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 :)

Rising high above the city's skyline, it's hard to miss this imposing edifice. In fact, we originally thought it was the city's cathedral (it's not, but the real cathedral is also beautiful; just not so imposing from the outside). It was a bit of a walk from where we started, but once one arrives, there is also Amalenborg Palace and... More

We saw the dome of this church while driving into Copenhagen from our cruise ship terminal and were so entranced by that view that we had to find it. It was a bit of a walk from where we started, but worth it as the dome and organ pipes were some of the best we saw on this trip. Right... More

Popularly known as the Marble Church. We stopped here for a look after seeing the changing of the guard at Amalienborg Palace since they are so close to each other. Beautiful building worth seeing, especially if you love architecture and art.

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
