  • We had unfortunately rather poor weather during our visit to Copenhagen. But the St. Alban's Church in the mist had somehow special in itself. By the way: It is located only a few metres from the "Little Mermaid".

  • The architectural style of the Church is a Victorian Gothic. It is the only Anglican Church of Denmark and as such retains all the symbols of the British churches: the tall Bell Tower of Gothic, arched Windows, exterior coatings in glassed tiles white limestone, terracotta patterned and oak benches. The Church is surrounded by beautiful meadows and a pond which contribute to give the environment a vision from the English romantic garden, making it lovely and photogenic from every angle.

  • If you have worship service at Sunday at Copenhagen heart, this is a church with english service. I have visited third time today and it was nice and good with communion service at every Sunday.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful church! The volunteers were very helpful and they have translations in English. Free.
  • Beautiful Church. If youre here, Check the castell as well.
  • The scenery is amazing. You can take full-frame pictures from the water fountain.
