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.

It's not always opened to the public , but by chance we decided to go take a look and it was opened today . Really beautiful on the outside and on the side the white walls give a sense of space and harmony. Founded around 1200 the church has been remodeled several times , you can see the different styles... More

Dom Kirke, the Århus Cathedral, claims to be the longest church in Denmark. A wedding was in progress inside, so we had to wait about 15 minutes; but we were treated to a glimpse of a good-looking bride and groom, about 30 years old, and their relatives and friends, including an exuberant little boy of about three in a houndstooth-checked...

This is the longest and tallest church in the country, at 93 m in length and 96 m in height. Originally a place of worship for Roman Catholics, the cathedral came under Protestant control during the Reformation. Many original frescoes were damaged when the interior walls were painted, these are now being gradually restored. With a history dating to the... More

I'm told that the Queen loves to come to this cathedral when she is in Aarhus. After seeing so many churches in Europe, it's great to see this example of the light-filled northern Europe approach to worship. Beautiful artwork and styling. Of course - it's in Denmark!
