150, it was later -- and regrettably -- given a Gothic overlay. The vestry and porch came later, around 1500, and the present tower is from 1664, when it was reconstructed after the original collapsed. Of chief interest is a series of graves from the Middle Ages, which can be seen in a section that was once used for armament storage. The "big name" tomb here is that of St. Anders, who died in 1206, the first in a long line of vicars and one of the town's founding fathers. His tomb is in the northern tier of the church.
