This little church is quite old and is located next to the university. It has a lovely spire that we can see from an ange of a window from our hotel room in the Skt. Petri hotel. The church's grounds and crypts are the resting...More

Good service, but old rooms in need of modernization. I couldn't say that the rooms were very clean either. There were mosquitos in the room so we couldn't have a good night sleep. A.C. did not work properly either.

I was staying at a hotel nearby and decided to take a look. The grounds are very nice and was perfect for a walk in the crisp winter sun. I would like to have taken a look inside the church but it is only open...More

We enjoyed visiting this church because it does not seem to attract too many tourists. The interior is quite simple but it is also quiet and peaceful. It is actually Copenhagen's oldest church, with parts of the building going back to the 15c. The north...More

The outside of the building is beautiful, very well kept and ancient. The inside is very mordern, big contrast that does not seem to match.

I have to say that the hotel was undergoing refurbishment when I visited, so obviously not the best time to go. Still, I was disappointed by the experience. The gym is tiny, and I mean, tiny! basically a small room with a couple of bikes...More

I was not planning to visit this church. It bumped into it by accident when I was about to go to the cathedral. It is a typical church without anything particular, except that it is standing there since the 15th century.

St. Petri kirke. (St. Peters church). It wasn't on the map, but I saw a sign to go in. The church itself is very plain and boring. But pay 25kr and get the key. The attendant opens a secret door and viola a mosoleum from...More

This is a decent mid-15th century church, which had been rebuilt a couple of times. While the church sure looks impressive from outside, when you get in, its plain white color is very underwhelming, causing it to feel a bit empty and cold. The acoustic...More

I found this mid-15th-century Gothic church by accident, tucked behind a wall just off the busy Norrgade. It has an enclosed courtyard with gravestones, and is absolutely still and quiet—a perfect relief from the traffic just outside on the street. Because it's an Evangelical-Lutheran church,...More

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
