    The church was originally part of a monatsery by the same name - it was built in 1296. The monatsery was dissovled in 1536 at the Reformation. The church remained and functioed as a parish church.

    The church and surrounding buildings have been restored and through each century work has been done to recreate it's past - both in appearance and by the artifacts housed in the church.

    Church of the Holy Ghost

    Walking along Amagertorv at Copenhagen's Stroget, you will pass Helligåndskirken, also known as the Church of the Holy Ghost. This is considered the oldest building in Copenhagen, as it is the only building to partially survive the city's great fires. The walls were constructed in the 1400s and the steeple was re-built to the original (1594) specifications in 1880.

    Open 12pm to 4pm, seven days a week.
