Peace-full stop

Peace and quit, that is what you can get there, in beautiful surroundings. And remember to go the the tomb and out in the garden.

From the ARoS, we ambled along the cobbles to the Frue Kirke, a Catholic church with a crypt church in its basement dating to 1060 and perhaps the oldest church in Scandinavia. Because the entrance was not obvious, Charles elected to stay outside while I explored. The crypt church was very simple, with low vaulted arches and a copy of... More

The Church of Our Lady is one of the largest churches of Åarhus, It is situated in the centre of the city not far from Aarhus Cathedral. The church was originally known as St. Nicholas' Church but was expanded by the construction of a Dominican priory in 1240. Between 1250 and 1500 the church was heavily expanded by the addition...

Went to a very nice Palm Sunday Mass, which started with a procession outside and was enhanced by a youth choir. Very nice young priest. Welcoming and friendly. A nice community!

I happened upon the Church of Our Lady by accident while looking for the Aarhus cathedral. It also has the characteristic green roof, but is much smaller and Catholic in origin. At one location in central Aarhus, three different churches are represented: The Crypt Church, The Abbey Church and as it is now, the Church of Our Lady. The first... More

One reason only -- it is very difficult to find a time when the church is open to visitors -- nigh on impossible unless one is a parishioner. Still - if one can find a way into the church, it is a beautiful historic venue that, has commonly offered occasional sermons in English (and other non-Danish languages).

The Church is in the middle of the city center and is a must see. It is not quite as big as the Cathedral, but it is much more interesting (historically) and beautiful. The Church is laying on top of the old church, which is still accessible from the church ground floor (it is now a crypt). Also the church... More

This is a little jewel a short distance from the city center. There are three churches 'on site'. The first is a viking chapel from 11th century that is fantastic in the basement of the second church which they build on top of it. The third is a small chapel in the courtyard that is very intimate and has some... More

We found the Von Frue to be a nice church. The crypt in the cellar was quite dark and didn't do much for me. I really liked the small side chapel out the left door and on the left. It was very sweet.
