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.

The exterior is nothing special but the unusual frescoes and decorations inside make a brief stop here worthwhile.

A huge building that leads the thoughts to the question of how to build such a thing at this age. I'm impressed.

The a Cathedral has several surprisingly impressive impacts; firstly when you go from a app. 100m tall and still discrete tower appearance to a very small entry reception and then open the door to an app. 100m impressively long and spectacular church hall: it's a roller coaster feeling. Then again, for a 13th century church you find a beautiful minimalistic... More

A beautiful church makes a great end to your walk through the city's main shopping street. You can climb up to view the city from the tower - quite steep and good exercise according to my sis - or just walk around downstairs and look at the beautiful building with lovely paintings and art. Peaceful and very nice.

A nice place to visit in the middle of the city if you want a moment of peace and tranquility. Its also a interesting to visit if you are lucky to spot a concert there.

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
