Impressive Cathedral

An impressive cathedral. There's also a smaller room near the entrance with portraits of all the bishops through the ages.

This church is special for being the longest in Denmark. The exterior isn't that pretty, but inside it is pretty neat and detailed. We were lucky to be able to listen to a very talented organ player.

The building is a true and beautiful temple but it is holds many interesting visible and astonishing documents communicating culture, society and history. Hence, the observant visitor can find pieces, giving witness to at least six centuries. Experts can probably spot even more. My own favorites after my very first visit: The plaques commemorating the local soldiers that were killed... More

If you've visited lots of cathedrals, don't be tempted to skip the Aarhus Domkirke. The style of the building and the frescos are quite striking. Have a very good coffee after your visit at the nearby La Cabra.

There nothing amazing if you have seen a lot of churches but it is very well maintained and clean. Fairly pretty.

Every visitor to Aarhus should go see the Domkirke, and I recommend the free walking tour (donations requested), which will include this church. In contrast to the dark cathedrals in other parts of Europe, this one is light and bright. Be sure to look at the beautiful model ship hanging on the left side.

Although the interior is not as impressive as other churches in Danemark, still worth a visit. Free entrance. You can climb up the tower for 20DKK, but this was closed when we visited.

Some of the wall paintings and tombs are fading, but the elegance remains. This is not as gaudy as most catholic churches, and yet there is an elegance at the art work dedicated to religion around the entire church. You'll have a crick in the neck as you admire the wonderful art work!

It's a nice and basic place and it's great for visits. Good to be free and surprisingly not charging the visitors

This old cathedral is a lovely spot for services, for concerts and for experiencing ancient architecture and beautiful artwork. I love the acustics in this cathedral.
