Coach tour to the Southwest of Zealand where the Hvide genus originates from. We will visit Sorø Kloster church, Bjernede church, Fjenneslev church, Skt. Bendt's church in Ringsted and Haraldsted church

The Hvide family plays a very important role in Denmark's history, churches and monasteries. The most important source for knowledge about the Hvide is Saxo's the Chronicle of Denmark.

I will tell you about Skjalm Hvide, Marsk Stig and Asser Og. Valdemar becomes king, Esbern Snare a powerful great man and Absalon archbishop. Together, the three were a very powerful group. 

Sorø Kloster church is the Hvide family's burrial church. Bishop Absalon is buried in the church.

Bjernede Church is the only round church on Zealand. Bjernede Church was built by Sune Ebbesen, whose father was the uncle of Bishop Absalon.

We can order lunch or dinner for you if you wish. A very good coach tour as an activity for groups.
