The Marble Church

Visit one of the most incredible churches in Copenhagen

The Marble church is beautifully located in a line with Amalienborg Palace and The Opera in the elegant area of Frederiksstaden.

The official name of the church is Frederik's Church, and the history of the church goes back to 1749 in connection with the grand plan making a new district called Frederiksstaden. 

A capsized project

The architect Nicolai Eigtved died in 1754 and the French architect Jardin continued the building after a revised drawing. The work now proceeded at snail's pace and owing to a squeeze in the funding the completion of the building was postponed several times.

The building was not resumed until late 1800's for the church to be finally inaugurated in 1894.

Wedding magnet

Today the church is ranked to be a modern city church and thus the church room is open to the public every day.

It is extremely popular to be married in the beautiful church, and you will hear wedding bells chime on Fridays and Saturdays.

There is a magnificent view from the dome, which can be visited at 1 pm and 3 pm every day during the summer months and the same hours on the weekends of the rest of the year.
