Archaeological excavations in various parts of Denmark have revealed much about the way the Vikings lived. Located some 45 km (28 mi) south of the Danish border near the German town of Schleswig, it probably dates back to the end of the 8th century.The houses are deemed to be among the most sophisticated dwellings of their time.The flat ceilings were replaced by high cross vaults, windows were enlarged with pointed arches, chapels and towers were added and the interiors were decorated with murals. Although most Gothic architecture in Denmark is to be found in churches and monasteries, there are examples in the secular field too.

Towards the end of the 13th century and until about 1500, the Gothic style became the norm with the result that most of the older Romanesque churches were rebuilt or adapted to the Gothic style. Canute's presents all the features of Gothic architecture: pointed arch, buttresses, ribbed vaulting, increased light and the spatial combination of nave and chancel.

In parallel, the half-timbered style became popular for ordinary dwellings in towns and villages across the country.

Late in his reign, Christian IV also became an early proponent of Baroque which was to continue for a considerable time with many impressive buildings both in the capital and the provinces.

Hundreds of stone churches in the Romanesque style were built in the 12th and 13th centuries.

They had a flat-ceilinged nave and chancel with small rounded windows and round arches.
