I went out for an evening bike ride and passed Sankt Paul's Kirke on my way to Marselisborg. Consecrated in 1887. Normal practice in Danish churches is for the chancel to face east and the tower to face west. This is not so in the case of Sct. Pauls Kirke, however. The donor of the land on which the church was built, councillor of state M.P.Bruun, set one condition - that the church should be built facing the town. Entry via the side door to the east.
