  • This is an incredible looking small church adjacent to the Kastellet and The Little Mermaid. It didn't seem as though you could go inside most of the time, but it was very cool to look at from the out...  more »
  • This stone church was beautiful. It was a dreary day and it just seemed to pop against the green landscape. You enter by giving a donation and there are pamphlets to read the history. They had candles...  more »
  • We were doing a track and suddenly we came across this beautiful church! I haven't had the opportunity to meet the interior because it was closed.

  • We went to the 10.30am service, which was traditionally Anglican with excellent preaching, and coffee and cake afterwards. It is inherently a local parish church, and we were made very welcome. A lovely morning.
  • Beautiful church, specially on the outside. Very different from what we normally see in Copenhagen. Great location too, close to Gefion and The Little Mermaid. Entry for visitation is free and they deliver leaflets in many languages explaining about the history of the place. The inside, however, is not so impressive.
  • A very beautiful english church. Quite distinctice compared to other churches in Denmark
  • Just a walking distance from Gefion Fountain is this church. We didn't go inside, just admired its architecture. Going back to year 1887, dedicated to St. Alban, the first martyr of Great Britain and in a nature compound.
  • What is the name of this treee!it s magnificent! The view from here is wonderful you can take such an amazing picture. But i didnt go inside the church but just outside.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
