If you like churches it's quite nice. The entrance is free like most other churches. So it's worth a look if you're in the area.

It's a nice church, made some nice pictures there, if you're in Odense it's worth to take a look. When we went in we were the only people in there and it was nice to see catacombs of some Danish kings. I don't know exactly...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

Like most Danish churches the plain exterior hides the relaxing quiet of the interior. Despite the plain white of the Lutheran interior the usual range of Baroque and Roccocco altar pieces remain

This is a lovey old church to visit. It is huge, and the detail is amazing. The guilded altar is beautiful, and do go downstairs to see the bones of the king. We were lucky enough to be there while someone was practicing on the...More
