Explore Denmark

The town of Løgumkloster grew up around Løgum Abbey, which was founded in 1171 by Cistercian monks. Although inhabited since the middle ages, it remains a small village home to around just 3,000 inhabitants. There are few signs of the power and extensive lands once controlled by the abbey before the Reformation, although it’s possible to stay at the monastery’s retreat, the Løgumkloster Refugium, where retreats include morning services in the Chapel Hall and Church. These days the closest town is Tønder, some 15km south near the German border, where visitors will find more accommodation options and some good places to eat.
