This is an awesome beautiful church. It must be in top 10 of most beautiful churches in the world. This is a must see in Copenhagen. And close to another must see - the Royal palace Amalienborg.

i wasn't able to to in, they had a baptism going on, but the outside was pretty though. if you turn your back on the church and walk straight forward you'll reach Christiansborg within 3min.

Loved it from a distance (you can see it when standing in the palace grounds) as the green dome invites you to come and see it! Gorgeous on the inside, very serene inside and you'll definitely want to take a seat and take in the beauty We are gutted we didn't hear any music on our visit but for those... More

The ceiling featuring the 12 disciples dominates the interior of this church. The outside dome is spectacular and as it is situated near to the palace, it is worth a visit, especially if you have been watching the changing of the guards in front of the palace.

This is another oasis of tranquility - a fabulous interior. Would be good to hear live music there so a bit of planning would pay dividends. Good traditional café opposite - Oscar's

The story behind it is little interesting; however, construction of the church looked normal apart from the fact that it's made our of marbles that took ages for it to be constructed (as Norway no longer was a part of the Danish colony).

When we visited, someone was playing old instruments (or models of old instruments). Fun to see. I'm not sure if this is a regular event and, if so, where to find the schedule.

The church is really pretty from the outside so we went inside and the interior was amazing. We sat down and stared at the ceiling for a good ten minutes, there is so much to look at. Would highly recommend taking a look if nearby like we were.

Beautiful marble church with impressive ceilings and gorgeous alter. On certain days, you can pay extra to go up to the top of the dome. Worth spending some time in!

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.
