This was a beautiful church but what made it even more wonderful was the visit to the top. The tours are at 1:00 and 3:00 sharp each day you walk about 260 (very narrow and windy) steps, but the view and structure of the dome is worth it.

Frederik's Church popularly known as The Marble Church for its rococo architecture, is an Evangelical Lutheran church. It is impressive, especially the main entrance. I highlight the Dome, externally and also the inside which features paintings of the twelve apostles, as well as the main altar and the beautiful organ.

It took a while to get to this church because of road construction. It is pretty inside, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. But it's worth a trip if you are a church lover.

Just outside Amalienborg Palace. The church is surrounded by many other large buildings, so it is difficult to get a good photo of it. You can climb up to the dome and walk around.

I did not go inside but view from outside is really very beautiful. My wife went inside and told me that it is more beautiful.

We stopped by on our way to the Christiansburg palace to see the church. The dome is made of marble and it is known as the Marble Church. Not worth going out of your way for but worth a look if you are in the neighborhood

Like any other European churches, this too is marvelous and made with marble. Resembles the Vatican city Saint Peter's Basilica near the dome area. Just in front of the Amelionberg castle. It's a free attraction and worth a visit. The beauty of the church from inside is magnificent.

Just a minute walk from the Palace. Wonderful dome, which you can visit (a fee is charged for the dome, but not for the ground floor).

A quick review of the history shows the royal family's wish to commemorate its 300 years on the throne with a marble church.Lack of funds left a ruin which much later was rebuilt in limestone by an industrialist/speculator in exchange for property development rights in the vicinity The dome is impressive and the small organ was my favourite.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
