Simply one of the most breath taking cathedrals I have ever visited. Additional chapels have been built over the years to house the coffins of past kings and queens. All chapels reflect the art and architecture of the time. A small service was going on...More

I didn't plan to visit the Cathedral, but I'm glad I did. It holds the coffins of many Danish kings and queens. There are also the Little Mermaid's sisters, markings of hights of some of the kings on a pillar, and beautiful frescoes.

The cathedral has been the main burial site for Danish monarchs since the 15th century. It has numerous tombs of the royals buried in the last 500 years. This is a nice church but it is not extravagant in any sense. It was an enjoyable...More
