You must come here to see the old crypt as it dates to the 11 th century (1060). You will need a torch or your mobile phone light to get a good view of the tomb stone down there.

We visited here only briefly with friends and found the place peaceful and restful. Would have loved to sit longer. The crypt and monastery are just lovely places and I think more worthy of time than the main sanctuary. Recommended

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.

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...More
