Its history goes back to the Middle Ages, and it was one of the original Catholic parish churches in Copenhagen, founded in the 12th century. Mass is celebrated in German. Remarkable steeple.

This church dates back to the 1200’s and was the first church in Copenhagen. Just down the street from our hotel it was only a short walk. In fact, our bedroom window had a great view of the clock.

Good service, but old rooms in need of modernization. I couldn't say that the rooms were very clean either. There were mosquitos in the room so we couldn't have a good night sleep. A.C. did not work properly either.

We enjoyed visiting this church because it does not seem to attract too many tourists. The interior is quite simple but it is also quiet and peaceful. It is actually Copenhagen's oldest church, with parts of the building going back to the 15c. The north...More

The outside of the building is beautiful, very well kept and ancient. The inside is very mordern, big contrast that does not seem to match.
