Sankt Petri Tyske Kirke (Saint Peter's German Church) is located in Copenhagen's Latin district, the part of town between Strøget and the old embankments. The church was built in the fifteenth century, and at the time of Frederik II, in 1557, the church was handed over to his numerous German subjects. Today this is a national church, but the language of the ceremonies is still German. At the time of Christian IV, Sankt Petri Kirke was enlarged to include two crossing naves. Since the beginning, the church has been through wars, fires and a lot of restoration work, but has been kept in its original Mediaeval form. The only way to see the interiors of the church is by attending the ceremonies on Sundays at 10a.
