Klokkedybet

Is situated in Lillebælt, app. 100 Metres out , in a right line from Middelfart church. Try and go out there, let the boat lie completely still, then you might hear the low chiming of a church bell.

The legend says, that many years ago, when the church bell at Sct. Nikolais Church in Middelfart was used to warn the sailors against stormy weather, a maiden went to the church tower to call the bell, to warn her fiancée, who was on his way into the harbour; even is was no storm, only very windy. The bell went so angry, that it threw itself out of the tower, and took the maiden too. Now they both lie at the bottom of the sea. So, if you are lucky, you might hear the low chime of the bell.
