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.

Leider wird aktuell innen die Orgel renoviert. Trotzdem eine schöne Kirche, Dänemarks größte übrigens. more »Unfortunately, the organ is currently being renovated inside. Nevertheless, a beautiful church, Denmark's largest by the way.
Beautiful place. The stained glass windows were wonderful and it was very atmospheric and peaceful in there. Also it was easy to find as it is located in the center of town so that was great too.
Amazing structure. There is a car park beside the cathedral but they charge by MINUTES. A must see place in Aarhus city centre.
