Carl Nielsen's childhood home, now a museum. It is on the southern edge of the much grown village. The intervening houses are quite new so the house would have been outside the village at his time.

Extended in the 16th century with a new choir to the east and tower to the west, displaying striking Renaissance gables. White-painted walls with red roof-tiles in the very characteristic Danish church style.
