A very nicely decorated building that serves as a music school and for certain administrative tasks, in the courtyard of Belp Castle there is also a fountain around which there are rest benches.

Klein aber fein. Ideal für eine kleine Feier. Vor allem jetzt während der Corona Zeit. Bänke vorhanden und ein kleiner Weier lädt zum Verweilen ein.

Danmark Church

The first written record of church in Danmark locality date back to the year 1291. Close to the church are several stones with a Christian text and cross inscribed. The oldest parts of the present red-brick church are from the 1300s. In the late 1400s the church was enlarged to the appearance it has today. The church has been modified both internally and externally several times, among other things after the fires in 1699 and 1889. There are lot of well-preserved mural paintings in the walls.
