You can approach it from the Kongens Nytorv station, from Bredgade street. It is where you find the main entrance. The other side, from street Store Kongensgade is closed amd being renovated, it is not possible to cross from behind the church. It is also calles Frederik's Church.

If you have a chance to climb the stairs and experience the view from above the dome - please do so. The view is simply amazing. Unfortunately access is limited to only Saturdays and Sundays at 1 and 3 pm. And it costs like 25 or 35 DKK, But it is really worth it. If you would like to see... More

It is worth a stop in with all the marble and has a few unique features to it. The sheer size of the dome and all the work engraved in the marble, it has the apostles all around. the organ is really spectacular. The altar is simple but elegant. It is very reverent -- I sat in the church just... More

Marmorkirken is fascinating in so many ways. The huge dome can be seen from miles away. Typically a dome only makes up a part of a structure. In this case, the dome IS the structure. As you enter the doors, right away you see the dome overhead. The pews, altar, and organ loft are situated directly below the dome. Take... More

You will probably be walking past here anyway on your way towards the little mermaid, so it's worth making a quick stop to check out the interior. The building is in good condition and the policy of silence inside keeps the annoying tour groups under control.

Not the same ol' church in Europe. Plus, good location next to the royal residences, waterfront and related open space. Good spot to take a respite. Sit, rest, relax, and be quiet, or just dash in for 5 minutes -- it's up to you. Easy stop.

The dome catches you eye from the outside and invites you in. Once inside it is quite beautiful in a simple and serene way. It is not overdone. It is peaceful. Quite stunning. Worth a visit for a few minutes.

We visited this church because it was on our way elsewhere. It was a lovely church, not too overdone and we happened to be in while an organist was practicing for a service which made the visit that much nicer. The church has an interesting history and experienced a 150 year lapse between the start of the construction and the... More

The church is nice, but the most amazing is to go on top of it. It can be done twice per day, at 1p.m. and 3 p.m. (sharp! They don't wait! Be there à few minutes before). It's not expensive and really cool, almost as good as the church of our savior, but with very fewer people :)
