Go in to see the frescoes

Good frescoes, so it's well worth going inside though I found the opening hours a little difficult. The frescoes in Viborg are better, but these are much older.

This is a centrally located cathedral, with a history dating back to the last decades of the 12th century. The frescoes are beautifully painted, with one remaining from 1300. An unexpected treat was a large votive ship, on the left side of the cathedral that hangs from the ceiling. History states that the ship had survived undamaged and drifted ashore... More

Protestant churches are renown for their minimalistic and simplistic design, often reflected in scandinavian design. Indeed, "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven". The Domkirke strikes a refreshing balance, retaining the simplicity of the protestant style while still offering enough extravagance... More

I have been to this church a few times and I really like the church and its atmosphere inside the church and specially during a service If needed is there a place for prayer and if you want to light a candle is this possible too. You can definitely feel the history and how important this church has been for... More

We came inside five minutes to three, but were told to leave in five minutes because it was closing time. Anyway, our impression of the Church is very positive. Next time we will find a concert and listen to the organ.

This is an exceptional piece of architecture, the oldest parts of which are nearing 1000 years. With tombs, exceptional art, and the tallest building (by law) in what is arguably the oldest permanent settlement in Denmark, this is a very worthwhile, free stop -- one where you can 30 minutes to an hour, then go to the adjacent performing arts...

Already a best vist for people coming to Aarhus and the Princes, Kings and Queens who has been here before for the highest ceremonials. The church has been here all the time and history has been passing for hundreds of years.

One of Denmark's eldest churches, located in Aarhus, one of Denmark's greatest artist communities. Best seafood restaurants with family buffet are found in the harbour docks.

I grew up in Aarhus, so....this cathedral has always been a point of return. As a kid we had Christmas celebrations here with my school class. As an adult I have used the Church for meditations during my lunchbreak. And I was married there. Enjoy the great art. Enjoy the peace. Enjoy the longest Church in northern Europe....and I know....I... More

Oddly positioned massive church at the end of a very large square. Take a couple of minutes to call in, regardless of your religion. It is quite stunning on the inside but is also very peaceful.
