It is a “small” church, but it is nice inside. The entry is free and you have to be in silence when you are in.

We were visiting family after a fantastic Sunday branch at Fusion Kokken, we saw the change of the guard at the palace that was right across and decided to visit Frederic’s Kirk. Beautiful circle shaped church. We did not have a guide but worth going in and seeing the beautiful organs and the amazing frescos. We were told that a Christmas concert there a few years back was an unforgettable experience. Worth visiting.

Well I was on a tour of Copenhagen and the tour ended about a block away and thought I would take a look. I have visited a few churches in other countries and many have amazing inside architecture. This didn't disappoint at all the dome at the top was really neat and glad I got a pic. It was lil busy inside and would have liked to get more in the middle to get a pic above but I didn't want to interfere w/ those worshiping. Even like laying down to get that perfect pic I have done in some buildings but no I wouldn't do that here just would feel wrong. Anyway I would suggest going here even if not religious just seeing the inside well worth it..

From the outside, the main cathedral in Copenhagen is impressive; reminiscent of St Paul's in London or St Peter's in Rome. Located on the northeastern side of the city centre, between Nyhavn and Kastellet, it is also difficult to miss and easy to get to.

On the inside though, it is much he same as any other cathedral. They enforce the "silence" policy more strictly than in any other cathedral I have visited, and their begging for donations is almost as bad as they are in Bruges or Budapest. The enforcing of the silence rule was quite amusing though, as whilst we were looking around there was someone playing the cathedral organ very loudly, and incredibly obviously badly.

Make sure to look up as well, the frescoes on the inside of the dome are unique, and well worth seeing; more so than the rest of the church.

The”Marble Church ‘ is a wonderful tribute to the three hundred year rule of the House Of Oldenberg.Frederick V proposed the Church and a planned town to honor the absolute monarchy.The Cathedral was not finished until the consecration on or about 19 August 1894.Historians will be particularly interested in The statuary Of Soren Kierkegaard,John Wycliffe and Martin Luther,the Father Of The Reformation located at the foot of the Church.This is another important site for Church Historians!
