Beschrijving

Grundtvig's Church was erected in commemoration of the great Danish priest, poet, and reformer N.F.S. Grundtvig (1783 - 1882). This monumental church is referred to in modern terms as a gothic cathedral.

Master builder and architect Peder Vilhelm Jensen Klint (1853 - 1930) died before the church was finished. The task was entrusted to his son architect and designer Kaare Klint (1888-1954), who completed the building of the church in 1940. Kaare Klint has also designed the chairs for the Grundtvig's Church - a chair made of beech wood with a wickerwork seat - a Danish furniture design classic. Despite its massive size, the church seems to exude an atmosphere of calm contentment. Perhaps it is the appeal of the regular yellow brickwork forming the sole decoration of the church.

English services

Sunday the 7th of October at 1 p.m. you can experience a traditional Danish service in English in Grundtvig's Church. The service will be like a normal Danish-Lutheran service but hymns, preaching and readings will be translated into English. It is a great opportunity to experience the calm serenity and impressive space and architecture of Grundtvig's Church.
