Cathedral

Recommended
Originally dating from the 13C, the cathedral was completely remodelled in the 15C in the Gothic style. There are also more recent features, such as the spire, which is early-20C.
The 93m-long nave is the longest in Denmark. The overall impression is of pleasing proportions and lofty elegance. Traces of 15C frescoes may be seen, together with a magnificent triptych dating from 1479, the work of Bernt Notke (1440-1509), an artist from Lübeck.
