Frederiks Kirke

Frederik Kirke

Frederiks Kirke is one of the most significant landmarks of central Copenhagen. For its ornate Rococo style, the church is known locally as the Marble Church (Marmokirken).

The church belongs to the Evangelical Lutheran Church and is often mistakenly attributed to the Amalienborg royal complex due to its proximity to the church.

The giant dome with a view

Marmokirken has a very interesting architecture and actually consists of only one single huge dome, which also serves as the nave of the church.

Construction of the church began in 1749 and was completed in 1894. It is entirely in the style of ornate rococo.

The dome, with a span of 31 metres and a height of 46 metres, is the largest in all of Scandinavia and far exceeds all the surrounding buildings within the historic centre.

This is one of the reasons why the church is one of the most popular sightseeing spots, as it is on the dome that you will find a small viewing platform.

Admission and opening hours

The church is open to tourists at the following times:

  • Monday to Thursday + Saturday: 10:00-17:00.
  • Friday: 12:00-17:00
  • Sunday: 12:30-17:00

The dome is only accessible at 13:00 and 15:00 and only on Saturday and Sunday.

The ticket price for the dome is 50 dkk. Admission to the temple itself is free.
