This architectural and cultural landmark is worth the time to visit. Although it is small, it is rich in detail. There is a small display case with artifacts including a dutch collar that is hundreds of years old. We would have liked to attend worship services during our vacation, but could not find any information about service times.

The original church on this site was built in 1666. It and a subsequent church both burned down. Eventually, this church was rebuilt in 1793 and has occupied the spot with Lutheran Services since that time. (The Lutheran Church was the official church of the Danish West Indies) All the pews are enclosed with short walls that make the floor... More

While Sylvia was shopping at the open air market in Charlotte Amalie I was busy checking out old hoistorical buildings. Fredrick Luthern Church quickly caught my eye. I walked inside (no fee) and found the church beautiful. Then I walked down to a open park with many benches in the shade of large trees. I met up with Sylvia as... More

Frederick Lutheran Church has a very beautiful church building, inside and outside, but the members are its real beauty. They were very welcoming to visitors and made us feel right at home. The church members are very active in the community and demonstrate the love of Christ by their actions. Definitely worth visiting and, if at all possible, worshiping there.

This is an old church building right in the heart of Charlotte Amalie. We like to visit these old buildings as the architecture is so interesting (note that the pews in the back of the church go sideways) and it is amazing that these buildings are still standing after hundreds of years. The altar is beautiful and it is worth... More

What a beautiful church! When you mount the wide stairway toward the entrance you feel as if you are about to do something important with your life. The furnishings on the inside are done well. The sanctuary is kept clean and available to visitors. While I know that the church is located on an island, I must say that the... More

If you are into church's then this is worth the few steps (not 99) up the hill to visit. Interesting architecture as it's constructed like an upside-sown sailing ship. Very helpful staff.

The church is rather a beautiful building that has a lot of culture and history. The signs outside the building provide a lot of information and the church is open to the public to either tour or worship in. If you like local history and culture I would recommend stopping by. It's located to the right of Government Hill/ Emancipation... More

A very pretty church in Charlotte Amalie, with a pleasing exterior. We just popped in to look at the interior and a small band was practicing for the Sunday Service. Dark Caribbean wood interior and cool.
