This striking, architecturally unusual, huge (as big as Copenhagen Cathedral) and breathtakingly beautiful church, built in Bispebjerg, a suburb of Copenhagen, Denmark's capital city, is "expressionist" in style, dating chiefly from the 1920s but not completely finished until the 1940s. I doubt if there can be another anything like it. The exterior is immensely impressive in size and style and... More

I feel so lucky that I get to live right next to one of the most distinguishable buildings in Copenhagen. It's a little ways out from the center of the city, but I think everyone should visit this church. It's unlike anything you have ever seen before, inside and outside. I guarantee it'll be worth your time!

I've never seen anything quite like it - an organ-shape church facade if you will. The interior is modern and perhaps less impressive, but its a sight to behold from the outside.

Very impressive from the outside and majestic inside. It gas no decorative windows etc. only the beauty of its Norman interior - a must to see. Surrounded by delightful houses - not unlike... More

a masterpiece in danish architecture. P.V.Jensen Klint and craftsmen have made this fantastic church. Every yellow brick is visible. Do´nt mis it, and take a break at the corner cafe Måltid on Bispebjerg Torv 2.

Grundtvigs Church is a bit off the beaten track in Copenhagen (cca 6km from the city centre), but one busride (6A if I remember well) takes you there in 20-25 minutes. It is located in the Bispebjerg district of the city. You can read a lot about it on the internet so I am not going into the details. I... More

Even though it is not in Central Copenhagen, you have to visit Bispebjerg and it's Grundtvigs Kirke. Not only is it built on the highest point of Copenhagen (Bjerg means mountain and 58m is high in Copenhagen), but also the church has a unique architecture. Best thing about it... I live close to it ;)

The church which was built as a memorial to priest, hymn writer and educator Nikolaj Frederik Severin is a fitting tribute to a man who has done and achieved so much in him chosen vocation. The church is located in a quiet area off the normal tourist beaten path in Copenhagen. If you love Scandinavian design and architecture, this is... More
