I got lucky when I visited, because the organist was practicing some of his music. It was really nice to sit and listen for a while.

We absolutely loved the statues inside and out! Very calming and welcoming church. We had to wait for a wedding to take place before we could go inside but it was well worth it!

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
