Photographer's Note

This is the Cathedral of Aarhus, situated in the middle of the centre.

It's build in Roman style. A Bishop, Peter Vogensen was the founder and they started to build this church around 1200. It's devoted to Saint Clemens.

Around 1300, it was ready, but than it burned almost totally down in 1330 (only some side-chappels left).

Between 1450 and 1520 it was renovated and rebuilded in Gothic style. After that period, it didn't change that much.

The altar is from 1497 build by Bernt Notke from Lübeck (Germany).

With its 93 meters, it is the longest church of Denmark (the tower is also 93 meters high). It has 13 high windows and 1200 seats.

More information: (Information in English and German as well.)

About the picture: I know my perspective is a little bit strange (I got some reactions on it), but I think it is funny. It makes the church a little bit more round and gracious/impressive, I think.

It was also in reaction to the picture I saw on the official website; Just look at it if you want. Here the church looks so skinny and square. Therefor I think my perspective is better.

(But yes, I sharpened it too much.)
