The Church of Our Saviour (Danish: Vor Frelsers Kirke) is a church in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is characterized by its black and golden spire and carillon, which plays melodies every hour from 8 am to midnight.
The spire is open for visitors who can walk on the outside of it and get a spectacular view over Copenhagen. The church is mentioned in Jules Verne's Journey to the Centre of the Earth.
The church of our saviour was built in the late 1600s, a time where church construction in Denmark stood still. Opposed to other Danish churches, The Church of Our Saviour has a Dutch baroque-style.
The church's architect, Lambert van Haven was the "generalbygmester" of the king. He drew the church in 1682, and never got to see his church fully constructed because of his death in 1695.
