The country’s most beautifully located church? When you stand on the hills around the church house you surely think that’s the case. Saint Ibb’s church from the 13th century lies stunningly on the top of Kyrkbacken with a wonderful view of the strait. This church is the only one of Vens’s two churches in use. In the church you can see Tycho Brahe’s own church bench and an altarpiece painted by Tycho Brahe’s court painter, Tobias Gemperlin.
