This church is a hidden gem in Aarhus and holds several historically intersting rooms, e.g. the crypt church (the oldest preserved stone church in the Nordic countries), the Monastery church and the enclosed Monastery garden. Definitely worth a visit!

A beautiful ceiling and interesting statues make this a place to visit if you are close by. Don't walk miles unless you have an interest in church architecture or religious buildings as it won't stunning you but definitely one to see if you do.

I decided to attend an evensong here and it was very beautiful to be joining the congregation there in the church, singing hymns in Danish and feeling the goodwill. Gorgeous light church too, as the walls are cream coloured.

Not very imposing from the outside and I'm not really a churchy person but always like to see inside especially on a very cold day! It was quite nice pleasant and I took some nice photographs. Not the best church ever but well looked after and interesting.

By accident arrived there on a free organ recital day. Listening to William Walton's Crown Imperial in Denmark was unexpected, to say the least. Magnificent interior, restored frescoes and Baroque chapel all breathtaking.

From al regular traveller's point of view it's rather not interesting. The crypt is nice and there are some pieces of art on the walls but otherwise it's nothing extraordinary. On the plus side it's free.

From the ARoS, we ambled along the cobbles to the Frue Kirke, a Catholic church with a crypt church in its basement dating to 1060 and perhaps the oldest church in Scandinavia. Because the entrance was not obvious, Charles elected to stay outside while I explored. The crypt church was very simple, with low vaulted arches and a copy of... More

The Church of Our Lady is one of the largest churches of Åarhus, It is situated in the centre of the city not far from Aarhus Cathedral. The church was originally known as St. Nicholas' Church but was expanded by the construction of a Dominican priory in 1240. Between 1250 and 1500 the church was heavily expanded by the addition...

Peace and quit, that is what you can get there, in beautiful surroundings. And remember to go the the tomb and out in the garden.

Went to a very nice Palm Sunday Mass, which started with a procession outside and was enhanced by a youth choir. Very nice young priest. Welcoming and friendly. A nice community!
