  • St. Alban's Church is a small church right next to the Gefion Fountain within a minute of walking distance. The Church is nicely situated next to the river which is a nice spot to visit if you are on ...  read more »
  • The ride up is nice. Close the Little Mermaid and large parks. The Church is not bad, when you enter they give you a paper with information in your language. If you are in the area I recommend to enter; but, it is not essential.

  • Tore Dokkethal wrote about "manipulation" to give a donation. I witnessed no such thing. I'm not religious and I rarely bother with churches. They welcomed visitors and had prepaped two-sided infosheet (available in great many languages). Glass paintings caught my eye and I found myself marveling the skill involved for lengthy time. Yes, I made a modest donation, if for no other purpose than to offset the sand I dragged in with me. No one even hinted that I should and I would have not even realised the small plate on the table was for that purpose had I not seen the person infront of me drop a few coins into it. This despite the two persons standing there handing out the info sheets of various languages.
  • The scenery is amazing. You can take full-frame pictures from the water fountain.
  • Don't go inside this church. I was manipulated to donate all my savings. I almost went bankrupt. But it is beautiful and clean.
  • Very beautiful church, right next to the old fort
  • Peaceful.
