Østrup Church on Klintebjergvej close to Odense Fjord is a beautiful church from the Middle Ages, where everyone is welcome for a bit of peace and thoughtfulness - you too!
Østrup Church previously belonged to the manor Østrupgård.
The church is from around the 12th century.
In 1595 a new choir was built by Østrupgård's then owner Morten Skinkel. The choir contains a well-preserved headstone after Poul Skinkel, former owner of Østrupgård (died 1565) and his wife Ida Andersdatter.
Worth a look:
- Altarpiece from the 18th century in rococo style
- Pulpit from the Renaissance, approx. 1610
- Granite baptismal font
- Small crucifix from the Renaissance
- Frescoes with St Peter and St Sebastian
In the church there is a light globe where you can light candles.
Østrup Church is a road church.
