Vor Frue Kirke

Church of Our Lady

Copenhagen's Cathedral


Off The Beaten Path

Address: Phone:
Nørregade 8
Copenhagen, 1165

Description

Vor Frue Kirke (the Church of Our Lady) serves as Copenhagen's cathedral, and was completely rebuilt thrice (in 1316, 1738 and 1829), after being destroyed by fires. Architect C.F. Hansen's neo-classical facade contrasts greatly with the ornate interior, which features statues of Jesus and the Twelve Apostles by the world-famous Danish sculptor Thorvaldsen. The museum in the crypt is fascinating and displays models and remains of the previous buildings. The Christmas concert by the Danish Boys Choir is a highlight of Denmark's festive season.
