The Church of Our Lady is a historical building at Kalundborg in northwestern Zealand, Denmark. The precise date of construction is not known with any certainty, though its architecture indicates the early part of the 13th century.

With its five distinctive towers, it stands on a hill above the harbour, making it the town’s most imposing landmark. The church is built of red brick, indicating that it was constructed no earlier than 1170 when brick was first used in Denmark.

The plan is in the form of a Greek cross with four arms of equal length. The window arches as well as the pilasters and sunken columns inside the church suggest the involvement of Lombard builders from northern Italy. It is said to be Denmark’s most important contribution to architecture during the Middle Ages.

Carlsberg Central Office in Valby
The Carlsberg Group’s new central office provides the framework for a modern and dynamic workplace, where the intention has been to design a building that creates identity, knowledge sharing and innovation. At the same time it has been important that the building stands in harmony with its surroundings and has the aesthetic quality that characterises Carlsberg as a company.
