I would recommend to start the visit with the museum on the first floor: It has both a fine exhibition about Luthers reformation and many stories about what to be seen on the ground floor in the cathedral. It cost 20 DKR and includes a...More

There's no entrance fee for the cathedral but you pay a reasonable 20kr to go up the tower and to visit the small museum. The view from the top is amazing and definitely worth the climb. The museum is quite interesting although the displays are...More
