1. Gråbrødre Klosterkirke

Show sight on map

Graabrødre Klosterkirke in Odense was part of Gråbrødre Kloster. The church was built in the late 1200s and came to house many distinguished burials, the first being two of Erik Glipping's daughters. King Hans' queen, Christine, who around the year 1500 lived in Odense, decorated the church with, among other things, Claus Berg's Altarpiece and allowed herself to be buried here together with her husband. Since then, her son, Christian II, was also buried in the church. After the Reformation, the church fell into disrepair and in the early 1800s it was demolished and the burial grounds moved to St. Canute's Church. In the late 1800s, a smaller chapel was built at Gråbrødre Hospital in a different place than the former church.
