A very nice old church. There is a lot of information inside the church about the history. There are beautiful frescoes in the ceiling. The church is open every day from 9-17. It's a great way to get a better idea of ​​Stege's history by looking into the church. Definitely worth a visit !!!!

Beautiful old church. Miserable acoustics, but a visitor may not care. Very harsh restoration of lime decorations.

A beautiful red stone church, built in the first half of the 13th century in Romanesque style. The original parts consisted of ship, drive and apse. The tower was added later. In 1460-1525 the church was expanded to the size it has today. On the north side of the choir, a sacristy was erected 1907-1909 with a main restoration

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
