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.

We were on a Viking Ocean cruise and took an included tour of town. Of course we've seen many churches, but this was so beautiful. Worth the tour.

I was in the area walking to a bus tour and saw this church. It's old and the architecture is very interesting. It only takes a couple minutes to look at and is worth the time if you like old churches.

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
