Click on any underlined regional name or descriptor above to go directly to that section of this index.  Within a region, sites are listed alphabetically by city and site-name.

If you are looking for a specific site by its institutional name (e.g., a church or school) or by the instrument's proper name, then use the "find in page" feature of your Web browser to locate a distinctive word (or partial word) in that name.


  1. For an explanation of the instrument-type tag at the end of each site link line, see the Instrument Type Abbreviations.

  2. The region names used here are geographic, not political or administrative.  They are not used within the site data pages that are linked from this index.  Instead, you will find there the old county ("amt") names that were used prior to the metropolitan administrative reform that took effect on 1 January 2007.  For the names and locations of those old counties, see an English-language Wikipedia article with a with small map and English spellings, or the Danish-language equivalent articlewith larger map and Danish spellings; this also lists (but does not describe) the larger number of pre-1970 counties.

  3. If you do not find here a city (or instrument) which you think should be listed, then check the page of European sites that are no more.  If it's not there, then please send a message to telling everything you know about it.
