Grundtvigs Church is a bit off the beaten track in Copenhagen (cca 6km from the city centre), but one busride (6A if I remember well) takes you there in 20-25 minutes. It is located in the Bispebjerg district of the city. You can read a lot about it on the internet so I am not going into the details. I knew I was going to see something quite out of the ordinary and I did. From ouside the building, I would say, is interesting, especially the main facade. Walk around it before you go in, the setting itself is worth the time. But once you enter you just stand and gasp for breath. The shapes, proportions, materials (only brick and wood and the metal of the organs' pipes), the colours (various shades of yellow) and the light (shining in through clear glass windows) transports you. So do the workmanship, the unity of the design (by three generations of the Klint family) and the overall clarity and magnificence of it all. It certainly is one (and perhaps the first) outstanding example of modern Danish architecture and design. It decidedly added a lot to the experience that when we visited, on a sunny Saturday morning in early September this year we were all alone there. Then a Japanese family joined us and it was good to see they felt very similar about what they saw and to exchange our impressions. (Just let me add one more remark: later on the day we bumped into them in Frederiksborg Palace, Hillerod and then in Kronborg Castle at Helsingor!) We rounded off the day with a visit to the Round Tower in Co. center. Great day!
