Aarhus Cathedral (Danish: Aarhus Domkirke) is a cathedral in Aarhus, Denmark. It is the longest and tallest church in the country, at 93 m (305 ft) in length and 96 m (315 ft) in height.

The construction of Aarhus Cathedral began in the 12th century and it is the main edifice of the diocese of Aarhus for the Church of Denmark, dedicated to the patron saint of sailors, St. Clemens. The cathedral is situated on the port side of the central square of Store Torv (Large Square), with address “Domkirkepladsen 2, 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark” in the inner city. The church can seat around 1200 people.

In 1642 lightning struck the tower and set it ablaze, destroying some of the historic bells, but damage to the interior of the church was minimal.

The tower is the tallest in Denmark at 96 meters. It received its present form in 1931.
