Beautiful Church

Definitely worth making the stop here. The Marble Dome is the largest in all of Scandinavia. The church is beautiful on the outside and on the inside.

Frederiks Church is also known as the Marble Church, the church is the real focal point of the district, the green coloured dome is the largest dome in Scandinavia, the architecture is stunning with the glass stain windows, the alter with the columns and looking up to the dome ceiling is really impressive, well worth a visit if in the...

This church is okay; I could walk there from my hotel. It is touristy but still quiet. There aren't a lot of lovely windows, statues, etc.

Churches are a favourite stop for my travel companion and I, and this is one of the better we've ever seen. We saw it from down the street, and its huge and imposing facade drew us to it. It's one of those buildings that makes you feel small standing outside it. Surprisingly, the interior was more cozy than the exterior... More

A very impressive church, beautiful from the outside, simplistically elegant on the inside. The observation deck is open only on Sat/Sun at 1pm and 3pm, so best be there relatively early if you want to get a ticket to go up.

This church is at the city center for sure someone passes outside it and it is difficult to by-pass it is quite big and impressive. It is worth to make a visit int he interior of the church.

I thought most royal cathedrals were marble. It is an interesting design and is on a royal scale. The dome of the church is in the clouds , so tall especially for a dome that is so massive. All in all I thought the less showy churches in town were more interesting. This is like a cathedral in Rome.

The real beauty of this is on the outside with it's ornate top and statues all around. The inside is a solemn and very high-ceilinged church. Signs remind you this is a place or worship and prayer, not a place of noisy commotion. Please be respectful when you visit and don't make a lot of fuss or run around taking... More

My boyfriend and I visited this church when we vacationed, in Copenhagen, in May 2015. It's right by the royal palace where we saw The Changing of the Guard that day. The church was built in the 1700s and is serene and beautiful inside/lovely architecture.
