Holmen’s Church

IMG_6041

Holmen’s Church is a church located at Holmen’s Kanal in central Copenhagen.

In 1562-63, the church was an anchor smithy and in 1619 king Christian 4 decided that the building should be rebuilt to a church for the sailors who lived in the area. In 1941, the church was extended to the church, as we know it today.

The church has also been used for royal events such as weddings and christenings.

My own experience: It is a big and beautiful church, which definitely is worth a visit if you are in the area.
IMG_6044In Danish: Holmens kirke er en kirke der ligger ved Holmens Kanal i indre København.

I 1562-63 var kirken en ankersmedje og i 1619 besluttede Christian 4. at bygningen skulle ombygges til en kirke til de sømænd der boede i området.
I 1941 blev kirken udvidet til den kirke som vi kender i dag.

Kirken har også været brugt til kongelige begivenheder såsom bryllupper og barnedåb.

Mine egne erfaringer: Det er en stor og smuk kirke som helt klart er et besøg værd, hvis man er i området.
