1/11 Year-round: Aarhus Cathedral

Residing in the town centre is the impressive Romanesque Aarhus Cathedral with brickwork that towers skywards to 96m, crowned with copper tops, all beautifully oxidised to a muted sage hue. Construction began in the final decades of the 12th century, and the building was being dressed with finishing touches a staggering 150 years later. It is the tallest church in Denmark.
