The best part of visiting this somewhat massive church (which, by the way, is not built mainly of marble) was climbing the tower and seeing Copenhagen from "on high." The views were spectacular, especially because the day was clear and sunny. NOTE WELL: The tower is only open on Saturday and Sunday at 13:00, and only for one group--of about... More

I visited the Marble Church multiple times to take in the wonderful architecture of the church. On a clear day I highly recommend going up in the tower and taking the views of all of Copenhagen. Beware though, you must get there early to get in line to be allowed up. They only allow about 50 people into the tower... More

Stunning inside and out. The paintings inside the dome are beautiful and made my knees quiver just thinking about how anyone managed to climb that high up to paint them! Recommend a visit after/before seeing changing of the guard down the road. Wish I was in Copenhagen on a weekend to go on the tour into the dome for what... More

A fantastic domed church, which took nearly 150 years to complete. It has 12 pillars supporting the huge dome with beautiful paintings of apostles.

This is a very beautiful church, it has an amusing history, about the material it is made of. Do recommend seeing it.

The church although not massive is beautiful when you get inside. There are beautiful drawings all around the ceiling of the apostles. It's very quiet so you can just sit and have a few peaceful moments.

This church is an imposing building located on a main street of Copenhagen. The dome of this church is the largest in Scandinavia and has a series of paintings. If you are in the area, this church is worth visiting.

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.
