Christians Kirke

Christians Church

Baroque Church With Theatrical Interior


Off The Beaten Path

Address: Phone:
Strandgade 1
Copenhagen, 1401

Description

Christianskirken is a common national church with enough space for the creative arrangements in theatre, ballet, and concerts that you often find here. It is situated on Christianshavn, the small island between Copenhagen city and Amager. The church is characterised by its blue-black tile roof that shines and glimmers in the sun, its sandstone walls, and its tower. It was built in 1755-59 by Nicolai Eigtved, who was inspired by the Baroque movement. The interior is almost theatrical, with benches on the floor and boxes on the balcony. The King's box is opposite the altar. There are no admission fees.
