This is where the Danish kings and queens are buried. Rigt now they are designing a grave for our Queen and her husband, to have it ready when necessary

“Happy surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

This church houses the remains and caskets of the monarchy. It is interesting to see all the different designs of the various rulers. It was covered on the Copenhagen card too. That is actually why we went in. We were right there since we had come to see the Viking Ship museum so we thought we would take a peek. But if grand tombs are not your thing, skip it.

“Outstanding but a bit Creepy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

There is no wonder why this is a UNESCO world heritage site. You feel more cultured just for visiting the place. It's always a bit strange visiting people's crypts, especially when they were the ruller of the nation. A take out for me was to see the fashions, wealth and importance of the monarchy at the times in which they were buried reflected in how ornate their crypts were.
