The Marble Church is one of the landmarks in the rococo architectural ensemble of Frederiksstaden (Frederick's City). The marble was planned, but budgets were tight, and it was built in limestone, after all. Which does not detract from its imposing presence, just beside the royal castle of Amalienborg. Seen from the canal during a canal tour, the view is enhance... More

Just a block from Amalienborg is the impressive Marble Church. We were fortunate enough to visit while the organist was playing, and most of the other visitors observed the posted request for quiet which added to the reflective atmosphere. I've visited a number of older cathedrals in Northern Europe and this one stands out as one of my favorites.

My wife & I throughly enjoyed this church from not only the outside but what a wonderful surprise we were in for when we walked through the front doors. It was spectacular to say the least. It had such a meditative spirit to it. We just sat on the back benches and just relaxed and felt such a calmness and... More

Largest dome in Northern Europe. You can climb up to the dome on certain days. The church itself is unassuming and small, but the interior of the dome is beautiful! Free, and well worth a visit if you are nearby.

A really impressive round structure. As you walk inside the eye is drawn upwards. It really is a vast church. On our visit we didn't climb the tower as we had been up the 'Round Tower'. I am not religious but would recommend a visit to admire the architecture.

Unlike most other churches in Copenhagen, this is a completely round church. From the outside it is very beautiful, on the inside it is sober, but still beautiful. Make sure to be there at 13.00 or 15.00 so you can climb to the roof and have a spectacular view over the city.

Make sure you visit at 1 or 3 on Saturday or Sunday, climbing to the top is an experience and gives the most spectacular views of the city - costs $5 or so, but the highlight of the day. The church itself is gorgeous, small (by European church standards), but very beautiful. Right next to Amalienborg, so easy to hit... More

We came here right after visiting Amalienborg palace and were facinated by the view of this giant dome! Right after the first view I thought that it is very simillar to Pantheon in Rome. Sad thing - trip to the top of the dome was closed dew to the low temperatures. But this building is still one of the most... More

The church building outside is splendid, inside is not as amazing as well, but it is beautiful. Certainly worth a visit, sit a while and admire the construction and the stones. (Free)

If like me you like looking at the great architecture of the city's you visit this is well worth the visit. Unlike most of the copenhagen churches this is round, sitting in one of the seats and looking up at the paintings on the ceiling is really amazing. This is a lovely place of worship
