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.

This is a beautiful Cathedral right in the centre of downtown Aarhus. For a low price, you can also climb the Cathedral's bell tower to get a pretty view of the city.

The buliding is not overly ornate on the outside. However, the interior is immaculate. The murals and artworks are beautiful. The altar is beautiful and modestly decorated. There was a service during my visit right in the semi-enclosed area so I got to listen to the hymns accompanied by organ. The only stained glass window is behind the altar. The... More

Begun in 1190 and finished in the 16th Century this cathedral is the longest and tallest in Denmark with the bell tower being some 310 feet high while the church is 300 feet long. It contains over 200 frescoes. Well worth a visit.

I expected this 12th century Cathedral to be dark upon walking through the doors, but what I found was just the opposite. Bright and welcoming with a gorgeous nave. For me, the highlight of the Cathedral was the magnificent frescoes and intricately carved main alter...truly a wonderful historic site!
