The Marmokirken is clearly modelled on St. Peter's in Rome. Construction started in the mid-18th century but owing to lack of funds the church wasn't completed until the late 19th century.

It's free to visit the interior but you have to pay 30 Krone and show up on the right day and at the right time to visit the dome. The attendant takes groups up twice daily at weekends at 1pm and 3pm.

It's an interesting climb to the top. The first stop is on the circular balcony overlooking the interior of the church. Then you begin a long climb through the musty, dark interior of the dome until you reach the top.

It's well worth it for the views. On a clear day you can see the Oresund bridge in the distance. This is one of the longest bridges in Europe and it connects Denmark to Sweden.
