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 to tourists in the summer months. Apart from that its open for services year round.... 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 and south transepts were added in the 17c.

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 and some weights. Breakfast was good but the place just felt very "cold" and uninviting.... 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 the 1600s containing the bastards of the kings, prominent families and leaders of Denmark. Jackpot... 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 in the church is only ok, as there is no reverberation of the sound at... 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, it's a bit plain inside, but this only added to the restful atmosphere.

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.
