Grundtvig Kirke – Sublime architecture on the hill

In the most outer area of Nørrebro you’ll find this stunningly unique piece of architecture. It’s made entirely from yellow bricks, which makes it an architectural mixture of Brick Expressionism and Gothic.

The church was completed in 1940 and is now one of the most valued churches in Copenhagen. The nave inside is completely amazing, it’s actually hard to explain the grandeur of it, and I urge you to go have a look for yourself. Being a church I find it quite simple and easy on the eye. The matte stones compliment the light display inside and the fact that there are no “in-built” benches is also something that makes Grundtvig Kirke quite outstanding.

The surrounding grounds consists of a huge cemetery, great for a nice stroll (or a place to get completely lost) – it’s mystically beautiful during any season of the year. I live nearby and always find this spot a great setting for a peaceful stroll. I am not religious, but because of its architectural sublimity this church helps me always feel inspired.
