  • A must for everybody interested in churches and take your time to visit the crypt.
  • Great achitected building in the middle of the city.
  • Beautiful architecture. The organ's sound is just amazing.
  • St. Canute's Cathedral (Danish: Odense Domkirke or Sct. Knuds Kirke), also known as Odense Cathedral, is named after the Danish king Canute the Saint (Danish: Knud den Hellige), otherwise Canute IV. It is a fine example of Brick Gothic architecture. The church's most visited section is the crypt where the remains of Canute and his brother Benedict are on display. Worth visiting when you are in town.
  • A piece of history. The king it was named for is lying in the crypt. Free and easy to get to
