Copenhagen Cathedral, Copenhagen

(4.3/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
At Copenhagen Cathedral, see where the royal weddings and coronations of Danish kings have been taking place since the 14th century. The current building was designed by C.F. Hansen in the neoclassical style and was completed in 1829. The famous Danish sculptor B. Thorvaldsen gave the baptismal font and the rest of the marble works as a personal gift to the church. Notice the statue of Christ above the altar with its welcoming gesture and the 12 apostles in the nave. A marble statue of a guardian angel in front of the altar is holding the font. The cathedral also houses the largest tower bell in Denmark as well as a large choir organ.

  • The tower of Our Saviour is an iconic sight for any photographer, so on our way to Christiania, we dropped by for prayer and a view. Thanks to numerous fires and wars, there is little of ancient times...  more »
  • Another visit in Copenhagen Cathedral, for, among other things. again to enjoy Thorvaldsens Christ figure who is world famous-shown especially in mormon circles (?)-is absolutely beautiful. But all of the Apostles and the kneeling baptismal Angel-(located in the choir) with shower pan in your hands is all amazing sculptures of Thorvaldsen's hand. Nice big spacious Church, which is definitely worth a visit.

  • We visited this place. Well equipped with thick colonne beautiful. Also beautiful images around it. Huge organ. Large chandeliers. I have some pictures. Less beautiful from the outside than inside.

  • Impressive statues of Christ and the Apostles, as well as a kinetic art installation to the front expressing love, hope, gratitude and more.
  • Very impressive looking place inside. Go in and have a look at all the beautifully crafted statues lining the length of the church--not forgetting the captivating ceiling.
  • Very plain on the outside but the real beauty is inside with Thorvaldsen's statues. A must-see in Copenhagen.
  • Very peaceful and spiritual environment😊
  • I think there are more impressive churches in Copenhagen, but this is still worth a visit. You can even write a goal of yours on a bean and place it on their display.
