Church of Ansgar

Ansgars Church is placed across Kildeparken, in Aalborg centre. The cruciform church in baroque style is named after Ansgar - the Apostle of the North. The ground plan is a Greek cross with "chapels" in the four corners of the cross. 

In the church you will find more different styles which all give a harmonic whole. The mixture is for instance seen at the entrance of the church, which is not part of the ground plan, which symbolises the evil is just outside the church. 

The interior is kept in white and bright colours but is mostly whitewashed, and opposite most other churches, the church's altar is placed in the west end. The reason for this is the church's position right next to Vesterbro.
