This beautiful cathedral is such a fantastic place to catch your breath, withdraw the pulse of Aarhus city and find yourself falling back in time and nearly feel your heart beat rate fall back to a more moderate pace. This is a place full of the life of generations. Stupendous works of art, architecture, faith and craftmanship. Perhaps one of... More

It was beautiful, the gravel doesn't lend to high heels, but was lovely to attend. I enjoyed the service and although I don't speak Danish, understood enough words to use my phone translator. A lovely church with friendly congregation.

Beautiful "light" gothic cathedral (simpler and brighter than typical gothic style) with plenty of impressive details such as the pipe organ (no longer in use) which looks down from its own balcony. It's massive. You can easily imagine the music it once made. Lots of tombs under the floor - many of the stones are now mounted on the wall... More
