It is situated in the heart of the city on Vor Frue Plads next to the main building of the University of Copenhagen.The church was designed by architect Christian Frederik Hansen in the neoclassical style and was completed in 1829.The church can seat more than 1100 people and is decorated with the twelve apostles, the Risen Christ and the baptismal fount in the form of an angel holding a large scallop shell, all in Italian carrara marble. These sculptures were completed in Rome by the famous Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen.In the aisles many portraits of bishops and deans are on display.Night Church thursdays, fridays and sundays evenings offers prayer, electronica, poetry, jazz, taizé, gospel workshop and other contemporary forms all in candle-lighting.

Compared with other cathedrals in this city, it's not the most exciting, but it's certainly beautiful. It feels a bit more modern than many European cathedrals, but the stark white pillars and ceiling are beautiful.

I enjoyed the peace and quiet of this church. The decor is simple and elegant which makes it picturesque. The pews are quite unusual too.

This was a great way to see original work by Bertel Thorvaldsen - for free! The church itself is a clean, Nordic building and was well worth a stop of 15 minutes or so.

It only takes 5-10 minutes to visit this church but be sure to pass by this beauty! Enjoy the sculpture "Dåbens Engel" by Thorvaldsen. It is a masterpiece.

This is another really stunning church in Copenhagen, immaculate white and surrounded by statues of the disciples. The chandeliers appear like hovering halos above the central aisle.
