Being founded by Vikings more than 1,200 years ago, Aarhus is one of the oldest cities in the Nordic countries, and the cultural heritage from the Vikings has left its obvious mark on the region, which from around the year 800 until 1050 was the centre of the Viking Empire.
The Viking Museum is a window to the Viking town of Aros. Some 1200 years ago the Vikings founded Aarhus – at the very same spot and level where The Viking Museum is situated in the basement underneath the Nordea Bank in the 'Skt. Clemens Torv' Square.
The monastery here was set up by Dominican monks and was first mentioned in 1246 but was probly established in 1227. The Church of Our Lady now occupies the south wing of the relatively well preserved monastery buildings.
