The original form of the Aarhus Cathedral was started in the 1190’s and finished a little more than a hundred years later in Romanesque style. It burnt down though, along with most of the town. The Reformation rolled around, and with it came Gothic architecture. It’s expansions left it the longest and highest church in Denmark. Get some of the locals to narrate the history of the place to you as this change took place – it’s as medievally exciting as it gets. Watch the beautiful spread of frescoes, the stained glass windows, exquisite paintings like the Lazarus Window, St. Christopher and St. Clement (to whom it is dedicated), and St. George and the dragon. The altar is another irreplaceable treasure; the baptismal font showcases the four evangelists in animal heads and has four scenes; the golden door, the bell tower, the model ship, the organ and the tombs and memorials are some of the church’s other draws.

  • Pleasant cathedral building (longest in Denmark), but the main reason we came was to climb up the steps. It costs about 30 DKK to go up about 150 narrow spiral stairs for a view of the city.

  • A very nice place, you can spend up to an hour there.

  • Beautiful cathedral, with some very interesting murals and architecture.

  • Aarhus cathedral was built in 1190 and is a something that should be visited if your in town anyway. It's free and features a lot of history.

  • Lovely organ music
