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 church was first built as a hospital in 1295, then expanded to include a monastery in 1474. The west wing of the church is the city's only preserved medieval building.
