Christiansfeld; pictoresque town of the Moravian Brothers
Christiansfeld, a newly acclaimed Cultural World Heritage is a fantastically wellpreserved town from 1773. A religious group, the Moravian Brothers founded the town as a community town and a guided tour here will give you the thrilling history.
In 2023 we celebrate the 250-years anniversary of the town. The Moravian Brothers came from Germany to build a colony in Denmark almost 250 years back. The town which was planned and built on an open field, is still there and very well preserved.
While seeing the church, the town and the graveyard, one can almost visualize the story.
Christiansfeld also played an important role when it comes to the reunification of Denmark and Southern Jutland, which was under Prussian rule for more than 50 years.
