Denmark: Christiansfeld

Today I got three postcards: one from Denmark, one from Poland and one from Germany.

The card from Denmark shows Christiansfeld. Christiansfeld is a town in Southern Jutland. It was founded in 1773 by the Moravian Church. The town was built between 1773 and 1800 following a strict city plan. Today is Christiansfeld's old town a popular tourist destination and it is known for its honey cakes. Since last month is the Moravian Church Settlement in Christiansfeld on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
