For being nearly 550 years old, the work done to keep this place functioning, they've done a great job. Downside? Screaming kids in the place.

My wife and I are of a different religion, but this is a beautiful house of worship. They were getting ready for a 12 noon organ concert so I suppose the organist was practicing and it was emotional walking around the church. Very worthwhile to...More

Entering the church was made especially nice, since it was warmer than outside. I'm not religious, yet there was a comfortable feeling, despite the violence that originated the dedication for the church. I was happy to give a donation since it helps to maintain this...More

Old and with two skeletons in the crypt. The decor or size won't awe you but the story will. Plenty of info inside. Only worth seeing if you're in Odense. On the level of Aalborg and Elsinore this is one of the least interesting cathedrals...More
