Located close to the King’s Garden, the St. Paul's Church is a part of the time when innumerable churches were built in Copenhagen to accommodate the growing population. The church was built in the late 1870’s and was designed by Johannes Emil Gnudtzmann with classic red brick structure that incorporated high arches, pinnacles, columns and a central church tower with a clock face. Even though the church itself is quiet a stunning piece of architecture, it is located in a relatively underrated neighbourhood and hence, is one of the less explored places in Copenhagen.

The interiors of the church embraces Italian Renaissance with a few touches from the Romanticism era. The seating area hold candles on the edge that add a subtle rustic elegance to the place while the beautiful chandeliers and the main alter made by sculptor Jens Adolf Jerichau stands in front of a gorgeous dome structure. If you are looking for a quiet, spiritual spot in the city, a visit here will be well worth your time.

Sankt Pauls Kirke, Copenhagen Reviews - Write a Review

  • Beautiful church in cute quarter

  • Loved this church Saint Pauls Church because it's in a beautiful but often overlooked part of town between Kongens Have (the King's Garden) and Nyboder (the yellow terrace houses built for seamen in 1631). It was built in 1877. Sankt Pauls Kirke it's danish name was inspired by the Italian Renaissance. It draw my attention the façade strictly symmetrical and the ornaments on the tower beautifully arranged. ****

  • Kirken der i flere omgange er reddet fra lukning ved afstemning i lokalområdet. Præsten, Kathrine Lilleør, leverer en levende og tids aktuel prædiken. Selv Hendes Kongelige Højhed, Dronning Margrethe kommer her.

  • Typisk dansk bykirke fra slutningen af det 18th århundrede. Spiret virker dog specielt med sin mustensdækning.
