Create an itinerary including Aarhus Domkirke
Aarhus Domkirke 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.

  • Why do I like this Cathedral? Because it's simple but nice at same time. It's very light, I like such churches, when you can feel holy spirit but not pressure.

  • visited this place with my cousins a couple of years ago. i live in America but my mom recently found out that this church is where my great-grandma was baptized so when we flew the Denmark to visit our distant family we just HAD to visit the Aarhus Cathedral. it looks plain on the inside but trust me it looks AMAZING on the inside. lots of lovely original relief sculptures and beautiful lighting. plus when we visited there was an organ player performing for all the tourists and it really completed the experience of being in this ancient place of worship. highly recommend visiting if you're in the area, even if you're not religious.
  • Wonderful church. Went to the service this morning and enjoyed a christening there. Queen Margrete was the surprise visitor
  • Beautyful church also open to visite only not whit officiële events like weddings
  • Beautiful building with ascetic interior
  • Very nice staff.
