Right in the middle of the city is this beautiful objective!
May 2021
We entered a day of religious celebration and saw and listened to a choir that sang very harmoniously. A pleasant emotion!

Highest tower in Århus
Jun 2020 • Family
The cathedral is very impressive from the outside, but rather disappointing inside.
But high to the ceiling for sure, impressive building.

Spectacular
Sep 2019
Although small for a catherdal well woth looking round, pick up an english guide at the door to see and read about the treasures inside. Free entry but extra cost for the tower worth the climb for the views and the see the bells.

Another church
Sep 2019
Another church although it had its good qualities. The sound quality was good and it was excellent refuge from the rain.

Organ Restoration Underway
Jul 2019
Enjoyed our visit to the largest cathedral in Denmark. The organ is undergoing a complete restoration and completely shrouded in scaffolding. The rest of the cathedral is open for visiting and it's a lovely, light-filled space. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful cathedral
May 2019 • Solo
The cathedral was built in 1201 in the Romanesque style and like most, was enlarged in the 15th century. In 1330 it was destroyed by a large fire but many of the original bricks were used in rebuilding it. It is one of the longest cathedrals in all of Denmark at 305 feet long. The cathedral was dedicated to St. Clemens who was the Roman Pope in the year 100 and who died as a martyr when he was drowned with an anchor around his neck.

I was told that the altar piece is magnificent, and the cathedral is full of more frescos than any other one in Demark, but it was closed to tourists as it was Sunday. As an aside, I came back two days later but got there just after it had closed at 4:00. So I never got to see the inside.

An amazing concert and visit.
May 2019 • Couples
This is a beautiful cathedral. We heard Mozart's Reqieum performed here on May 25, 2019. It was a truly breathtaking experience. Would highly recommend searching their website for concert information - in addition to just visiting the building itself.

An elegant and beautiful church endowed with spirituality
May 2019 • Solo
This was by far the most beautiful church that I visited on my cruise of the Baltic and unexpectedly so.. It is filled with light, air ,tranquillity and majesty despite the number of visitors present.. Its simple decoration of white washed ceilings and walls with medieval frescos was awesome. The outside looks like it is made of red and brown lego bricks but when you get inside - it is magnificent and not a drop of gold leaf anywhere.

Although it is traditionalist Lutheran church it retains some of its catholic legacy and symbols of other religions- it really is a church for all Danish people to worship in and find solace in its quiet walls.

Highly recommended

Traditional Calvinist cathedral as largest in Denmark
Apr 2019 • Friends
Respecully maintained on the main square of Aarhus the Dom Kirke is spare in its architcture and decoration it has soaring ceilings and a slient Godliness. Volunteers protect the interior from tourists as this is a major church in Denmark
