Top choice in Skåne

One of the finest Renaissance churches in Scandinavia, Trefaldighetskyrkan was completed in 1628 when Skåne was still under Danish control. The light-filled interior has many of its original fittings, including wonderfully carved oak pews and an ornate marble and alabaster pulpit.
