An impressive Church

When I am asked to show the sights of Copenhagen I always include a visit to the Marble Church (Marmorkirken). It is an impressive church well worth a visit!

This is a lovely church, well worth a visit. Quite spectacular architecture on the outside and also beautifully designed on the inside.

It is a very pretty church so it is totally worth the visit. There was a little bit of waiting before we could get in but inside it was not that crowded.

Situated due west of, and very close to, Amalienborg Palace, Frederiks Kirke is popularly known as the Marble Church. It was designed in 1740, with the foundation stone laid in 1749, but construction was then abandoned for virtually 150 years. The huge green dome and spire, resting on 12 columns, represents the largest church dome in the whole of Scandinavia.... More

Moved by the request for silence in the church itself. Helpful and friendly guide, even to the extent of advising anyone claustrophobic to stay at the back when climbing the steep and narrow spiral staircase. Really impressive 360-degree view from the top. The guide was more than happy to answer questions: ours were about the harbours, trading with other countries... More

While making our way from the royal palace and seeing the changing of the guard, we came across this beautiful church and felt that we had to make our way inside. Once inside, which was of free entry we were struck by the beauty that surrounded us, the silence and the calm helped to take away any stresses that built... More

We did see it on our way to the little mermaid. Yes, we walked.. We were pleased to see a church with free entry to the public. The architecture here is really fascinating and so ornate in comparison with a lot of the city buildings. The inspiration was probably St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. It was designed by the architect... More

Impressive outside and gorgeous on the inside. My SD card happened to fill so I had no interior pictures, but it was gorgeous. Marble and what looked like other stones.

This church carefully maintains its dignity as a place of worship rather than a tourist site. very impressive inside snd out. The Russian Orthodox Church (around corner, Not open) is worth a look for the golden onion dones)

The church is smaller than I anticipated. You can only walk to the top from 13:00-15:00 so plan your timing well. The pipes from the organ are the most ornate I have ever seen. The ceiling is stunning and if you can take a panoramic photo this is the place, also free except for the climb to the top which... More
