8. Sahl Church

Sahl Church is an impressive Middle Age church built from ashlar. Previously it was regarded as the parish church in the Ginding Herred district. The church is known for its golden altar reputedly made in Ribe around 1200. Only seven churches in Denmark have had a golden altar. The altar was made from gilded copperplate and adorned by the artist with motifs from the life of Christ. Centrally in the copperplate are inlaid rock crystals. The original altar can be seen in the church.
