“lovely church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

Largest dome in Northern Europe. You can climb up to the dome on certain days. The church itself is unassuming and small, but the interior of the dome is beautiful! Free, and well worth a visit if you are nearby.

“A very impressive building, worth a visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

A really impressive round structure. As you walk inside the eye is drawn upwards. It really is a vast church.
On our visit we didn't climb the tower as we had been up the 'Round Tower'.
I am not religious but would recommend a visit to admire the architecture.

“Very beautiful indeed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

Unlike most other churches in Copenhagen, this is a completely round church.
From the outside it is very beautiful, on the inside it is sober, but still beautiful.
Make sure to be there at 13.00 or 15.00 so you can climb to the roof and have a spectacular view over the city.

“Be Sure to Climb the Dome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

Make sure you visit at 1 or 3 on Saturday or Sunday, climbing to the top is an experience and gives the most spectacular views of the city - costs $5 or so, but the highlight of the day. The church itself is gorgeous, small (by European church standards), but very beautiful. Right next to Amalienborg, so easy to hit in the same afternoon.

“Just great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

We came here right after visiting Amalienborg palace and were facinated by the view of this giant dome! Right after the first view I thought that it is very simillar to Pantheon in Rome. Sad thing - trip to the top of the dome was closed dew to the low temperatures. But this building is still one of the most impressive in Kopenhagen.
But it's hard to spot it if you travel from Tivoli park.
