The church was built in between 1872-1873 as a replacement for a previous Romanesque church. The church is very unusual in featuring the use of red and yellow brickwork to produce the striped effect in the walls. Granite blocks from the previous structure have also been reused in the walls.

The cathedral is frequently used for concerts as well as normal services.

» Aarhus Ådal
Valley situated west of Brabrand Lake ; is a part of the subglacial stream trench that stretches from Aarhus to the lake highland in Midjutland. The valley is bounded to the North and South by moraine formations. The northern part of the valley is cut through by Lyngbygaard Stream. At the beginning of the sixties the valley was drained and Aarhus Stream was removed, straightened out, and diked in, which ruined large natural values. Today the valley is mainly cultivated fields and meadows, and a couple of small forests and bog areas.
