Beautiful round church dating from the 18th century in one of Copenhagen's inner suburbs. The Frederiksberg Church was designed in the 1730s by Dutch architect Felix Dusart. The churchyard is particularly lovely, a garden of well-tended graves set amidst sheltering pines, a haven of quiet.

Near the altar of the church is a tablet commemorationg the poet Adam Oehlenschlaeger, considered the father of Danish romanticism. The poet is buried in the churchyard, and pilgrims often come to pay their respects.

I came here for a concert of baroque music - Handel and Vivaldi. Excellent acoustics in the church, an ideal setting for music that was "modern" at the time of its construction.

Directions: Vesterbro, Nørrebro, Østerbro, Frederiksberg
