Aarhus Cathedral, Aarhus
(4.4/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Aarhus Cathedral is home to one of Denmark's great treasures--a 15th-century, carved altarpiece with movable sections. The outer walls of the cathedral and the chapels are the only original Romanesque elements that survived Gothic rebuilding. Look for the Lazarus window in the northwest corner, which probably served as a counter for sharing food with the lepers. The cathedral also houses the largest stained-glass window in Denmark, five wrought-iron latticework portals, and a pulpit carved with biblical scenes. Notice a votive ship hanging at the crossing as a reminder of those lost at sea. The wall paintings of St. Christopher and S.t Clement are the tallest in the country.

  • It is a very nice and exciting to visit the Church. The leaflet, which is available in forhalden, tells well about the history and church furniture.

  • it is quite an impressive building in the city centre.. the moment you arrive there you get amazed by the size and its architecture.. take your time to walk around it :) 
  • 4 (50 +) on tour in Aarhus ... on Sunday morning, the Church was open, the light was lit, there were personnel who were not God's favor and it was cold outside. Was told that we had to come back about 10-15 min. Has difficulty understanding the treatment we got.
