The church itself has some outstanding architecture and the feel and experience of the place is something that you should see when you are in Copenhagen. I'm not religious but when I walked inside I was taken back by the beauty in side as well as the feeling I got, walking in there really made me appreciate churches for what... More

Had a very enjoyable visit with friends here recently. Surprised to see so few people taking the dome tour. It was more than while worth the 35 DKK; they missed out big time. If you are two days in Copenhagen you ought to visit this church, which is one of the most beautiful churches in Copenhagen with a lot of... More

We found the church while wandering in the area of Amalienborg Castle. The exterior is quite impressive but the large dome roof is what attracted us. The inside is fairly plain which is the norm for Lutheran churches, however the paintings on the roof are spectacular. It is very welcoming inside and we spoke at length to one of the... More

At 13:00 and 15:00 there is a tour up to the tower. Make sure to get there at least 5 minutes before and someone will show up to collect you. It is 35 kronos/5 Euros for adults and 20 kronos/3 Euros for <18 or students. About 250 or so steps. Great views of the city and the palace and harbour.... More

We popped into this church while we were in the Amalienborg Palace area. It is visible from the palace's fountain courtyard and easily identifiable with its tall green gilted dome. I recommend this approach to the church as then it is easy to find. There is no sign outside the building indicating it is the marble church so keep a... More

We found the Marble Church (or Frederiks Church) to be a very grand, impressive church. The exterior was stunning, with its spectacular domed roof. Inside was smaller than you might expect, but very welcoming nonetheless. It’s very close to Amalienborg Castle and you can take some good photographs from the square looking up to the church. We didn’t get opportunity... More

Frederiks Church is commonly known as the Marble Church. When a tour bus arrives, the entrance to the church is packed. If you have time, walk away from the crowds and enjoy the interior in peace. We sat off to one side and just enjoyed the beauty and the solitude. The ceiling is gorgeous, as is the rest of the... More

The Marble Church is also called Frederik's Church. It is a round church with rococo architecture. It is an Evangelical Lutheran church in Copenhagen. It is located west of Amalienborg Palace. The architect for the church was Nicolai Eigtved. The church was started in 1749 but was finished only in 1894 for lack of money. It was then that a... More

A fab church, so quiet a perfect place to be still. Thought it would be bigger, but it was worth the visit.
