Super impressive

One of the most impressive building in Copenhagen! Definitely worth a visit! Climb on top if possible, amazing view on the royal palace from there!

This is a nice church located pretty close to both Amalienborg Castle and Nyhavn. The dome is huge and must be one of the largest domes I have seen. The inside of the church was quite beautiful too. Worth a visit if you have time to spare.

A must see when in the Frederiksstaden district of Copenhagen. It is beautiful inside and out, and there are times one can climb to the dome top for a city view.

Its really a beautiful church. The dome is pretty incredible and the decoration inside is nice. A lot smaller than I thought It was going to be when I was walking up to it.

IT may be one of the largest in this part of the world, but not all that impressive except the huge dome from the inside. From the inside, it is quite listless.

Gorgeous building, was a shame that mass was being interrupted for those who attended by people taking photos and selfies but a gorgeous building seeped in history.

It is one of the largest free standing domes in the world and is very impressive. The church itself is gorgeous and you can take tours on Sundays to the top of the dome that are very much worth it.

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.
