  • For anyone interested in churches, or architecture in general,Grundtvigs Church is a must see. It is built completely of brick, even the pillars inside, and looks pretty intimidating from the outside but is very light and spacious inside. It is pretty far out from Central Copenhagen but it is very easy to get to by public transport. Simply take a 6A bus that is heading east and you’ll be there in about 20 minutes.
  • It was a nice experience , I liked it , although I wasn't quite impressed as the majority of reviews says. I believe it's still worth going but my expectations were so high (from reviews hereby posted ) that , again, I found it not particularly "impressive" , just nice . Part of the check list while in Copenhagen. I thought it was interesting that town houses tightly and closely surround the church , now that is something !
