Churches and historical monuments in Denmark really have special and unique feel to them, so it was nice living basically next to Frederiks Kirke and get a chance to pop in there on the way to the town centre. Not as magnificent as St Pauls, but I would say I even liked it a lot more than the roman Pantheon!... More

We were in Amalienborg, so we tried our luck with going in for free. All they ask when you enter, is silence and respect. Perfectly fine. You couldn't walk up to a certain point for free, but we ended up taking some good pictures, and reading the dome inscriptions. If you're nearby, drop in for free.

We stumbled across this beautiful church while strolling around Amalienborg. The church caught our eye as it is quite a stunning building from the outside. Entrance to the church is free and photos are allowed. The only issue they have is asking you to keep noise to a minimum which reinforces the purpose of the church - prayer and not... More

My wife and I went to Amalienborg and arrived too early for the museum to be open so were left with an hour to kill. The church happened to be open so we went in. As someone who goes to church regularly, I get quite irked by how ostentatious some of these old churches can be but this was unique... More

We were lucky enough to open our hotel window and be greeted by a perfect view of the Dome of this church. At ground level, there was a lot of building work going on outside the church, which only contrasted with the serenity inside the church. I loved the signs requesting silence, reminding us that churches are designed for prayer... More

Ok St Pauls this is not, but on entry it had an errily serene feel to it. Enjoyed the dome artitechure from within adored with many features typical to its scene. The silent hush of fellow tourists observing the silence whilst taking photos that such an opportune moment should not be missed. A piece of freeness that ticks the right... More

Walked up here from tour stop. Very majestic and impressive. Pretty plain inside, but a very reverent air about the place.

Very dark inside. I thought it was pretty posh building with all those fine decoration and luxurious fabrics. The dark marble does make a intimidate effect with the gold decoration along. Beautiful building indeed.

The dome is clearly the best feature of this church - although the rest of it is very nice. It is certainly a worthwhile historical building to visit if you are in Copenhagen but it is fundamentally a church so don't expect a museum. Worth a visit.

This church is really nice from the outside, and it fits really well in the neighbourhood as this part of the city looks like Paris, but inside it's nothing special.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood 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.
