First-time visitors may be bemused to see passers-by stare inquisitively at the roof of the old town hall . Put simply, they’re bird-watching, and have been caught up in the ‘stork culture’ this town cherishes. This is the oldest rådhus (1496) in Denmark and was used as a courthouse until 2006 – these days it’s a popular spot for civil weddings. As well as ceremonial artefacts, there’s a collection of medieval weapons and the executioner’s axe.
