Sct. Mortens Kirke

The most beautiful church in Randers

An unusually beautiful and big gothic market town church from the end of the 1400 hundreds. The size of the church is partly because of the close by “helligåndskloster” a monastery, which it was connected too, and the placement in a big and rich market town. The church interior is infected by many carvers and remembering tablets of the biggest businessmen of the time.

Alter painting by Per Kirkeby

Inside the church there’s a modern alter painting made by Per Kirkeby. The painting where shown for the first time in 2004 and shows long Friday in the gethsemane garden.

Inde i kirken ses desuden et moderne alterbillede af Per Kirkeby. Billedet blev indviet i 2004 og forestiller Langfredag i Gethsemane Have.

The onion shaped tower and the bell chimes

The onion shaped church tower was first built in 1797.

The bell chimes can be heard during the day, and at the weekly market at the square around the church, and at Christmas time.

The church is open for visitors in the daytime.
