  • On the first day in Denmark our Danish friends took us to the Kastellet, where one of them works, and then we went to visit the nearby St. Albans Church. It is also near a very nice park as well as Th...  more »
  • This beautiful church is the only English speaking church in the country. Visiting the church is a beautiful experience and one you should not miss when in Copenhagen.  more »
  • The church is very pretty and it's next to a large sized fountain that sees a lot of tour bus visits. Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds.  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Not a welcoming church. My wife and three children went there one morning to attend service. We were turned away at the door.
  • Another stunning work of architecture in Copenhagen.

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.
