Lovely church service
Aug 2021
I always visit lots of churches when I travel - and always try to attend Sunday services. I did so with this church. It was an easy ride out of the main part of the city, on Bus 29. I had never seen a church with this style of architecture before and I was so moved. It's gorgeous. The service was so nice (even though I don't speak Danish) - the organ music was beautfiul and I was able to follow most of the service in the hymnal and the sheet they handed out. People were mostly dressed nicely as well. Some babies were baptized at the service I attended and that made it more special. I think that even non-churchgoers would enjoy visiting this church. Be sure to walk around outside and see the surrounding buildings with a similar architectural style.

Copenhagen's most well known church
Aug 2020
The Grundtvig Church is a stunning piece of architecture but is also great to visit if you want to experience peace and tranquility. it's in the Bispebjerg district, in the north of Copenhagen. You can get there on bus 26 from the city centre - it would be quite a long journey on foot. You can't enter during church services (unless you want to participate of course) but otherwise admission is free. Apparently it was constructed from 15 million yellow bricks and it has 2 organs. The interior exudes a cathedral-like calm. Well worth heading out to if you have the time.

Gorgeous! Worth the bike ride.
Oct 2019
Wow! I had read about this church and was drawn to visit by the photos. I rode my bike from the center city to the church; this was a fairly lengthy bike ride, but do-able. A small warning: the entire journey from the center city to the church is a steady incline, so you will feel it! But, the ride back is lots of fun.

The church is in the center of a square and surrounded by small homes that are architecturally unified with the church. It makes for a great, peaceful walk around the area and beautiful photography.

I visited on a Saturday morning. This was an ideal time to go for photography; the church was very quiet during my visit, and I was able to capture several photos with no one in them. And I took a lot of photos, because the exterior and, in particular, the interior of the church are absolutely stunning. In typical Danish fashion, the interior is relatively unadorned; the beauty of the architecture speaks for itself. The space is light-filled, tall, and very peaceful. It was fun to take it in from all angles; I ended-up spending longer exploring the interior than I thought I would.

At the entrance there is a small table with brochures, postcards, etc. that you are able to buy for a small fee (dropping the fee in a box). The brochures were very informative, telling you about the architect and the construction process.

Definitely worth your time while in this beautiful city. Shortly outside of the little residential compound in which the church is located is a nice cafe that's a great spot to grab a coffee before you return to the city.

Pleasant Visit

Quiet and peaceful visit in this grand model charming building. I felt the freshness while there was a light shower when I arrived. Looks a bit out of the tourist district but not that far away even by bus.

Unique church, worth the quick stop
Sep 2019
This church has unique architecture (very similar to Hallgrímskirkja in Iceland). It was an easy drive to visit and we stayed for about 30 minutes.

If you have the opportunity to visit it, even though it is only from outside, do not miss it. It is a very beautiful church.
