This church is a little removed from the city center and benefits from that, in that it wasn't as crowded as the cathedral. I picked up a paper about it that was meant for children, but I certainly got a lot from it. The church...More

The English name is: Church of Our Lady. The church is nice but the crypt (dates back to 1060) is the show stopper. It is free and well worth the stop. There was plenty of light to see, no flashlight needed.

This church dates back to the origins of Christianity in Aarhus, as the first wooden church was built on this site, outside the confines of the Viking town. Humble as it may seem it holds great beauty. Please go visit the undergrount crypt.

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.

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...More
