Digital time travel

Discover what the abbey looked like more than 500 years ago.

Lofty red brick walls tower over the landscape. This Cistercian abbey was so magnificent that God must have helped the monks who built it. That’s what some peasants must have thought as they stood in front of Esrum Abbey more than 500 years ago. But today, most of the walls have disappeared. Only a fraction of the abbey now remains. That is what makes it so difficult to realise just how impressive it was in its heyday. But we have made the impossible possible! Virtual and augmented reality enable you to see the ancient brick walls rising from the ground and to enjoy a close encounter with the monks’ lives.
