With a lofty nave spanning nearly 100m in length, Århus Domkirke is Denmark’s longest church. Its construction began around 1200 and took 100 years to complete. In the 15th century the cathedral was transformed from its original Romanesque style to its current Gothic character. At that time the roof was raised over the nave, the landmark clock tower was erected, high Gothic windows were installed and the chancel extended.
