This Protestant Cathedral is quite typical for a Lutheran church. All art was removed after the Reformation, though it kept its name after Saint Clement. The most interesting part of the church is the reveled medieval Catholic paintings portraying everything from the then King of Denmark, and Devils killing people. It is a most see in Aarhus, though not extremely... More

A nice thing to do on a cold/rainy day. The cathedral is pretty, not wildly spectacular but really very pleasant. For 30dkk you can climb the 150 steps for a nice look out over the city and a good look at the bells.

This huge cathedral looks somewhat forbidding on the outside. For someone used to the stone cathedrals of England, these large brick churches of Denmark are somewhat forbidding. But go inside, and you are transformed into a space that is dazzlingly light and airy. The white walls and clear glass serve to highlight the beauties of Danish woodcarving, wrought ironwork and...

This was a must see in downtown Aarhus. A more simplistic, beautiful church compared to many you see across Europe. A very reverent environment. Take time to peek into this beautiful facility.

Interesting building form the outside the inside is relatively simple but quite impressive. Worth visiting as you are likely top be seeing other things in the town but not worth a special visit unless you are particularly interested in this sort of thing.

The silence in a big and long past historic event like fantasy showing the caracters of the involving elements for the words being transformated in this place by servants of a god to the historic present living rich people in town.

Artistically stationed at the end of the Pladsen (Town Square), this historic Gothic Cathedral boasts of being the oldest, the tallest and the longest Church in Denmark. It was started in 1190, and remained unfinished until the 16th century. It can be seen from most places in the city. It is dedicated to St. Clement -- the Patron Saint of... More

A lovely place for locals and tourists to visit or pray. We weren't sure that it was a worth while trip for us but as soon as we entered the building we were pleasantly surprised. It was peaceful. We took our time checking out the unique architectural designs of the building, tyical of western european styles.
