The structure of Aarhus Cathedral has a long history. The cathedral is dedicated to St. Clemens, who was the Roman Pope 100 a.d. who died as a martyr when he was drowned with an anchor tied to his neck.

The Cathedral is periodically closed from October 14, 2019 until May 25, 2020 because of restorations. The church is open during December and of course when there are events. From June 2020 the church will be open as usually. You can see the opening hours of the church right here.

The Cathedral was built in Romanesque style in 1201. It was enlarged into its present form as a Gothic cathedral between 1450 and 1520, at which time it received its magnificent altarpiece by Bernt Notke, the font and frescoes. The cathedral is frequently used for concerts as well as normal services.

On Sundays and church days the Cathedral is only open for churchgoers.
