Even if I’ve lived in Copenhagen for four years now, it was just last week that I did my first visit in Vor Frelsers Kirke, the church at Christianshavn. I used to work at Christianshavn and I’ve passed it many times, but I just never entered. Last Friday, at an instawalk with Danish Instagrammers and bloggers, it was about time!

Vor Frelsers Kirke is builed in the 1680s, and the architecture is influenced by the baroque style. The organ is a piece of art itself, and it’s no surprise that it’s one of the most photographed organs in Europe. It’s so big, that I didn’t manage to fit it into one photo – which says a lot about how magnificent it is. When turning around inside the church, so you have your back towards the organ, you’ll see the alter – which is just as magnificent.

When you’re done with your walk inside the church, it’s time to climb the top. It costs 35 dkk for an adult to get access to the top, and trust me – it’s worth it! It’s quite a climb to get up to the top, and when I walked the stairs, it felt like they would continue forever. But after lots of stairs, you’ll reach the top. The view is amazing, and even wilder if you dare to walk the stairs outside the roof at the tower, that takes you to the absolute top.
