At the heart of Vesterbro lies Elijah’s Church – the largest church built by the Copenhagen Church Foundation. The building was designed by Martin Nyrop- the same man who designed the stunning City Hall. In 1908, the church opened its doors for the public and even today, its importance in serving the Inner Mission in Denmark is not forgotten.
For the art lovers, the Neo- Romanesque architecture of the church does stand out from the adjoining buildings. The structure is made from split sandstone and is loved for its rustic, rough façade. The interiors spin a different story with 3 naves, light colouredsandstone walls, gorgeous wooden embellishments and a central section that was raised to let in more natural light. The vaulted choir is raised 8 steps from the nave and embraced by beautiful wood work. The main altar consist of three grand paintings that forms the highlight of the church. However, the place is loved even more for its tranquillity and even though it dates back to the early 20th century, the church does have timeless appeal.
