We didn't plan to find this church, as we were looking for the Amalienborg. We went in just to rest our legs a bit, and the inside of the church literally took my breath away. Very beautiful. Sadly there were too many tourists with rowdy cameras beeping and clicking. The beautiful round shape of the dome also creates quite an... More

The church is beautiful from the outside. We didn't go inside although it was open. It is a stone throw away from Amalienborg Plance, residence of the royal family. Very nice church to take pictures.

The church is beautiful from the outside. The inside is much smaller than it looks and whilst a quiet place to sit and think there isn't much more to see or do. The church is free to enter and on weekend you can pay to go up to the tower. Unlike most museum/attractions in Copenhagen the church is open on... More

Even though this building is not located in the most touristy streets of the city. It is definitely worth the visit as it is just meters away from other attractions. This church is impressive, once you stand in front of it or see it from afar you will be mesmerized by the size and beauty. It is a 5 star... More

The Marble Church as its know but no marbles to see anywhere. The structure does not look very old at all as the condition looks great from the outside and inside. The dome top makes me think of a similar structure in Rome. This one not as impressive but they are two different buildings anyway. There's ground work going on... More

Small but beautiful. While not actually marble (read the history on it...too long for here), the position of this church in line with the Opera House through the courtyard of the Amalienborg Palaces makes for a grand setting. Its dome is impressive inside as well as out while the church itself is of a deceptively simple design.

Looking at the dome of the Marble Church from a distance, it looks huge. But on the inside, it's really nothing more than the dome! It is a round structure with pews that will sit quite a few people. They say that the Round Tower would fit inside the church. There is no traditional cathedral architecture, no apse or nave,... More

The Church is more impressive from the outside than the inside. There is little information available in the Church, so I would recommend either downloading something beforehand or going as part of a tour. Personally, I find it a little difficult to get a lot from a Church without some history, explanation of the painting and sculptures, and a little... More

It was recommended that I go and visit this church, so having a bit of time to kill before leaving Copenhagen I went along to see it. It was beautiful, but I somehow expected more so was a bit disappointed, it's not on the scale of a lot of places in Italy. It's near Nyhaven so maybe pop in while... More
