Asmild Church is one of Denmark's oldest churches that is still in use. Located near Viborg, this church has a rich history and a special atmosphere that attracts visitors from near and far.

Historical significance

Asmild Church has been a bishopric since around 1060. Among the most famous bishops is Gunner, who co-authored the Jutlandic Law. His importance to the area is commemorated with a statue by the car park. South of Asmild Church was an Augustinian monastery, and the church served as both monastery church and parish church until the Reformation.
