Marmorkirken (Marble Church) Review

Officially the Frederikskirke, this ponderous baroque sanctuary of precious Norwegian marble was begun in 1749 and remained unworked on from 1770 to 1874 due to budget constraints. It was finally completed and consecrated in 1894. Around the exterior are 16 statues of various religious leaders from Moses to Luther, and below them stand sculptures of outstanding Danish ministers and bishops. The hardy can scale 273 steps to the outdoor balcony on the top of the church for great views of the queen's palace and the Opera, across the canal. Afterward, you can continue along Bredgade to the exotic gilded onion domes of the Russiske Ortodoks Kirke (Russian Orthodox Church).

    Marmorkirken Review

    Quiet spot to rest your feet and meditate. The dome is quite lovely.
