Odense Cathedral

The Cathedral, St. Knuds, was built in the 1300s. It is a Gothic cathedral with a bright, high nave. Many consider this to be the finest Gothic building in Denmark.

It is named after the king Canute the Holy, who was murdered here in 1086. His bones are on display in the crypt. King Hans and Christian II are also buried in Odense Cathedral.

The magnificent altarpiece dating back to the 1500s and carved by Claus Berg is well worth examining in detail.
