Marble Church - Frederiks Church Tips (38)

Frederikskirke (Frederik's Church)

Frederik's Church, also called "Marble Church", is located near Amalienborg. The church was built according to plans by the architect Ferdinand Meldahl. It was finished after 145 years of construction in 1894. Around the cupola are 16 statues of religious leaders and several sculptures of Danish ministers and bishops.

Frederiks Church

The massive Baroque sanctuary of precious marble is also called The Marble Church. It was being built for about 1,5 century due to budget restrains and was finally finished at the end of 19th century. Its cuppola is really beautiful.

Marble Church

It's only really the foundation that is made of marble but look at its splendour nevertheless! Frederiks Church as its proper name is, was first started on in 1749, with inspiration from Rome, but wasn't completed until 150 years later due to financial difficulties when a new architect took over as the original died. 1874 it was completed and today, you can visit the dome weekends for a nice view of the surroundings. The area around the church is very continental rather than Danish. My Copenhagen intro picture shows the sculptures outside the church.

Tremendous domed church constructed from mid 1700s and not completed until the end of the nineteenth century. The outside dome is guarded vy a ring of Danish saints and important clerics. The inside is very impressive and if you time your visit towards sundown light filters through the stained galss and projects blue and white crosses on the marbled walls of the dome.

Marmor kirken (the Marble...

Marmor kirken (the Marble Church) is one of the well-known silhouettes of the city's skyline. In 1749, the first brick was layed to the church that was ment to be a rococo church made of Norwegian marble. This is the reason why it is called the Marble Church, even though it only is the lower part, which is of marble.
The inspiration to the church came from St. Peter's Church in Rome.

It took 150 years before the church was finished.
