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.

Yes, a nice cathedral in an old square with several picturesque buildings, worth seeing and/or walking around.

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!

I didn't expect to enjoy Arhus as much as I did---who's ever heard of Arhus? You go to Copenhagen when you're in Denmark. But Arhus is friendly, accessible, and unexpected. Just like this church, which is not so impressive on the outside. On the inside---what fun! This was a Catholic church until the Reformation, when its frescos were covered up... More

Beautiful Church and interesting history - ask to hear about the burial chamber on the left when you enter the hall - the tower is defiantly worth the exercise!

At 93m long Aarhus Domkirke is the longest church in Denmark. It also boasts the country's tallest spire. It doesn't look very attractive from the outside but the interior is beautiful in its simplicity. It is whitewashed throughout and has soaring plain windows which flood the place with light. Under a couple of the arches you find some stunning medieval... More
