A quite respite when walking through the main shopping area. This is a very well heated church so also good for warming up again. At midday they have a brief service of music and prayer, which is worth catching.

This was a pretty church. There was a book sale on when we walked past. Worth a look in if you see it open.

It's a beautiful old church right on the main shopping street. Lots of great history and a few monuments in the courtyard. Very lovely to stop in and take a peek

We were lucky to get inside and listen to the live organ music. That was amazing! Also it's a very beautiful building too.

Lovely church in the middle of the pedestrian area of Copenhagen. Forget the shops and the people for five minutes and go in, sit down and let peace enter your mind.
